1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Was wondering if any of our fishing experts could offer some advice.

    I'm off down to Falmouth for a couple of weeks mid-August with wife & kids. I normally do a days wreck fishing with one of the companies operating from the quay.

    But... are there any options for doing a bit of fishing on my own without having to spend a fortune on gear and also bearing in mind I have absolutely zero idea of what I'm doing. I'm guessing the answer is no, but thought I'd ask anyway.

    Back-up plan is crabbing :cool:

    Cheers in advance.

    Flushing offers good mackerel fishing with spinner off rocks, although if you want a quick bag a beach casting outfit with feathers will pull them in 3 or more at a time. Best time early morning, 5.00- 6.00 when the mackerel are chasing the small fry close in, with fish jumping out of water indicating where to cast. Keep near surface to avoid snagging on rocks. Drive through village, past quay, and bear left on Trefusus Road until you reach gate at start of coastal footpath to Mylor, walk across meadow and carefully climb down on to rocky headland. Parking will be problem during summer months but packing up by 8.00 am should avoid trouble. Best of luck, wish I was back there.

    If you do go crabbing take a few of those little nylon bags that go into washing machines with some sort of tablet in them, your missus will know what I mean. Get some bits of bacon and pop them in the bag and then with a length of nylon line or fishing line start crabbing but be prepared to catch loads as the crabs get their claws hooked into the mesh and rarely drop off.
    My grandchildren always caught tons of crabs and the record was two hundred odd one evening off Penryn quay.
