English to English Dictionary

Carpoholic,

I love this thread. When I first joined carp.com I had to always ask the British guys what they meant by this and that. Eventually I figured some of the terminology out on my own, like margins, hooklengths and method feeders. I remember having to ask them what they meant by a linear carp. I think this thread will be very beneficial to the beginning carp anglers. Thanks :D:D

I got trapped in a rainy FL hotel for about 4 days.  Did manage to write another MidWest Outdoors article as well.  Finished "River Carping" by Neil Wayte, see report elsewhere.  Couldn't force myself to watch much TV.

I think a post like this should count as more than one toward my attaining guber status like yourself and Keith :D

brian,the first chapter on the arun is our local river! its where we are fishing this summer and also where james and my uk pb's come from!

andy skinner is one of my mates and the mirror that dave eaton is holding has fallen to james rods!

i love it down there! its as far removed from the busy uk scene as you can get.its also the second fastest flowing tidal river in the uk so a real challenge.

we used 500kg of bait in a month last year and will be giving it the biggun again this year!

liked the list but when are you going to do the double dutch cockney version :D

I'm ill equiped to do such a version. Perhaps BillD and a few others might put one together :D

Good luck on the Arun. It sounds as if the river scene in the UK is a bit more like carping here in the USA - more of an unknown :D

Its all gone Pete Tong mate

Guy's please keep you Alans on.......

That's your Alan Wickers (Knickers)

Oh ...I can have some serious fun with this thread

How's this one,

There is a Bird down our Frog and Toad who has a great Bottle and Glass, and to think of it she has a great pair of Ertha Kitt's, :D But her boat race is a bit 2&8. The only problem is she has great big plates of meat.

Work that one out.

I can keep this going for ever.

Cheating really being a Brit, but it's kinda easy.....

There's a woman down our road who has a great arse. and to think of it, she has a great pair of tits :D But her face is a bit of a state. The only problem is she has great big feet......

I happen to know this bird and I've got to say that despite her shortcomings she's always been good for a J. Arthur after a few pigs ears and and a Vera or two!

For Newt-

1 billion = 1,000,000,000 = 1 thousand million (it used to be one million million, but we changed to fit in with you guys)

Yeah, but ain't it funny how one of the few people in the World with the intelligence to truly appreciate such vastness still considers a billion to be 1 million times 1 million. I'll stick with the original number, if it's good enough for Mr S.W. Hawking I think it'll do for me.
