Welcome and feel free to ask away... somebody clever will answer I'm sure :D

Ask away if your there Baj. I'll be pumping a few lug 2hrs before at Red rocks.
Sea fishermen are born honest. But they soon get over it.

Thanks Gents. I am planning to get to this one, so just to make sure I turn up with the right kit, is the following OK? Hooks - 1's or 2's on 15lb snoods, rigs- 2 hook flappers or bomber, 6oz leads. Bear in mind my non-salty history, so I use fixed spool! How far a cast is needed at Caldy? ta again, Brian

Do you have to notify Liverpool air traffic control when you are casting Steve :D All my casts in an average year don't add up to 300yds!
Ah, another zep fan I presume? Dazed and confused (live) on in the car this morning, great way to start the day. brian

Brian, you might be better off with 20lb snoods as something as light as 15lb can soon get tangled, and would not have much abrasion resistance. :)

You`ll get pushed up on to the rocks though there is a path running along the top which will be ok for a base camp ;)
