Anyone remember the old wire paternosters? Do they still make them? Well the answer is yes. I found a lad who makes them up in his spare time.

Back in the 60s we used to have to cast with them as there was nowt else on the market at that time.

Does anyone still use them either for boat or pier fishing. I found some in my kit still in new condition (made of stainless) and got to wondering if I will ever find a use for them?
Cheers

Well I still do them K for boat fishing because in my opinion they help to stop the snood tangling around the sinker, etc., on the way down.

Cut them into little bits and use them for making leads Rab , in general wire booms are an abomination beach or boat and i will not use them with the possible exception of short wire booms to keep the snood near the bottom when after sole .
