I saw Barry Bush's pole rigs set up for fishing the pellet up in the water and he had what looked like a leger stop instead of a float, Has anyone any idea what it was I was going to ask him but when I packed up and went to ask him he had gone after picking his winnings of course.

Cheers

David

it seems as though it is another method to fish the so called monkey method - as much as it is malinged it works and works well, very well

its fishing shallow with no float just a 12 inch piece of line with a hook and banded pellet - bites indicated by elstic coming out of your pole - caught loads of fish on it just find it boring, fire pellets regualrly at your pole and tap the water with your pole tip making a lot of noise you will often get takes when you are tapping

If I understand right it's almost like fishing the floating pole but without the pole floating Just a length of line and a hook at the end! Works very well at many places with various baits up in the water.

thats right - they use it a lot at manor farm, evesham, a mate of mine won a match on it when others were struglling to control a proper float in the strong wind. I wouldnt use it pleasure fishing as i dont find it a pleasure but alls fair in match fishing unless its is banned. I think it is frowned on by many but then I remember people saying the same about the feeder, yep I am that old

Cheers Chris so the leger stop on his line was actually... a leger stop!!!! so thats how you could pass the rule of every rig must have a float on? love it or hate it this style of fishing is very effective if fished correctly. Off to Border Match lake sat for a match anyone know how its fishing??
Cheers

yes, borders - there was an article in pole fishing with one guy doing this and the other guy fishing a proper float shallow - on the day the float won - they were referring to the monkey as the bungee - so perhaps it is only down here it is aclled the monkey

The monkey is taking Blundells apart at the moment and has accounted for the majority of wins so far this season and it looks like I had better start practicing the monkey to compete.

Thanks for your help Chris

Might sound like a stupid question... but... if you're fishing with no float up in the water and you're 'flicking' the end of your pole about is the hook bait not going to be 'jumping' all over the place?

Or have I missed something?

Cheers fellas.

Having the bait moving around is the attraction, I had a duck having a go at my pellet waggler on sunday, it didn't matter as the duck was lifting the pellet up and down and the carp would have it.

As much as people say it is unskillful and as I say, I like watching a float, years ago before poles we used to fish a local pool where we knew that we were missing bites high in the water from big rudd. We started using the poly ball on a waggler rig and for a while it worked realy well until the venue changed. If it is taking borders apart then it has to be considered seriously. I think where it works well as there is no resistance in the rig and it can be fished very high in the water

I have fished this method and it can be very productive, but the fishery owner put a new slant on it for me, between the stonfo and hook length he had a short piece of line then around a foot of pole elastic which acted as a float and took some shock from the first take (I assume)if a large Ide or a carp took the maggot or pellet he was using as bait.

Feeding little and often on this method was bringing the carp up as well as putting the Ide into competition for the bait.

The length of elastic also acted as a useful bite indicator showing the very first contact between fish and bait.

Steve H

the idea of the monkey or whatever it is called depending on where you live is that the short rig acts as a bolt rig against the pole tip, the rig you described may not be as a direct in providing the bolt effect - anyway who cares if it works, it works

So the 'bouncing' hook bait attracts the fish as well as the pole tapping the surface of the water (simulating feed)?
