    Could anyone recommend a decent varnish . I use satin clear exterior varnish at the moment but would like to know what else others use.

    Thanks

    Re: Drop shotting - am I missing something?

    if you keep the line in the crook of your finger you'll feel the bites , though to be fair you'ii feel the bites through your rod . The bites will usually be pretty sharp.

    Try having a go with a worm hooked on , it will give you confidence , perch just can't resist worms.
