Just tied some rigs for tomorrow. Managed to do 5 and struggled. Canal floats so very fine silicon tubing and thin line... that's the bit I struggle with.

I remember when I used to sit and do them on saturdays as a kid, it was never the easiest job due to the diameter of the rubber, but it takes me twice as long these days due to fading eyesight.

So I need a magnifying lamp. Don't want to spend too much, anyone got any suggestions of good cheap ones?

I was the same, mate. Bought a magnifier/light from Lidl but it's not much cop. However, I have recently bought one of these & it's great for getting the silicon on the line.
