Is it possible? Basically, looking for a rig that would work for bream, roach, tench and perch. Something that is very easy to set up and gives a good indication of bites. Is it possible to use some sort of alarm or swinging indicator? Thanks in advance

I like to take the minimum of gear and try to get away with taking just one rod, and yes, it is possible to ledger with a match rod, so long as you are using a very light lead, and the rod is fairly robust (i.e. not one of the ultra light spliced tip ones used for trotting). I use either small bullets or bombs, or a link ledger made up with two or three SSG shot

On still waters, a butt indicator, or a bog standard bobbin are fine. On the rivers just keep a tight line and watch the rod top.

Don't forget touch ledgering either. Just keep a tght line, point the rod at the water and feel for bites with teh tip of your forefinger.

Get a sindwinder, a clip on tip that fastens on near the butt and is not effected by windy conditions.

gibby, thanks so much for this info. Is there anywhere you know where I can see examples of this set up, I especially like the idea of a butt indicator a bobbin. Cheers

You can use loads of different things for bobbins, the old style washing up bottle tops are my favourite but you can't get them anymore (and I'm not parting with mine) Mould a piece of bread into dough and fold over the line between the eyes, or a folded piece of card, bent stick/grass, push a bit of wire into a cork and hook it on the line etc.

basicly anything that will hold the line down with a little weight, and indicate the bite... I just use a bit of stick with a bend on it that will attach to the line... No cost

A simple Link Leger-fold a piece of line,a couple of inches long,over your main line and squeeze on 2 or 3 large shot.Tie a loop on the end of your main line to attatch your hook length.Use a leger stop above this loop (or another shot)to act as a stop.
A simple old fashioned method that is still as effective today as it ever was.

I also like the look of the rig where there is a shot that is cushioned by a rubber ball and has a swivel tied to it. That one looks simple but is it effective?
