Yep good fifty quids worth, I`m going to use the silicone method to attach the line. Thought about using superglue with a Dacron fly loop but
if I get it wrong with superglue there is no going back.
In my tackle bag I have a screw from an old landing net with a couple of inches of the frame turned into a semi circle. Come in handy over the
years for pulling branches down that I`ve got caught up on. Fishing the Beult a few years back and about eight feet out a piece of reed stuck
out from the surface and onto this had latched a bigger piece of reed which was nuisance with me keep nicking it with the hook, so decided to
lay down so I could just reach said annoying bit of weed with my branch thingy.
Managed to shift offending bit of weed but never got a bite for about twenty minutes in fact the swim never recovered properly, think what
damage waving a pole over that swim would have done. All this in your face fishing is all right on commercials but with naturals its a no no,
our granddads never said sit well back and keep still for the fun of it. I think it was good old Issac who said anglers should `study to be quiet`,
