Worth Staying Up For

Well after refueling and watching Family Guy ( :D ) we got back to the mark at around 0100z~0200z. Although the tide was further out since our earlier visit, it was on it's way back in which gave us a chance to get a look at some of the previously covered ground to see a mostly rocky bottom with a l...

I'd be inclined to tie a swivel into the rig with the float on the mainline above. That's the way I fish using the same type of controller float, the trace from the swivel of lighter line to the lure for more natural movement I think the mainline right through thing was to simplify things as much a...

Andy do you have an online source for those copper crimps at all mate? I'll be honest, I've only ever seen the small dark or larger silver/metal coloured ones The crack-off I mentioned in my first post happened with a 20g Drennan controller float on 12-15lb mainline, however! , this line was preloa...

Cheers for that Dave, Are you saying the slim bore isn't so much work for just as little success? :) See I thought about the factor of missing or chopping worms with a slimmer one but in my opinion if I'm to learn from scratch then learning with either will have roughly the same learning curve if yo...

An old trusty one that works well cuckoo, much obliged for that :)

I like Power Gum stop knots (not on their own though) but the telephone wire twist around the line is a good method

Anymore folks?

Which Bait Pump??

Hi, I wonder if anyone can give me a wee bit advice regarding a new bait pump please?. I'm pretty much set on an Alvey, at first I thought the larger bore 2" one with everything I've looked at indicating the 2" is easier to learn with However, the 2" is meant to be much more work due to more suction...

Thanks andymad , Been meaning to buy a spool of fluocarbon line to fill the reel on my bass rod with ironically enough.....thought about braid but the fluocarbon is better for me I think but that's another post I never actually thought about the stealth factor to be honest, instead thinking more abo...

Nice one waggoner ;)

That's a very handy chart indeed mate!.....viewing the PDF at 100% does the same as printing it out in regard to getting the hook's proper sizes

very handy guide to hook sizes, clips, swivels, spoons etc

Anyone use Tronix 4-Way Beads?

Saw these 4-way beads at the w/end and again online and wondered if anyone has used them? I'm a firm believer in keeping things simple ( less to go wrong ) so if they can help simplify paternoster rigs & help avoid tangles I'd like to give them a try Thanks in advance for any help, advice or assista...

pipe-lagging foam here too but not just for lures & stray hooks

rigs I wind around it too to keep them tidy, easy to locate & clip on
