    Devastating! Who would have believed it.

    Almost as revolutionary as that new method for catching barbel discovered by some well known angler, I was told about, UPSTREAM LEGERING!

    A bit harsh, dontcha fink?
    Journo asks successful angler to spill the beans, angler has the decency to do so, snapper takes a fine shot; well done to all.
    So why the sarcasm? Yes, all the bits are easily available, but so are lots of others; it's the reasoning behind which bits were selected that made it a good article. Are y'all disappointed that there was no hand-braided graphene or mermaid's hair involved?
    My only grumble is that they didn't disclose whether the buoyant corn went next to the hook, which might give an unstable waft, or at the hair's end, which would be very stable - mere conjecture on my part, but being an idle git, if someone else has made the experiment....

    Yes, but there's also a lot of twaddle in there too. Pear shaped leads giving better hooking, bucking the trend of coated braid - what trend? The braid picture looks either coated or naturally stiff to me.

    Ok it's easy to laugh and there are some good ideas in there, but twaddle there is in abundance!

    Oh and the artificial corn should always be furthest away from the hook. If it's put closest to the hook the hook doesn't turn properly in the fishes mouth.

    It must be absolutely wonderful to know everything, I honour you all.

    Reading the article I learned five things I hadn't known before. Good article then.

    As someone who readily admits to buying IYCF, I thought it was an informative piece and taught me something new
