    quint Watch out Emperor Zorg's about

    Whilst watching sky sports news today, seeing all the developments as managers try to improve their teams, it got me thinking what items and ideas I have found or used recently that have improved my fishing and/or made it more enjoyable, heres what I came up with within the last 5 years

    Internet, consisting of:

    Specific angling websites, this site being without doubt number one
    Weather sites, mostly Windguru
    Google Earth
    Tackle sites

    Specific Fishing

    LED headlights
    Long rod/fixed spool set up
    Better rod - reelsport
    Better reel - saltist
    Circle hooks
    Digital camera

    I've probably missed a few along the way too, so come on lads name your improvements

    And going along with the theme of transfer deadlines, which one could you sell, and which one could you not function without, and finally what do you want to improve your game

    Mine are:

    Sell - circle hooks
    Never - think it has to be cart
    Target - a bass tagging kit

    Sambo To the MAX!

    Ooooh, good thread Iain :yes:

    for me I guess it's as follows:


    Eniviroment Agency river height website
    Google Earth
    Whitby Sea Anglers (and one or two other forums)


    And, oh, kayak!

    I haven't been sea fishing for more than 5 yrs so I guess the sea fishing on a whole has much improved my fishing in general. Kayak fishing has made such a difference, it's like starting fishing all over again!

    Sell: My fish bag :embarrass: Tripod
    Never: Kayak
    Target: Rock Rod n Reel

    Hi Iain,

    I will give some more thought before making a post. I notice you mentioned wavenet. I was first enlightened on live wave bouys by MWW a good few years back now. I maintain it to be one of the most useful tools at a sea anglers disposal. The new bouy at Whitby has me confused, so I still use the one I'm used to which is the one off Hartlepool. Actual sea direction plays more of a role in catches than a lot of people think and in my old club fishing days I would put a lot of successful sessions down to the live data presented by Wavenet. I am still amazed at how many people do not understand the links between sea direction and which marks will fish, Im even more amazed by how many people with years of experience still get swell direction wrong when they look at the sea.
