I think that describes the lift method Chris.

Stret pegging is a combination of float ledgering and laying on that ensures the bait is always accuratly placed and lies perfectly static on the bottom. A short float fixed top and bottom and set considerably deeper than the swim depth so the current forms a bow in the line between float and the bottom shots. This relieves the pressure on the float enabling it to lie flat and the bait to remain static with just a single BB, AA or swan shot (depending on current force) pinched on the line 5 to 10 inches from the hook. When the flow is to fast for a single shot to hold bottom then construct a mini ledger using a small ring plus 1 inch or so of thik line to which a swan shot or two are added.

That's out of one of John Wilsons many books. It seems people know different styles of fishing by different names which does seem to cause confusion to many of us.

Thanks again Tigger. As you say, there are so many conflicting descriptions of the various methods to be found and I've just had it confirmed by Graham M that your description is indeed correct. I really appreciate being put right.

...how does it go? A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

I've just been reading about this method for pike in the current IYCF - John Watson talks about using it on the Norfolk Broads and rivers.

He uses an inline, sliding float set over-depth and adjusts this amount until the float sits half cocked at a 45 degree angle.

Bites generally lift then sink the float as the pike picks the bait up then swims off with it, he recommends striking after the lift as the float begins to disappear.

I can't see it working on bigger fast-flowing rivers like the Severn or Trent but I reckon it'll work brilliantly on parts of the Derwent this winter.

Cakey, I don't see what he says is wrong. Just that in the above quote he doesn't mention that the bait only remains stationary until you make it move by lifting the rod. Perhaps he hasn't been quoted in full.

That's it, if it was left stationary then it would be laying on and to fish laying on style you need to be fishing just off the end of your rod or pretty near by to do it correctly.
