Fair enough pal, I've not heard that one before. Each to their own and if it works for you then all the better ?Altho the purists may scoff at the idea, I found a bobbin incredibly useful when persuading me to ignore all the twitches and bumps when I starting feeder fishing a few years ago. If the bobbin doesn’t move I just sit on my hands until it does. Just make sure your bobbin isn’t too heavy ... a dace or roach needs to move it after all and many are designed for large carp it seems. Obviously before I get slaughtered my advice is rubbish in anything but a mild flow or still water...?
