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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Nearly didn't go fishing today but glad I did, had session of catching stonking rudd
    that biggest went 1lb 2oz and had a dozen or more between half pound and three quarters.

    Method was fishing micro carp style with 1.25 tc rods and 4000 Shimano bait runners
    and helicopter rigs.

    The bait was red maggot and 55 grm GURU maggot feeder on one rod and the other had a GURU groundbait feeder. The groundbait was a home made concoction black treacle and bannana flavour with sweetcorn and a selection of pellet mixed through..

    I was getting bite after bite and was also catching quality roach to similar weights,
    seeing a one pound plus rudd is something special, these fish are stunning,
    the best thing is these fish are not fished for in the water it's all carp fishing.
    One guy last year showed me a picture of a three pounder this was caught on a 12mm pink boile
    danban, the dog, Nubble and 1 other person like this.

    Fantastic Farty.
    My sister used to have pool stuffed with 'em but they only went to about 10 oz at best.
    A 1lb + Rudd is a lovely looking fish. 3lb is unbelievable :eek:

    Gorgeous fish is a Rudd. I'm lucky as my syndicate water has some massive Rudd in it. I had a three pounder last year. This year one of the lads had a 4 1/2lb monster which was all over social media. They are true Rudd and not hybrids as there are no bream, or roach for that matter, in the lake. Although it's a carp syndicate, some lads join just to target the Rudd. I'm confident there is a British record in there, judging by what I have seen myself.
