    Re: Tips on Clipping up

    Well my mate bought the MAP reel (don't know the exact model) and I've played around with it quite a bit and I thought it was particularly good and it pretty much did everything it was supposed to...

    Re: Go to bait

    Red maggot, worm, caster and maybe a tin of sweetcorn in the bag. Once I've established what's in the water, then I might branch out into prawn, pellet etc.

    Re: Method feeder bait

    Rather than squashing the meat onto the method feeder, I would prepare all my ingredients in a liquidiser before I left the house. Bread to a fine crumb, sweetcorn to a near liquid, meat to a chosen...

    Re: Sleeper Rod

    I think it's easy to fling a sleeper rod together, chuck it out and let it sit while you concentrate on the rod in hand, as it were.

    If you spend half and hour concentrating on the sleeper rod...

  6. Re: what's the secret to mixing ground bait that will stick to the method feeder?

    I think most of the feed must stick to the method feeder. Many times after the feeder has settled for a minute or so, you see the tip straighten out, as the groundbait falls off the feeder and...

    That's a great idea chef. The best ideas always seem so bleedin' obvious after you know about them.....sigh!.....lol

    Re: Tying hair rigs

    By the way Acbruce, you say the fluorocarbon is to be used in conjunction with a feeder. What kind of rig is this and how long is this hooklength going to be??

    Re: Expensive Vs Cheep reels

    I honestly don't know what people do to their reels, I really don't.

    Re: Tying hair rigs

    Korum S3s or Kamasan Animals I'd suggest. Both really good hooks for making up knotless rigs and they'll both stop just about anything in it's tracks.

    I use them both for stopping tench in their...
  12. Re: what's the secret to mixing ground bait that will stick to the method feeder?

    I just use Robinson's Fruit juices for making up my method mixes. It adds a little color, flavour and it's sticky enough to act as a light binder, which breaks down quickly in the water.

    I think...

    I use neat Robinson's Blackcurrant for making up my method mixes. I just add it to brown crumb, fishmeal, feed pellets and whatever else might be going in.

    The juice adds a nice pinky/red colour,...

    Re: srawberry sweetcorn

    Strawberry will definitely work for Rainbows....they ain't that bright.

    I wouldn't waste my time with it for wild Brownies though, when maggots or worms will do far better.

    Re: Optimum line strength advice

    If there are lillies in the water, you might want to go a little heavier in order to stop tench charging off into the weeds, in which case you could go as heavy as 4-5lb. I'd suggest a good mainline...

    Re: advice on a stuck quiver tip

    That could create hairline fractures in the carbon, which can get bigger over time and evetually lead to a break. You shouldn't tap rods off anything.

    Re: Antitangle Feeder rig help needed

    I buy the John Roberts rig tubing and the leger beads which are slid onto 3" of tubing and glued in place.

    Cheaper than buy the things made up.

    Re: Most Successful Maggot Colour

    Never understood blue maggots. Absolute pishflaps IMO. I think I caught a pantyliner on blue maggots one day. Wasn't much of a fight so I don't target them.

    Does anyone like blue maggots??

    Re: Dreams to be realised

    I'm not much of a sit down angler since I broke my coccyx, so I usually stand, walk or lie on my mat. I do use a chair but it often ends up as a bank decoration.

    I've seen a crow fishing before and I once had a bucket of tadpoles out the back, which was later descimated by a magpie, which had no problem dunking it's head clear underwater.

    For river species, I'd say white, just for clarity more than anything else but for stillwater, I go for red maggots and casters.

    casters are very underrated IMO. I hardly ever see anyone using...
