    Bread is definitely an underrated carp bait. As Jerry says finding them in winter is critical. Whether or not the bread would stay on long enough is another matter.

    I must say as a clumsy, slap dash sort of bloke I just cannot comprehend the skill and care that goes into the floats I have seen pictured.

    Re: Using tackle how you like.

    That is something I do quite regularly. A pole float fished under a long rod preferably with a centre pin is a great way to tackle deeper water close in. Good for perch tench and carp.

    Using tackle how you like.

    Rayners post in the pole or whip thread reminded me of an angler I saw hemp fishing years ago. He was certainly using tackle differently and how he like to.

    As we all know bites on hemp can be...

    Re: Your earliest fishing memory

    It doesn't quite qualify as angling but in a park in Ilford Essex( now London) at the age of about 3 or 4 I watched entranced as the big boys with nets catch sticklebacks from a stream.

    Re: Difference between a Pole and a Whip

    I have always thought whips without elastic but relying on a very light bendy tip are for catching quickly lots of small fish when bites are easy and speed is the requirement. The supple tip provided...

    As a youngster the only float I owned was similar to a perch bobber. We used to call them grayling floats, never having any idea what a grayling looked like. I had no notion as to sensitivity issues...

    Judging by the pong of the thick black silt on a lake bed which the fish root about in, I doubt they find old pellets unpleasant.
