    Slider floats

    A standard match rod will do, just cast smoothly and the float will sail out. I used to use an original Shimano Diaflash when I did a lot of slider fishing. Possibly one of the softest and finest float rods made.

    bolo rod advice wanted

    Kev You need to look at where you are fishing and what you need the rod to do. Over the years I've probably done more long rod fishing than most and the advice I would give you is that if you are going to be fishing venues primarily 10-14ft deep look at a 17ft rod but be aware you will need a...

    Are commercials killing traditional fishing skills

    This subject always amuses me but if more people took the time to learn, study and master all the methods on each of the respective types of venue they would have a better understanding of what they are talking about and be far more qualified to talk about it. It takes years to master each...

In the early 90's many anglers invested in Bolo's and...

    waggler help!

    The key to fishing a waggler is to ensure that the bait falls in a natural manner, and that you feed regularly to make the fish compete with the bait. To be honest most anglers will only use half a dozen floats and the most common are straight and insert wagglers. Straight wagglers are generally...
