Noisy angling

Post by TAB on Mon Aug 27, 2012 9:00 pm

From as early in my fishing as I can remember, the use of a mallet for smashing in bivvie pegs/bank sticks was a massive no-no, and it's something I have never done and never will.
So why is that everyone with a Farnham permit does it Mad
The other one is to have the alarms set so loud that everyone on the lake hears every line bite Shocked , whats that all about????
Maybe I'm getting old and grumpy but I can't get my head around it Very Happy

This happens in all walks of life mate , not just angling .

It's down to lack of respect , ettiquette and maners ! Sadly , happening all over the country in every day life !

It's the " I don't give a toss culture"

The swims on our lakes at Ringwood are like concrete, so mallets to have their purpose. I use a rubber mallet to keep the noise down, when I do have to use it

My main bugbear, is when people adjust their line, while the rods are on the alarms! Evil or Very Mad

i hate pods so mallets are a necessary evil in some circumstances as far as im concerned. no need for the for the full windmill arm and run up though like some you see.

They are ENTIRELY unecessary - haven't needed one for more than twenty years - a quality peg will make a pilot hole, and if it's so hard you feel you need a mallet, then use a pod.

Biggest hate for me is when someone sets the line and alarm is ringing out so loud, then wonder why their batteries have run out after 2 sessions...

(boring useless information.) Idea


using a mallet can be a science lesson, the guy at the other end of the lake strikes with his mallet, you see him do it, but the sound arrives to you after a interval, as the speed of sound is in action.

but its still a pain. No

The bite alarm comment is a bug bear with me.

Why do some cast out and then place rod in rests then reel all the slack in with buzzer stiil on.... i do it buy lifting the line out of "v" of buzzer then place in when taught. and keep the m low as poss and sit right behind the rods. prefffer not to let other's know i have a run.

I remember doing this on bawbrugh lakes over 10yrs ago, just purely to stop all the bivvy boy's standing up and watching through bino's. we caught some good tench and bream without half the lake knowing of them.

Hate the constant alarm noises whilst they are being set and there is no need for it, as for mallets, i cant recall ever needing to use one but if the ground is that hard then needs must, carp dont live in a silent vibration free enviroment.

I have solar stainless bank sticks for the alarms fitted with stabilizers, and I just use a spare stainless bank stick rested across the stabilizer and push with all my weight on each side to force the alarm bank stick into the ground, presto! No noise cheers

I'm with Kevin here, use a decent bivvy peg to drill a hole, then push the bankstick into it, easy as that!

As for alarms being on full and constantly messed with, always found a "Jokey" snide comment does the trick. Something like "New larms mate? Not found the volume switch yet?" usually gets through unless they are real inbreds.

When I fished Farnham, the hammers,alarms and general attitude of a fair few of the members was enough for me to move on quickly... as for getting past the hammer, I'm lucky to have access to some wonderful tools, so I made up a digging tool out of a 6mm drill bit attached to a bar so I could start the holes with out the need of a hammer.
The other thing which really helped for rock hard banks, is screw in pegs as used by the caravan brigade, well worth the money!
Atts alarms (love or hate them) mean that I can have them set for my ears only, and love it when people say, "I didn't hear you have that fish mate!!!" love it!!!

Ask them to use a rubber mallet - it keeps noise to a minimum! Laughing Laughing Laughing

A few minutes of using a mallet when needed dont bother me, fish dont live in silent vibration free zones, its the constant noise which is usually alcohol induced which does.

The strange thing is, I know a few who use mallets and they still catch far more whackers than the average angler...

worse than mallets is the anglers who think fish recognise their voices and thus talk non stop Smile

IN carp days of yore, just two rod rests, and silver paper or bread dough for indication acting as a bobbin.

today's anglers are pampered. Very Happy

I unfold my pod and hey presto as well, no noise!
Malleteers will put down fish for quite some time.
