Hi, I usualy have 4 or 5 turns of shockleader on my reel and enough leader to almost reach down to my reel from the end of the rod and have had no problems

As for the knot here is a youtube video showing how to tie one

Hope this is of some help :)

Hi Chaps

Having recently got my gate key I have been told this key fits more than one gate? could any of you tell me what other gate the key fits, a google earth placemark or link would be great marking the gates :) as the licence that came with my key did not have much info about this

Thanks

I tried bait digging myself many years ago and found it was very hard work for a few worms, I come to the conclusion that I would leave it to the pro's to do the hard work and I would concentrate on enjoying the fishing lol

Pro bait diggers have my utmost respect
