    Sorry...its some old stuff from years ago...always thought it would come in useful one day.

    Thanks Dave...I was wondering too but I'm not going to fall out over it.

    I do not do poles...neither do I do carp, pike, brussell sprouts, liver, Arsenal, bivvies,X- Factor,Elvis,or anything to do with Disney. I dont always fish a float and a centrepin but I will whenever I can because I like it and its not illegal.

    That's it really. So far as fishing is concerned I have never had the slightest need to compete....I fish for my pleasure and mine alone.

    S-kippy,did you try to light shot down the line,8's or less,holding back fairly hard.....feed,cast ,then hold back,it often works,what would people do without 11m+ of carbon,maybe learn to fish again?

    Graham...I'm sure that was intended to be tongue in cheek but its fallen a bit flat here after certain earlier comments.

    What started as [I thought] a reasonable question seems to have turned into lets-have-a-pop -at -Skippy- who -can't- be -a -proper- angler because- he -doesn't- own -a -pole -and-fly-fishes. How's that work then ?

    I choose not to use a pole. End of. The only thing likely to make me grumpy is people who question my personal preference/choice when frankly its none of their business. I find it rather patronising to be perfectly honest.Dear God what did I say that makes everyone suddenly think I only ever use a greenheart rod with a whalebone tip.

    Thank you all for your advice.Most of it was useful and I have a few things to try when next the myriad hordes of Windsor dace and I do battle.

    But I will NOT be fishing a bloody pole and neither will I lose a moments sleep if you are on the next peg fishing 6 metres to hand and spanking the arse off me.

    Yes I did try that with the usual results...enough fish to make me think I've cracked it and then back to normal. Maybe I should have just altered everything every 3rd chuck to confuse the little sods. The biggest problem [I think] is that there are just so many fish they are charging about like maniacs. I reckon I could have put a ton of hemp in and still not filled them up. At least I wasn't on caster...that would have been an expensive morning !

    Another option is to find out how high they are coming up in the water and attack them there,i usually find waggler better on the seed,but its all down to preference.

    Skippy it was meant in a lighthearted way and I trust it was taken as such.

    skippy

    does it have to be hemp and tares? the reason I ask is cos a mate of mine just got back from a boating holiday on the thames... he wasn't going to be fishing seriously and so could only pick up some supermarket bait... and was then really surprised to start catching really good quality roach on sweetcorn. Just waggler fishing a foot off bottom (though most of the fish came on the drop)... nothing under 10oz or so, but nothing over a pound. Better than inch long chublets!!
