Another vote of support.

Good read, when Rob gets it right its a top quality mag which few can match

11-04-2006, 10:04

This issue is certainly one of the best in a long time, Pingewood and Roach pieces were excellent but the whole mag seems to have gone up a gear, keep up the good work

I do wish he would stop banging on about the Mag-aligner though, Rob believes it to be as revolutionary as the hair rig, no one elso on the planet does. There is nothing worse than blowing your own trumpet. Agreed the Roach Pit and Pingewood articles were excellent, but would of prefered the Pingewood article to have been called 'The berkshire pit' myself http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gifyou have to take your hat off to rob though,as he has certainley emptied a few waters with his mag aligner,obviously a very good method ,combined with a superb angler!!!

12-04-2006, 11:56
I think the reason he keeps putting it in the mag, i beacuse he gets so many phone calls asking how to tie it up properley, how to use it most effectively etc. that it's easier to put in the magazine and let people read it and keep for reference.

12-04-2006, 11:57
was that the CEMEX Roach Pit or a different one?

12-04-2006, 11:59
Thats fair enough I guess and he has done very well on it himself, but as revolutionary as the hair rig?

Not for me.........

12-04-2006, 11:59
may have missed the point here, but in what magazine is this article! im sure you are all going to tell me "big carp" magazine, just ive never heard of it!


12-04-2006, 12:02
Pingewood article to have been called 'The berkshire pit' myself - Think that cat is well and truely out of the bag.

The mag alinger isnt as evolutionary as the hair or even the line alinger. Its just a different shaped line alinger. A good method though.

12-04-2006, 12:24
Yes it was the Cemex one (Roach pit). http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif

12-04-2006, 12:26
I wish Rob would right more of his own stuff in the magazine, like the old rotary letter.

12-04-2006, 12:32
loved his 'man for all seasons' series as well. top writer in the technical and story telling department is rob!

12-04-2006, 13:10
Yes I know, I was only joking, it was an excellent article from James http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif

12-04-2006, 16:25
Just read the mag, Fantastic read,

Keep up the good work!

12-04-2006, 16:41
A BIG thank you to Rob Maylin, Alex Brookes and Jamie (and anyone else who knows me ...) for being stars today - incredibly helpful, nice chaps and some wonderful photos - cheers!

I agree - your mags not too shaby either! best 2 mags on the market passionate writing really brings home what carping is all about

13-04-2006, 08:47
I enjoyed reading about the Pingewood fish, and very nice fish they are too! I did, however find the Article style to be a bit mechanical - 'turned up for another 4 days, couldn't get any of the swims going' etc. Just felt that there could have been more 'feeling' put into it.

13-04-2006, 11:17
Give James a chance, this is his first tentitive steps into writing about his catches, i thought he did a good job for his first piece. More still to come from him.

13-04-2006, 12:08
I thoroughly enjoyed Jame's piece, and especially his raysbury article previously.

Mate I think you should look closely at what Rob has caught on this rig, he tore Frimley apart in a matter of days. When like Rob you have been up there with the best of them then i don't think he is blowing his own trumpet just something he know works.

Just got Big Carp for the first time in years on the strength of this thread.

Awesome read, right back to how it used to be in the early days. The article on Roach was excellent.
