Thanks S.O. The rod is a Chapman’s Hunter. At 12 feet with hollow built butt and middle but solid tip, it’s tricky to balance. I’ve yet to find a contemporary pin it seems comfortable with, so I use a heavier fixed spool. Set up handles a wonderful range of still water situations though.Stour Otter wrote: ↑Tue May 29, 2018 2:48 pmLike the rod and reel combo Duckett. I use 8 & 11mm punches on a size 8 or 10 hook with the shotting very low a few inches from the hook when float/ledgered. This will get the bait down to the bottom fast, giving less time for the small fry to attack it, when fishing over the area ground baited with "Bixies" or "Weetabix".
This is the place to discuss the fishing baits.
