    Whatever you feed, remember to make it not very much.

    The water is cold with even colder weather returning in most areas I think for the weekend. They're unlikely to take much feed.

  7. Re: Trotting on the Severn. Advice on tatics and equipment.

    Yes, to mend the line I trap the line on the spool (bailarm is open for me while trotting) and sort of lift/straighten it out behind float, as others do.

    As I say easier if you see it.

  8. Re: Trotting on the Severn. Advice on tatics and equipment.

    That's a decent rod to start with. Practice is the key as with a lot of things, if you keep at it you will succeed.

    It can be a great way to fish and once you get the hang of it, a skill for a...

    The first is fishing

    Re: Drennan 7 puddle chucker 10' feeder rod?

    It's an absolute cracking rod. I use it for commercials only though, for match carp.

    Light enough to hold, yes, no problem.

    Could see it being ok for chub, but it's over gunned for Roach.

    Yep

    I enjoy carp matches but could do with some variety. Pools without many carp are getting harder and harder to find !

    I was only a lad, but didn't do any good. Got in lots of tangles etc but just fished.

    Main thing is just enjoy it, can understand you may be apprehensive, but no need to be really, honestly.
