Hi motocrossboy, thanks for that,i fish the ribble or the dane, theres a big difference in size of rivers the ribble i usually fish two rods and "bait and wait".On the dane its stalking tactics.I hav'nt had much luck at either venues so far, just a few chub and two barbel so far but autunm is coming...the best is yet to come...i hope...paul.
