    An answer to the birds nest problem is don't remove them.


    Cast as far as you can first chuck - birds nest. Ignore it, wind in.

    Next, cast as far as birds nest will allow. Further birds nest. Ignore it, wind in.

    Repaeat until you are casting all of 3 feet. Pack up, go home.

    Good days you might get as many as half a dozen casts on a trip.

    There was me thinking,Kevin will have the answers and,I was right.
    Just as I thought i'd got the hang of it,it turned around and bit my bum.
    Having fiddled with it in the backgarden for a while, I became aware of the importance of a good pair of scissors.What I didn't do though was take a 1000 yard spool with me.
    Next time I will.
    So,after the third nest of rookery proportions,it was back in the bag and the trusty fixed spool was there to save my day.
    I'm not going to let the bloody thing get to me, and anyway,i've still got a nice few prize spools of Mr Chilton's line to go through yet!

    The multiplyer was designed by the Devil - I cast you out( or at least try to) you creation of satan!

    whats up with you all,

    tight grip on the spool,
    nice smooth cast,
    release the spool,
    feel for line lift with your thumb and slow the spool if needed,
    stop it when it hits the water.
    job done.

    now try it on a beach casting into a force 8 wind.

    That's right Alan, What's up with them all. I've used a multiplier for over 40 years and for some sorts of fishing it's superior to any other reel.

    I've never had a birds nest in over 30 years from these reels and I used to chuck well over 100 yards with them from the shore.

    It has to be the right reel for the job!

    I've cast 8oz over 100 yards easily, on the beach.
    But the same reel won't cast a lure 30 yards on a river!

    Good point Fred

    My Big(proper sea angler)brother always said

    'First rule when using a multiplier is, always take a fixed spool with you as well!'

    "I've never had a birds nest in over 30 years from these reels"

    Your nose has grown so long Ron, it came through the screen and poked my eye out!

    I don't believe you.

    Despite what I said, I'm not a bad caster with a multiplier and have three, 2 Abus and a cheapo Spider, which is quite good in fact. Get one with Magnetic overrun controller and they're ok.

    However, I do get birds nests. Everyone does and I used a Mitchell 600AP to cast over 120yards at Llanfairfechan regularly.
