No. You can catch small fish in the margins too.

And the margin is as far out as you relatively short pole will allow. Not just down he side as some seem to think.

Thinking about perhaps investing in one for Xmas, nothing to expensive or fancy.

Had a few in the past, but, always had them set up for heavy elastics and for targeting Carp down the edges.

I was thinking No6 and No10 elastic for a varied approach.

Steph quite a few margin poles come with a lighter top 3 as well as a heavy one for carp.

The Fox one and the Map one i had never came with top 3's they were both equipped with top 2 kits.
Thanks for the head up, i'll investigate further. By the time i've cut a top 3 back it will be as much like a top 2 anyway.

Thinking i might just get a cheap Middy one, i can get them for about £60 new, just got to try and do as much digging around about them as i can first.

Wish i'd kept my original stuff now, but hey ho.

Personally I wouldn't use a margin pole for small fish on the inside preferring a line-to-hand whip as it is much lighter, is far quicker as you don't need to ship back and remove the top 2 or 3 and you'd get more enjoyment out of even quite small fish on the whip whereas on the margin pole you'd hardly know they were there.

My margin pole is a Drennan which came with a spare top 3 if I remember correctly, and while nowhere near the most expensive more than copes with even medium sized Carp on the inside line.
