Line from tip to feeder line length helps when casting ?I think Zerkalo is talking about the people who think they are venue experts. Most annoying to those of us that are.
Fishing Castle Ashby's Brickyard pond one day in a club match when a clubmate told me I was doing it all wrong (Banjo feeder/corn on the hook). Ten minutes later I was landing a 13lb carp.
As you know, I do everything wrong. You even told me the dacrons I was using (made by a fellow MDr) were too long. I still catch fish with them. Oh, and you said I don't have enough line from my rod tip when casting a feeder. Tip still goes round.
Short line from tip to feeder you are casting more off the tip than the rod .
Best bite I've had this week NON and it's only Monday
