    You have mis-remembered that slightly Jamie. The sarcastic rumour at the time was that there was a Mountie in the background - not mountains - implying where the fish were caught from.

    I can't see why it would cost 600 for a carbon bedchair when the Chinese are making carbon rods that retail for 20. It's not like you are going to want one made out of Hi S blanks.

    That might be because Fox bought the original idea for illuminated hangers around 1990 and probably hold the patent.

    The biggest Ebro cat I am aware of is 256lb.

    For rods look at the YAD ones on Askari if they still do them. The blanks look like my old Hutchy IMX's (they are IM6 carbon). I have 4 and they are...

    I've just picked up 3 spools of the 17lb for 15 a spool as it seemed like too much of a bargain to pass up. I can see why there is no abrasion resistance - crikey it's fine.

    I don't know, but they are legal in France and not in Spain. Lots of rules about boats too because of the fears they spread zebra mussels throughout the Ebro system.

    Keep your clonk under wraps - they are illegal on the Ebro, as are live and dead baits and 2 stroke motors.
