  3. Any kind of vegetation the Chod rig is a good option. It's my go to pop up rig as it can be thrown over almost any debris
  4. i used to pay up to 100 bucks for a weekend day ticket, and 1500 bucks a year for a syndicate spot. one of the pros of the usa scene is all that free access
  5. I certainly think that those cover shots have generated a level of interest outside the USA amongst carp anglers who may have never previously read NACA because the previous cover shots did not appeal enough for them to read it. that is not a dig at previous editors, I think Mario and Santosh did a great job also and I was happy to contribute to previous magazines. As a purist for me the cover shot needs a carp on it, and one that will entice the reader to look further. I also think that this is a great opportunity for CAG members to 1. get some top quality material in the magazine to promote either themselves and/or the sport, and 2. attempt to capture a picture good enough to get on the cover. I don't think we need a big named European angler on the cover each edition, but I think Dean has done a great job in taking NACA to the next level, and this was one strategy that did it. Also do not forget this was a winter edition....when most of us are not actually out fishing which means content is harder to find. This is also the same with the Euro and UK magazines in winter as they too struggle for content and catch reports in the colder months.
  6. I don't know. You get two of the biggest names in carp fishing to do this for FREE and people whine. Lets go back to a 1 megapixel photo of a pod or a pack on the cover. By far the best edition from front to back. More of the same please Dean.....its about time NACA caught up with the times and looked like a proper and professional carp magazine.
  7. I refuse to use that bait companies products so i have no chance of making the team.
  8. when its done without a back door agenda then i may be more supportive
  9. I think the main criteria was the bait company you were affiliated to rather than your country of birth!!!
  10. enjoy the import bill you will get in a months time, they dont tell you about that
  11. Still amazes me that people read one part of a story and are so narrow minded that it must be the truth. Darn , I just dropped an egg, do I sue the supermarket, company or the chicken?
  12. Phil and mark - don't embaress yourselves acting like you know what your talking about. Matt- Nash just paid for a feature on USA carping to go into carpworld, and have invested time and money bringing bait over so how exactly are they not interested?
  13. chub/greys stood behind their products for a reason, i had three nets break in as many months. yes they had excellent customer service by replacing it time again, but the product was rubbish so was no good to me when i needed it. its easy to make the brand a scapegoat when we dont really know what happened. its a bit like buying a car, driving it into a lamppost and wanting it replaced/repaired for free. if its a manufacturers issue fair enough, if its an angler error then its on you. clearly im not accusing anyone of making the error or of foul play as i was not there to witness what happened. im just saying that liability is an important factor. if you drop an egg and it breaks or it was broke on giants shelf that makes for two different issues. try the email and get back to me if you have any issues. i know kevin prides himself on customer service and quite often will deal with an issue himself, but he will also say go to vendor first.
  14. try the email, and let me know what they say
  15. Whats interesting is that initially it just broke, but now its was an accident!!! However, thats for you the vendor and Nash to discuss. As for your attack on me. 1. I'm an ambassador not a vendor so actually have no obligation to help with this. You contacted me initially about rods, i talked to you about them, and even checked with you off my own back how they were once you got them which you were. Already above and beyond my role. I don't actually have to do any of that!!! 2. I know that any issues Nash always say to contact the vendor, and if your not happy contact them via the email i provided. So to say i am not bothered in actually wrong as i replied to your message and pointed you were you need to go first. I followed the chain of command procedure and also have given you an additional contact email to try and help because you are dissatisfied. I understand your mad and i hope the email helps you get something sorted.
  16. If you used the rod several times landing fish without it breaking and then it broke just pulling out line on a loose clutch as you mentioned that to me is an angler issue not a manufacturing fault, as clearly the fault would have occurred under greater pressure of playing a fish earlier in its use. As i mentioned to you yesterday that was the first one i heard of breaking. Compared to other companies out there Nash have outstanding customer service. I'm sorry that you are unhappy with them, but a few weeks before this was your post to me on Facebook. "Yes! I they are awesome and not as stiff as I thought they would be. Im really impressed the load they can handle with casting big method balls. Nice. I got a few nice carp on them there other day. Also took them striper fishing there good multi purpose rods The rod holdall is really nice too I am thanks again for the pointing me in the right direction. if you are unhappy contact info@nashtackle.co.uk
  17. awesome result daniel, nice to see another fifty plus has made an appearance.
  18. We know your sixty plus Iain but how big was the grassy? Lol
  19. sugars excreting in this warmer weather, thats a good edge ;-) very hard to get mold on shelf lifes due to the preservatives used, i have had several bags open for couple years and some in buckets here and they are all fine
  20. Shimano reels are hard to get over here so brig some of them, everything else you can buy pretty easily
  21. Bring it, you will use it, and if not you can sell on here and make money. What part of the Uk? I'm from wolves!
  22. only just read it fully myself and made front cover too :-)
  23. Over the moon that Carpworld Magazine have put one of my articles into International Carper this month. Out now online, and Friday in shops, May edition. Features some zigging, stalking, a couple of unseen linear and two tone stunners and a special underwater fantail close up. Enjoy!!!
