    Re: Method feeder tips

    Rather than soaking micros based on time it’s far easier to do based on volume.

    Mix 2 parts micros to 1 part Groundbait (I use match method mix), dry.

    Then add 2 parts water, mix well, leave...

    Re: Fishing seat/chairs.

    Having looked on eBay there’s quite a bit of variation in price, down I think to the fact that they have to be collected as postage is difficult.

    I think a fair price would be around £75 for the...

    Re: Returning fisher

    Secondly the rod may be a touch heavy in the tip and bumping fish consequently.

    Try the hook first though, new hooks are cheaper than new rods!

    Tight lines my friend, glad you’re enjoying it. ...

    Re: Returning fisher

    There are a lot of factors but the main one in my opinion is the pattern of hook you use.

    A ‘circle’ pattern hook such as guru QM1 (other brands do similar) will get you more fish in the net when...

    Re: Pre-tied hook links.

    Well I have no reason to dis-believe guru that they are tied by hand. And somebody therefore is tying them.

    I very much doubt whoever it is will be in a Western economy.

    That doesn’t...
  9. Re: Groundbait Recipes for Method Feeder??

    Yes that’s exactly right. Needs about 20 mins to soak up. If raining or warm, keep it covered.

    A pellet on the band is fine with nothing on the actual hook. Size 16 is a good starting point. I...

    Re: Float length

    Remember the old adage floats are made to catch anglers not fish.

    For a canal whip set up I’d be looking for wagglers with a very fine tip, or a pole float. You don’t need anything bigger or...

    Re: Float length

    No need to apologise as we’re happy to help!

    The 2 smaller floats are probably too light light for fishing a whip as you need a bit of weight to control the float.

    Many years since I whip...

    Re: Best all rounder 8lb mono ?

    The heaviest reel line I use is 6lb. For value the Daiwa sensor bulk spools take some beating. Not had a problem using it.

    That said if cost was not a factor Maver stone river is superb line.

    Re: Float length

    The floats you have that are 0.2 and 0.25g sound like pole floats and are not really suitable for fishing with rod and reel if that’s what you’re doing? If yes the wagglers are better for this.
