    Re: Rod tip breakage

    Under 'virtually no pressure' ??? I would never swing a 5oz fish on a light float rod. It needs netting. If that fish is STILL and NOT moving about, NOT shaking its head etc and can be 'skimmed'...

    Re: Line strength and diameter

    I do take notice of what the line is supposed to be. I stick with one range when having & using a selection of lower diameter (say 0.07mm - 0.18mm) hooklength material. That way I 'know' where I am...

    Re: Clever New Hooklength System

    Why is that a problem ? Do you tie 10 at a time ? Use up every hook before tying another 10 ? Surely on a popular hook you'd tie another batch of 'x' qty if there were only 2 or 3 left - just in case...

    Re: River waggler advice

    I'd do exactly the opposite to keep the bow less significant. If the float starts in front of you or even above (which you couldn't cast to in a match anyway) the bow will just get bigger & bigger &...

    Re: Quick-change connection?

    Correct. And...............the eye shape of a swivel makes a noticeable difference. A Diamond eye pinches the line whereas a round eye doesn't.

    Bigger umbrella ?? Don't fit the umbrella to the chair as that is restrictive. Stick the umbrella into the ground exactly where and how high you want it.

    Re: Line Twist

    It doesn't seem to matter what reel and how cheap or how expensive it is. Fixed spool reels impart some twist when winding in and the reverse happens when you cast out. I've had it with Shimano's...

    Re: Floats for shy biting fish.

    What about................Combo Tips ? The long thin ones must be about 3". Fit them straight into a silicone adaptor and simply use as a straight (but very thin and light) waggler.

    Re: Only gone & snapped my Acolyte Plus ...

    I would think in 18 months you must have used it a few times (even 1 time per month is 18) and caught fish on it. So the tip has been bent umpteen times with no problems. So very, very unlikely to be...

    Re: Drennan Floater loops

    Probably 30 years old. For floater fishing using a Sub-Float and feeding the float to the surface. Hence the large Pear shaped loop to allow the line to run through and not get clogged by weed etc

    There could be a number of different reasons why things are discontinued but I bet the main reason is...............the product didn't sell well enough to make it worthwhile.

    Re: Drennan Series 7 Float Reel Line Lay

    Those spools all look fine to me.

    It might be due to 0.18mm in one brand not being 0.18mm in another. A slight increase in thickness and it will fill the spool a little more. Also if you load with...
