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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    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.

    Good evening every one. Dug out my AA s410 .22 Classic again to sort out a few rats around a 2 acre lake I have, running a very small syndicate of fly fishers, fields around have yielded a lot of sweet corn The latter has been at the back of my gun cabinet for longer than it should have been, the gun not the sweet corn:laff:, as I have been using heavier stuff to deal with the little varmints. Now shooting season is upon us, the noise would be an issue for the game shooters quarry. After browsing your forum, I have picked up a lot of information and have enjoyed the read ups. Not too good on computers, I'm an oldie, but have found your site very user friendly, with friendly users.

    Hi Macdoog, if you fancy a bit of fly fishing, fill a flask, make a sandwich and get in your motor, that's all it will cost you, no strings. It's a 2 acre lake, clear water, out in the sticks, stocked with Rainbows and Browns. Average weight of fish is 2 pound, ( & some big ones) any less the long neck crows tend to try and nick them :violent2:. There are 19 swims, 4 are tight, so a roll cast is needed, really good fun, and perhaps, if you are lucky, two for your tea. I am free most days except every other Sunday when I go clay shooting (October 12th 26th, so on and so forth). If you are short of gear I have lots. I am not too hot on the computer, a bit better at casting, so If you fancy it give me a P.M., (I think that means personal message :)) I will find it. Oh, lake is about 15 minutes from A12 off of the Stanway slip road, regards, Kiffy.

    What a gentleman! Id love to take you up on the offer but sadly my casting ability with the fly is appalling! I tried for a while a few years ago and got myself a nice rod with the intention of going after pike with it eventually......

    The offer I am leaving open, and if you fancy, I'll give you some casting lessons to boot. Another string to your bow Macdoog.
