i fish with light bobbins so that i can see the bobbin rise but the only way i can get my bobbin to drop down is to fish with a slack line and then i cant get indications of back bites
any solution?

The bobbin needs to be higher mate. It depends on the wind and the lead I'm using but I'd say about 4 inches down.

If they're set low, you'll fail to see drop bites as clear enough as needed to determine whether or not it's a ling bite or something like that.

Buy a fox Euro swinger. They are very addjustable. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Tighten the line to your lead first then set the bobbin by taking line off the reel.

If you're watching for drop backs on slack line running rigs watch the line between the rod tip and the water. Or if you want it all tight, add more weight to your bobbin.

whether or not it's a ling bite or something like that.


You don't need a bobbin for a ling bite, they give a good old rattle [;)][:p][:D]
