I'm looking at fishing one of our local waters for Tench and Bream and it's quite deep in the middle - about 14 foot.

I've just ordered a couple of polaris leger floats off the net to add an additional option to fishing this, rather than simply feeder / leger and these are supposed to take the hassle out of using a slider and stopknot.

Can anyone tell me what they are like (a bit late if they are carp, I know but it hasn't cost me much)?

Thanks

Alan

Hi Alan
I had a couple and i got on very well using them but you will take a bit of time to get use to them
I found that bites were very easy to detect.

Oops - yes I mean't rubbish!

So - the great Haydn Borthwick couldn't figure out how to use a polaris float, eh?

What chance has humble old me got, then?

Nice trophy, by the way!

Thanks, Ian - I'm pleased you mentioned the bites were easy to detect. I wasn't sure whether that would be the case or not!.

Hi Alan,
I've used them at Drayton and they are really good, I use round bullet leads with mine (1oz or 2ozs) and never had a problem with bite detection and are easier than using a slider for me.
