    Just been reading up on them Rupert, they look good for the money so one will be on order soon :yes: Cheers for that bud.

    Also, do you know if there is there a joining fee for the York AC?

    No joining fee as far as I know - have a skeg at their website http://www.ydaa.org.uk/index.html

    I seem to remember the annual ticket runs from 1st January each year, but you'd better check.

    Ive been looking on the York site for some time now, but cant make my mind up with regards to joining :gum:

    They seem to have some decent rivers stretches Dave. I wasn't going to bother joining a club next year (I haven't for the last few years) as 99% of my fishing these days is sea fishing, however Jan-May the sea fishing is pants.
    Once the ice melts I'm sorted for stillwater Pike/Carp fishing but I really fancy some Grayling fishing and quivertipping for Chub/Barbel. York seem to have one or two bits of river suitable for fly fishing as well which is handy come March/April.

    I'm already in a few clubs that offer good fishing for those species Sam thats why i've held back on joining York. Dont forget about the Leeds club, as they offer plenty of water. Bradford AC do as well.

    Great! Now I can't decide between Leeds or York AC! Cheers Dave! :cheesy: :cheesy:

    This pin is worth a look http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/IKONIX-CENTRE-PIN-REEL-/310264995930?pt=UK_SportsLeisure_Fishing_Reels_JN&hash=item483d3c205a&afsrc= and the same reel from a different scource but at a much better price and they're selling like hot cakes at a hot cake stall http://www.dragoncarpdirect.com/products/Marco-Cortesi-Signature-Centrepin-reel.html is

    Both of those above are the same reel as the TFG pin which retails at a penny under a £100

    I know Dragon carp have'nt got any in at the moment and are waiting for there new stock to arrive but the link should work when they arrive

    Who else fishes with a 'centre pin' - if so what make and model reel do you use?

    What are opinions on line guards - having used one on my Hardy Conquest for the first time, I found it helped quite a bit. :yes:

    I use a Grice and Young, Avon Royale Supreme with a line guard and see no good reason to remove it, nice reel albeit getting on a bit now but still good and coupled with a spliced tip float rod is a joy to use

    ducky maybe one day...

    Something I have been thinking about. I have just started for fishing and was thinking center pin for grayling.

    The centre pin i use for grayling if im ever going to get myself out is older than me and i was leant it and now sadly the fellow has died and i am the proud owner.
    Its called the Major and was made by Mordex Precistion Industries , Sheffield. England.
    The reel has a line guard on it which was broken when i was given the reel but i have repaired the guard myself .
    The reel might be heavy by todays alloys but it still catches grayling.
    The rod i usually use will be older than myself because it was bought second hand by my father when i was first starting fishing.
    The rod is solid fiberglass with brass ferrels and a long cork handle and two seperate sections its a spinning rod judging by the rings on it.
    Both are great to use and bring memories back .
    Wish i could drag my lazy body out to do a spot of grayling fishing.

    I was shooting topside of Pickering today and crossed the Rye on the Malton/Pickering road. The snow melt has pushed it well up, so I think that will curtail any grayling for a few days now. :sad:

    Incidentally there's a Go Fishing 'Centrepin Special' on Discovery Shed right now and Wilson is catching some very pretty grayling.
    Its repeated at 5pm today.
