    Re: Elastic

    I never used to use elastic pullers, I always managed before health issues. For me, I always would I opt for lighter elastics, so long as you don't have too much pole in the air until the fish is...

    Re: Elastic

    I've not noticed that SLIK wares any quicker than other brands the only thing noticeable are the super stretchy softness of SLIK.
    I use it in all my kits from 4-6 right up to 14-16, I don't think...

    Re: Connecting a rig to a whip

    I prefer the double silicon way of attaching my rig, it's the way I've always connected to the flick tip it's never come off so I'll stick with it.

    Re: Keeping maggots in fridge ???

    Get them in the freezer, they look fresh enough even though dead. they'll be good for feed and hook baits.
    I doubt fish know if they're dead or not.

    Re: Keeping maggots in fridge ???

    Casters and maggots can last for ages in a pellet pump, I used to use the bag method that GT56 mentioned. I didn't know Jan Porter recommended the idea though, I was told by a chap who worked in a...

    Re: Elastic

    Hybrids, in general, are to my mind better than hollows or solids. First time I saw SLIK on the shelf in the shop I was more than a little sceptical, the shop owner assured me how good it was. I...

    Re: Progold monofilament

    Now I use bank sticks to get my measure. Make your cast, measure it on the bank sticks and away you go.
    You still have to flick the line from behind the clip. It's easy to get back to your mark,...
  11. Re: How to pole fish when the fish are up in the water

    I rarely fish pellet up in the water with my pole. they attract carp not really what I want. Had I still fished matches that would be a different matter. I will say 4 mm pellets are a better feed...

    There's a strange gadget in tackle shops called a pellet wetter, put your pellets in soak then remove.
    Does that make my pellet wetter obsolete? My pellet wetter was my landing net :doh:What do I do...

  17. Re: Plumbing up when you have a bait band hair rig

    I totally agree with Mark, bream are notoriously skittish when on the feed. Feeding over their heads certainly kills the swim for a while.
    Losing a fish in the swim can and does disturb skimmers in...

    My Maver cleaner came second hand there's no way the finest can fit through a No1, maybe I was goosed and there's a piece missing.
    Either way, it's not usable for me.
