    Ronnie rigs for barbel?

    I think that it is not necessarily a fancy rig that makes the difference but maybe a completely different bait or different presentation that can have the most impact. I will give an example of a water with a large head of barbel, heavily fished but not renown for being a difficult water...

    HEADLAMPS the ultimate !

    I have ordered one of the torches that Gerry has recommended using the eBay link. I have been using Energizer head torches, which are cheap as chips, for many years. They do have a red light option but you have to click through 4 white light options first (shame they didn't put red first). I...

    Float Rod Problem

    Success- Mr Sheen comes to the rescue. Had a short session this afternoon/evening and no problem with the line sticking. It wasn't raining today but I dipped the rod in the water and it wasn't a problem. Also caught a barbel on float fished hemp which gave me a chance to see how the rod performs...

    Elliptical Pellets

    I was very disappointed when Hinders ellips changed shape - I preferred the way 2 of the old style elips glued together on a hair - but in all honesty the barbel don't seem to care e.g. 31 barbel in 2 days on Wye earlier this month . I bought some of the Sonubait eliptical pellets but...

    Float Rod Problem

    Hi Mike, the reason I asked this question is that Keith Speer recommended this rod and didn't say "Great rod but you need to put a new set of rings on it". Sadly Keith is no longer around to ask but I have seen video footage of him on the Avon at Britford using the rod and catching loads of...

    Float Rod Problem

    I'm a little confused now. Some people seem to be talking about cleaning the rod and then finishing it with silicone furniture polish and some people seem to be talking about treating the line to stop it sticking. Should I do both? Neil
