Tenet,

To the first part of your post the answer is in the negative. The only one I had is still in the booby box, but I will tie one or two more.

To the second part I heartily agree. I have a lot of metal in my left leg and getting in or out of the boat is always a risk operation. It would not take a lot to put the sort of stanchion on that Chew have for example.

Sympathise with you Doug and injuries could have been worse.It is a bit of an adventure getting on and off the boats for some of us seniors especially when fishing solo.I have not boat fished No 1 because of this.So far have always managed on the No 2 boat dock quite easily although couple of times has been an adventure getting back onto the dock.Glad you had a good day but sad to see ''Darth'' The Allrounder has influenced your methodology.I have done my share of Back Drifting on Farmoor but always looked up to you Doug as a beacon of hope and possible salvation.As the man said.''When you look into the dark side careful you must be because the dark side looks back''. The tug is the drug.A productive session and home in more or less one piece.How bad can it be.All the best for the op.Maybe tie up some ''Goats Toe'' Boobies whilst you recuperate.Talk soon.

Plenty of time yet to put Darth Vader and all his tricks to bed for the summer. I, too, look forward to fishing buzzers on the floater, but until then if its down on the deck where they want it to be then that's where we have to put it. Hats off to Doug for recognising the need during the winter months and kitting himself out accordingly. Another month to six weeks and then we'll see.

I've had both knees replaced,right hip replaced and right ankle fused so a true metal Mickey. Not sure why the rangers aren't present at whistle blowing time to help folk. Certainly Chew these past few seasons have provided assistance. I'm sure the rangers have other duties but to the lay person one wonders what they are.

I have e-mailed TW and will report back IF I get a response.

Full marks to TW Farmoor - they responded to my email this am and confirmed that they are aware of the problems associated with disembarkation at the pontoons. Apparantly the pontoons are currently the responsibility of the Sailing Club who have,i guess, resisted improvements but the good news is that TW take over responsibility in the near future and they will be in a position to make improvements.

Can't happen soon enough. Cool

Regards - Doug

That would have been an interesting situation. Yacht club are responsible for the pontoon but refuse safety improvements. Angler falls and injures himself getting in/out of a boat moored to an unsafe pontoon. I doubt there would have been a sailing club once H & S had finished with them.

Good luck with your student sprocker. Will undoubtedly take time and a lot of patience.Probably scorching the grass at the moment.Guessing not a first time owner to take on a sprocker. Laughing

silver invicta. if you will go and get a dog that is half a lunatic springer and half a barking mad cocker you end up with a sprocker. My 9 month old ESS is the most difficult dog to manage I've ever had, and he's my 8th ESS. I thought I understood the breed, but he is something else entirely. I suspect that if I ever manage to boot a brain cell into him he'll turn out to be one of the best, but it's going to be a real trial getting there!

My first sprocker ( had ESS and WC ) before . Wished I had kept a diary , could have written a book , would have had to go in the fiction section as nobody would believe all the antics he has got up to , and still only just over a year old . Never had to resort to long line training , garden looks like a war zone , special diet ( gluten intolerant ) , eats and chews anything , the list is endless !! Local keeper told me about him when I was after a pup to replace an old ESS ! He ain`t gonna beat me !!!

I keep thinking my lunatic will come good , just over a year old , still plenty of time but hard work . One day I think I may have cracked it , then I have a week of manic behaviour .

You know the old saying about Labs are born part trained and spaniels........Your account immediately brings to mind an illustration in Roger Mcphail's book Open Season Laughing I have a friend who is a head keeper on local Estate and all his pack are several generations of sprockers. Well they kinda train each other and we reckon he does not work them as such he just follows them around.To be fair they do sweep an area picking up very well but never heard a whistle in their busy lives.I do wish you luck and success.Lot of years of pleasure if can control a spirited sprocker.

Has anyone been fishing Farmoor? The catch reports are looking quite good on Twitter.
I will be going again in April and will no doubt renew my season ticket.

Spoke to rangers yesterday - levels up,still pumping and loads of buzzers with shucks in wind lanes. Fish still deepish but when caught are stuffed with buzzers. Looking good for the next few weeks methinks. Smile

I'm just back from there. A bit odd really. I was expecting the fish to be deep but feeding on buzzers. There were plenty around. I rigged up a 20' leader with a heavy buzzer on the point and a smaller one about 6' up. Indicator at the junction of line & leader. About the fifth cast the indicator ripped away within a few seconds of landing & then I saw a couple of fish rise so I twigged that I was fishing below them. That one dropped off,

I switched to a midgetip and lighter buzzers & bumped off three in about 20 minutes. By now I'm getting a bit niggly. Not like me to bump off four on the trot. Finally got it sorted & managed to put 4 in the net, but should have been 7. The sun got through at lunchtime and that effectively put an end to it.

Fish are still being caught deep well out apparently.
