    Re: rigs explained and recommended

    Steve

    I don't really use ready made rigs but I'd say you don't need to go to light , main line around 4 or 5 lb and 3 to 4 lb hook links . Floats between 0.5 g and 1.0 g , hooks between 14 to 18...

    Re: rigs explained and recommended

    Steve, the type of rigs you need depends very much on where you are fishing and what you hope/expect to catch. Could you provide a bit more detail please.

    Re: Drennan Specialist vs Greys Prodigy PB

    I'd go for the Drennan , I have had a 1.25 version for more years than I can remember and always enjoyed using it . I think in previous years Greys would be better rods , I have 1.5 Barbel Prodigy...

    Mussels used to be a really good bait for tench on a local farm pool bur eventually the little perch cottoned on to them . I'd say they only seem to work on a few waters but I suppose with most...

    I'd say 12 lb is a little heavy myself for a quiver rod , unless your fishing a snag pit 8 lb would be a better balance . Your using a decent rod and will have a good drag on your reel so you should...
