    Re: Margin Pole Rig Question

    Tie a loop on the end of the rig. Pull back the little sleeve on the connector, insert the loop in the crook and push the sleeve back up. Now push the bottom sleeve up flush to the small sleeve.

    Re: Elastic

    I have Slik no 3/4 flouro light green in 3 of my match kits, it’s fine for my canal fishing. I wouldn’t say it’s any better than any other light elastics. Like all fine elastics it is prone to...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Fished the big pit in town yesterday, started at 9am. An hour later had my first bite on the method with maggots. Winding down I was in, a good fish. Lost it along with the feeder et al!
