Hi Roy

Lovely fish mate. Love to know how you do it. I've never caught a bass over a pound and half.

Hi mick
I usual use a water knot mate. http://www.animatedknots.com/ I find this web site really useful. I'd make the droppers about 5" long just incase you want to change your flies a few times

Thanks
