Went to the ebach this morning, ready for high tide and the incoming mackeral.


I caught 4 on the 1st cast.
Ds2 caught 3, Dh caught 5.....but only I got one on each "feather" (technical term for a hook with a sparkly bit to attrach the fish).

I've now discovered I'm actually quite bloody good at this fishing lark so want my own rod.

I want a pink one though, just to be dificult.

Does such a thing exist.....

tigerschick Sun 26-Aug-07 15:54:14

can't have a normal black one though can I Misdee??

DH and the boys have black ones.

I want pink....

tigerschick Sun 26-Aug-07 15:55:18

Ah - maybe the one I found is the one that isn't pink enough - it is quite subtle. smile

i think nutty wins the pound.

i think i should get 50p for tellling you you are a big girl wink

A whole site for girl fishers.

How cool is that??

lou33 Sun 26-Aug-07 15:58:21

i know lol

jaynehater Sun 26-Aug-07 15:58:34

Thanks a bunch, DH is now holding you up as an exemplary specimen of womanhood, and my 11 year mission to convince him that fishing is an unnaturally dull pursuit is in tatters.

<jaynehater kneels miserably, sobbing, as DH bores for Britain on the specific conditions required for mackerel catching>

LadyTophamHatt Sun 26-Aug-07 16:00:09

Ohh Bummmmer, its a n americane site though.

Nutty, yours are VERY pink. I think you could be the winner....

I might just add here too, that it was ME that gutted them all.

All that chopping heads off, and pulling the guts out was quite theraputic(sp??)

lou33 Sun 26-Aug-07 16:02:16

yes american but places like that ofetn ship to the uk , tho i havent checked that place

i have LOADS of lure fishing rods and lures and shite if you are near me and want some

am getting rid of exh's crap slowly and surely

LadyTophamHatt Sun 26-Aug-07 16:16:33

Lou, Dh is at work ATM but I reackon he'd stake the whole lot of yor hannds if you're getting rid of it.

How much did you want for it?

Quest is now over.

Although Nutty wins for pinkness, I got the Ebay one that I'd seen and tigerschick posted. Absolulutely no idea what else I need but at least I have a pink rod!

LadyTophamHatt Sun 26-Aug-07 16:17:29

*reckon he'd take*

(I'm starting to annoy myself with all my typos)

lou33 Sun 26-Aug-07 16:23:37

i have no idea i will take any offer that sounds fair tbh, i have no idea what its worth, but he has loads of rods and lures

he used to fish for pike

LadyTophamHatt Sun 26-Aug-07 16:31:44

Ok, I'll tell him about it tomorrow but living so close to the sea he's (or should that be we're now grin) more likely to do sea fishing so I'm not sure if its the right stuff.

lou33 Sun 26-Aug-07 16:47:43

where are you again?

LadyTophamHatt Sun 26-Aug-07 16:53:00

East sussex, so IIRC not too far from you.

lou33 Sun 26-Aug-07 17:02:39

yes not that far really

i have a dinghy with engine going as well, he used it for river fishing

LadyTophamHatt Sat 01-Sep-07 14:44:22

Sorry lou, I forgto aboutthi sone.

I told Dh aboutt all the stuff yo have but he said he's got enough. we're moving soon and although the house is bigger we're losing the garage so storage space will be a premium. fishing tackle will come waaayyyyy down the list on storage space!
Thanks anyway.

My pink fishing rod arrived the other day. I think DH is rather intimidated but my obvious talent for fishing because I've asked him to set it all up a fair few times and he still hasn't done it.
I think he's scared.
