    The Speedia arbours were designed by a Luderick angler in Australia, Matt McHugh, who published his work on "Thingiverse" (I think) and therefore deserves beatification.

    Re: Striking fish?

    My most spectacular tangles have been caused by striking upwards and bumping a fish, so I try to strike sideways if possible. I usually use sliders, even in shallow water, because the strike is...

    Re: What is Traditional Angling?

    For me, there are several sorts of traditional fishing. One is using ancient tackle (or modern replicas) to fish ancient methods and see if they still work; another is using the kit I could have had...

    Re: Floats for shy biting fish.

    Book-learning alert - I don't have any crucians to fish for, AFAIK.
