    Re: One for the rod detectives

    Both the sidewinder and polaris floats were an invention of Terry Smith a Sheffield rod builder. I could never get on with the polaris float but still have a sidewinder.

    Re: Does anyone buy fishing tackle from Ebay ?

    I'm not a fan of ebay, I failed with a few a few rods I wanted to sell. Seems I was tormented with time wasters. I took the rods off, they were a pain.

    Re: optimum hook size for a canal ?

    I wouldn't bother too much about bigger fish, the time to worry about them is if you hook one. If they're where you fish you certainly will at some time. It's surprising what you can land with light...

    Re: "Hinged" floats

    Hinged floats, you keep jogging my memory Mark.

    You're dead right Steve, nothing much has changed. Magazines tell us it's a new technique when they release their latest thing, in truth it's just an old technique re jigged.
