Let’s keep it to ourselves Peter .And that's exactly the reason for mentioning it mate. These young 'guns' of today eh? Mention it and they go all blank looks and wonder what the heck you're talking about.
A chap called Col Foster showed me a few tricks when trotting many many years ago. We were fishing the Wharfe at Tadcaster below the A64 bridge. I was being lazy and running my stick through time after time and catching bugger all. Col was catching steady. So, I went to see what he was doing. He was combing stret pegging with letting it run through before holding back again. A rise and fall method. After holding back and on the rise of the maggot the roach were grabbing his bait. It was great to watch and certainly opened my eyes. Sadly Col died of cancer before I turned 17 so I could never return the favours of him taking me fishing all those times.
