    Re: Stick floats on winders

    Why make it with 9ft of line ??If the depth is 6ft why even make it with 6ft of line ? If you fish with a bulk (shot/olivette) which doesn't move (very much) then all you need is a couple of foot of...

    Re: Stick floats on winders

    Whitty - 0.14mm reel line is, for me, spot on for presentation, line peeling off the spool, casting etc etc. But a bit thin for lots of shot to be pinched on and moved around (i'd use 0.12mm reel...

    Re: Stick floats on winders

    Any knot above the rig is always going to be stronger than the hooklength join to rig line. So if my reel line is 0.14mm and rig line 0.16mm my hooklength is going to be below 0.14mm every time,...

    Re: Right,a moan about spade end hooks...

    Never had a problem tying 0.12 to a 20 - almost any type of 20. B911 included. Is the 0.12 really 0.12 ?

    Which way do you whip - up or down the shank ? By hand or hooktyer ?? They can be...

    Re: Your views on barbless or barbed hooks?

    For the venues I fish = microbarbed. Modern hooks with barbs (in the main) are so much better, smaller, neater than barbed hooks of old. Occasionally I will pinch the barb down when I need to. I'll...

    Re: The term "bumping fish"

    Fishing for small roach, say 2oz - 4oz - up in the water. It's those days when they are moving around a lot and maybe not 'having it' and you get lots of bites you miss no matter what depth and how...

    Re: The term "bumping fish"

    You're not going mad. I fish braid on the waggler - sometimes I have to as it's the best line for the job. And I have to use a soft/mellow rod. It's by far the best combination.

    Re: The term "bumping fish"

    i'm surprised that the Super Spades don't create any issue as they have a slightly inturned 'beak' point. I'd have thought a straight point would bump less.

    Re: The term "bumping fish"

    I agree in part. Sometimes no matter what you do or what you use results in too many 'bumped' fish Especially roach & dace (for me). For whatever reason the fish just aren't 'having it'.

    But I...

    Never on a loop knot but I do on more complicated knots simply to make pulling them up tight easier.

    Re: Line for trotting

    I would have thought Supplex to be too soft & flexible. I actually prefer something a little stiffer to help manage the line and harder so I can move shot frequently without worrying so much.

    Re: A tip for pole and whip users.

    On a whip where your hand stays in one place a grip is or can be useful. But for a long pole it is a definite no no.

    Nope. Even compacted gravel. Put a Powerdrive bankstick into the ground first and then the brolly pole into that.

    Tinned (any precooked & branded type) hemp - for me - is only useful when fed via a pole cup and 'dumped' in or when added to groundbait. It tends to be small, inconsistent, over-cooked for the hook...

    Traverse X Feeder rods were very good in the 80's. The Royal Westminster and latterly Traverse X poles were also popular back then.

    Ultimately man will outgrow the planet and disappear up its own rectum. It's just a matter of when.

    But the planet will go on albeit perhaps radically changed.
