    Re: Fishing off the bottom?

    Correction fluid sounds like a good idea for the pole.

    Re: Fishing off the bottom?

    What is a good way to mark the depth on the rod? I was thinking of an elastic band? Don't want to use any kind of permanent marker.

    That is a very good point actually. Hoping to take on some carp and bream next week.

    Re: Fishing off the bottom?

    When fishing on the bottom, should my bait be just touching, or laid on over depth?

    Surely just touching for bottom feeders? In regards to pole and waggler, of course - not ledgering haha

    Fishing off the bottom?

    As in the bait just sitting there suspended in midwater. I normally fish on the bottom, or on the drop with plenty of recasting.

    Would the bait just suspended mid-water not look very unnatural...

    Re: Pulla bung with solid elastics?

    Most of the fish I target with the pole will be below 6lb, though I just need that heavy elastic for fishing close to snags.

    Re: Pulla bung with solid elastics?

    Accidentally caught a 14lb fish on a 4-6 hollow. Had to follow it around the swim for about 15 mins with the pole at full length - otherwise the elastic would have bottomed out.
    Also had a slightly...

    Re: I feel like crying!

    Tackle seems a bit overkill. Matching tackle to the water and fish is everything.

    I recently saw a guy fishing about 3 foot over depth with this giant round green float on the end of what looked...

    Re: Pulla bung with solid elastics?

    I am actually going to fit my last top kit with an 18-20 middy solid for direct snag/margin fishing.
    Can't see the need for a pulla bung for this type of strong elastic.

    My margin is an old...

    Pulla bung with solid elastics?

    Hi all,
    So I'm going to fit my last remaining top kit with some middy solid 14-16 elastic. I find I loose a touch of control with the 10-12 when fishing near snags - even for small carp and slab...

    Re: Cheap groudnbait for silverfish

    I think I have maybe put too much emphasis on using groundbait. Growing up, I always just loose fed over the top of my float with sweet corn or pellets and caught plenty.

    Runnings v semi-fixed. Popularity

    I've always used a free running lead when carp fishing. I tend to use a heavy 3 inch gripper lead and semi-slack lines.
    In terms of popularity, what would you say is the most popular lead set-up?...

    Yes, it would be far cheaper to join a club. Need to start fishing the canal system more. Problem is, there are just terrible, bleak stretches near me.

    Re: Cheap groudnbait for silverfish

    I have always bought ground bait, as opposed to making it. I fish around 3 times a week.

    Day ticket, plus all my bait, is around £11. I find I can easily go through a KG of groundbait a session. ...

    Has anyone ever thought of blending up a few prawns and adding them to ground bait?
