  1. This under my bungalow in Brundall http://catchpro.co.uk/
  2. Just general advice on getting the boat straighter when mooring alongside... and yes I think it may have been the younger chap!
  3. I was out in my boat for the first overnighter at the weekend and ended up mooring at Reedham. Having secured my ropes the BA operative stationed there came along and asked if everything was OK which I replied yes. He then asked me if I was OK with my ropes in which I also replied yes, so he wandered off to the next boat to help them tie up. I wondered if I'd have asked him was anything wrong with my mooring lines whether he would have said yes, so I went over and had a word. He came back and educated me with a better way of tying up and not only that but a bit of further free advice. Firstly, I didn't know the BA put personnel permanently on these types of moorings and secondly what a nice pleasant chappie he was enjoying his work. So, a big thumbs-up from me and although I know some of you will say that’s what we pay our tolls for, I say value for money.
  4. I agree the UK seems to have a more hostile booze culture that likes these mindless acts of vandalism or violance!
  5. Tom Fuller do all our pickups from Brundall as they are based locally
  6. Bottled becks is my choice as well, the first one after not drinking for a few days goes in about 39secs ?

    Well done that was the first boat I stayed on in 1989 that started my love affair with the Broads...I'll stick a photo up later
  9. Yeh I've found at least 3 biting critters around. Mozzies are the worst for me as I have some sort of reaction when I get done, they end up like boiled eggs. There's also some blackish delta winged jobbers about 5mm that give a good account of themselves and there’s the minute buggers that are all over the place at the moment, certainly in Cheshire and Norfolk that give a little nick that hours or a day later start itching like billyOh! I’ve been mullered recently but I must say the Cheshire mozzies are the SAS of the fly world and the size of Crane flies
  10. On the Yare you can catch well at Brundall gardens and Bramerton
  11. Anyone been out and wetted a line? Me...had a 60lb Bream Roach and Perch start along with acouple of pike at about 5lb and 7lb. It could have been a lot more but angler and tackle misfunction contributed well!!

    Plenty of enthusiasts about and the crossing staff were very good with quick opening and closing and on the plus side our train to Norwich was the best we have had ?
  13. Yes I use PW Angling the bait is spot on and very friendly service
  14. Double Doh! Cheers chaps food for thought
  15. Doh...should have asked I was in there on Saturday!
  16. Cheers Grendel and Dnks34 I'll give it a go its got to be better than the abomination I produced earlier...now in the bin and one reg mark short
  17. I know the stuff does that work OK as I thought it might be a bit flimsy and wear away in the wind? I've got some of that knocking around...now where is it!
  18. I've just tried to make my own plate holders from perspex to tie on to the bow rails and made a complete 'town halls' of them! So can anybody tell me the if you can buy licence plates to stick the registration stickers on or the best material to use. Also I'm looking to renew the boat name in 316 stainless or chrome lettering has anybody got any ideas/contacts as I've just had a 4 figure quote (without a decimal) and the boat name isn't a welsh town Thanks Simon
  19. We went to the end last year (October ish) and was going to stop in the Ribs but there was already a boat there and couldn't be mithered so went to the mill and turned around...was a pleasant trip going into a city. The Red lion (or next to it) do a Pub n Paddle kayak rental and there were plenty out when we were there, not sure the 2 go together though
  20. I hope they don't ruin my swim on the 16th ?
  21. Is that a double entendre
  22. Unashamedly I was glad Real won ? (being a city fan!). Thought that Salah going off was pivotal and after that Real were worthy winners, especially the Bale goal. Really feel for Karius, that will potentially ruin his career I hope he gets good personsl support.
  23. I'll be there the one swaying about and laughing too loud around the outside bar area.
