    It's the hooked Lower jaw that older trout develop.

    Re: How did you get on?

    It must be because I actually have something that needs doing, for a change. Third day in a row out fishing. This time, due to it being heavy going in previous days, I stuck to a familiar stomping...

    Re: Self hooking rigs ?

    Not entirely. More effective than a plain hook buried in a bait, but few would consider a hair rig to be a particularly effective self hooking method unless used in conjunction with something else...

    Yes, a chap I know paid that, and more, by the time the top of the range integrated fish finder/GPS guidance system was added.

    Re: Self hooking rigs ?

    It's just a method of fishing a lead set up to dislodge easily if a fish picks up the bait. The lead moving tends to result in self hooking and a drop back indication at the tip. How exactly the rig...

    Re: How did you get on?

    Today I went to a stretch of river that I was battering hundreds of dace, chublets, grayling, roach and perch out of in late summer/early autumn. Having never fished it in winter, I had little idea...

    Re: Self hooking rigs ?

    Unless there is absolutely zero resistance, there's some level of self hooking in every rig. The efficiency of the self hooking effect tends to depend on weight when legering and resistance through...

    Re: How did you get on?

    I took a short trip to a new (to me) stretch of river. Only having a few hours to play with meant I didn't want to walk too far. Being a little stiff from two consecutive days of beating didn't help....

    Re: One for the rod detectives

    Such is my preference for float fishing, I don't recall the last time I used a quivertip. However, I know that it's more recent than the last time I used a swingtip.

    Re: One for the rod detectives

    I would doubt it. There was a period of time that "leger" was considered to be the correct way to spell the fishing term. As it was pretty much just a made up fishing word, spill chuckers autocorrect...

    Re: How did you get on?

    I can't fish for the next two days, so I had to make the most of today. As I had the shortened rod to try, I had to give the beck its first go in a couple of years. I don't fish it often as It's fly...

    Re: Telescopic poles and rods

    Though I'm aware that it's born out of prejudice, I'd avoid a telescopic, or put in, rod or pole like the plague.

    For me, rods should have either be overslide or spigot jointed. Put in rod joints...

    It isn't me that's particularly concerned. However, even plastic, or the graphite composite that I believe it is, is not particularly desirable on painted or anodized reel feet. Not too many reels...

    Re: Why didn’t I think of this before!

    Not that model, but there are various different Daiwa models (Tournaments, Airity, Air AGS etc) that have featured the Tournament reel seat. I like them well enough when used with a fixed spool reel....
  20. Re: Recommendations for a 13ft stick float rod for roach fishing.

    I think it's a screw up seat, so I doubt it'll be for me. However, I believe that the Silverlites are purely tip rods, so I won't be finding out for myself any time soon.

    The head rotates on the threaded brass insert. Locking nuts and O rings make no difference at all. You'd still have to grip the actual head with pliers or molegrips to tighten or loosen them. The...

    No need for extra length as a counterbalance on a short rod. It's just a smidge longer than my forearm.
