It's all too easy to set precedence's here and venues/match organisers need to be very careful....Mugging on the pole now....I've heard similar terms applied to the pellet waggler.....To be fair, it should all depend on the fishery rules - not a rule regarding mugging but rules regarding if a float is a necessity, if the float needs to be in the water, if there is a minimum hooklength, the length of the lash, and if floating baits are allowed.
If the act of mugging breaks any of the rules then it shouldn't be allowed.
By that logic would you find sight casting bonefish on a flat boring or brownies on a chalk stream? It’s not that different really when you think about it in terms of putting a bait in front of a fish.It shouldn't be banned, but it's an incredibly cheesy and boring way of fishing IMO. An hour of mugging would suck the joy out of the day for me.
Its a great methodJust read a thread on a match fishing group about mugging. It seems to really divide opinion. What's everyone take on mugging in matches? For it? Against it and think it should be banned? If so why?
I personally don't have a problem with it and will do it where allowed.
Put someone up against any expert in any sport and they'll get smashed upIt certainly is, put someone up against the experts at it and see how they fare……
I think you need to book an appointment with an otorhinolaryngologist to get your hearing sorted mate.........I think the conversation may have gone along the lines of.... ".....I'm 4' 6" and I'm just popping out to the vets to get our Winston some Bob Martin tablets....."I think the sun IS getting to everyone. . Never met Dave but, he told me he is 6’ 4” and looks a lot like Ricky Martin. Ive no cause to disbelieve him.
