Thread: Bottle trick

  1. #1


    I saw in carpology a trick Tel used to get baits in otherwise un castable places i.e. under overhanging trees in the margin.

    It didnt explain it fully just wondered if any of you guys knew the details?

    It would be really helpful on the water im on at the min.

    you cut the bottom of a plastic bottle ,you load it up with rig and lead,put in some freebies if in water and float under tree etc when bottle is where you want it tug line and bottle tilts and dumps its contents.
    can be used to fish at extreme range also (if wind is right)

    No i think he casts out the bottle with the rig in it.
    I think i have the general idea just wanted to check.
    A 16m pole wouldnt get anywhare i need to!

    The one i saw he was using a bottle that goes in a bike clip and kept reusing it i have seen the one your talking about though cakey.

    Basicly i need to fish in the margins too my left about 60 yards away under an overhanging tree problem is there is a tree that jets out from the left of the swim meaning only side casting is possible thing is the trees branches are only 2 feet from the surface of the water.

    A difficult cast if ever i saw one.

    you can drill a hole near the the top of the bottle (which would be the bottom if it was the right way up)then place every thing in and pva the swivel to the hole ...........this allows you to cast it out but watch your rod tip.......dont break
