    Re: Float making.

    I never use paint on my dodgers, just a couple of coats of hard as nails, black the tip off with marker pen.

    Difficult to find information regarding the dangers of Robin Red if indeed there are any.
    I'm beginning to wonder is it worth the bother. At the moment it smacks of homework. I thought I'd finished...

    Re: Float making.

    I could source some ebay float bits and make a few up. I prefer my own efforts.
    I'm sure the fish haven't noticed yet how rough my...

    Re: What is Traditional Angling?

    Traditional, you're having a laugh.
    No such thing. OK, you see some using old substandard out dated tackle. I know it's their choice, I could understand if they were using lines and floats/hooks of...

    The red stuff.

    OK for ever since I've fished commercials I've noticed additives on tackle shop shelves.
    I'm not saying they weren't there when I fished natural venues, mostly rivers or canals. It's more like I...

    Re: That Ebay bug strikes again

    Amazes me too, why would you not just buy new. I've never sold any tackle I've bought, I certainly haven't bought a second hand rod or reel. Mind you when I finish with a rod it's very near unusable....

    Re: Float making.

    Hey up.
    Excellent post with hand made floats, not the ebay kit specials that are nothing more than self assembled tripe.
    I await your next offering.

    Well the casters survived, they lasted pretty well in the pellet pump. A breath of fresh air every day to prevent them from dying and they were quite fresh looking.

    Re: Striking fish?

    Perhaps one of the worst terms for hooking fish the "strike"
    Generally it's no more than a firm lift.
    It all depends on distance and the amount of slack line to pick up. I see it has nothing more...

    Re: Worm hunting tips?

    I'm far from capable to catch my own, tackle shop has them in their fridge. Last I bought were three years ago, If I remember right they were 6 quid for 1/4 a kilo.

    Up every time for me. I don't fish with fixed wagglers, I prefer to strike the line through the float.

    Re: How did you get on?

    After my foray fishing for Skimmers, I fancied a day fishing for Roach.
    That all ended with a no go, my wife's arthritis flared up and fishing was put on the back burner for a time.

    If you are really finding it too difficult to tie a quick stop to an hair then use a band for hard baits, put the band on the bait and hook the band. Soft baits hook the bait.

    Nope never kissed a fish, snogged some ugly women in my younger days mind you. Something to do with booze and other things.
