    I will have to find my flying gaff out i havent seen it for yonks then i will put some pictures on showing how it is constructed , it works well as long as you can get the line vertical and the hook is above the level of the sinker, it would work very well from a pier etc

    The pole fixed to a pivot is the best way for me , theres a load of ways to bring this about:

    • Everything from a piece of good sized angle iron , cut a piece out of the angle just wider than the pipe.
    • Drill a hole through the angle iron below the level of the piece you cut out ,
    • Get a piece of round bar around 8mm dia , that is long enough to go through the angle iron hokes you drilled
    • Now get yourself a length of steel pipe just smaller than the pulley tube , this pipe should be around 15 inches long ,
    • drill 2 holes opposite e ach other just larger than the 8mm bar ,
    • position the tube on the angle iron push the 8mm rod through the pipe and the angle iron
    • then get the rod welded on the outside of the AA , make the AA at least a couple of feet long ,
    • position it at the right spot on the cliff top leaving the swivelling action just above the cliff top level ,
    • then its just a matter of putting your pole on the pipe hand ball the fish up , and pull the pole up over the pole and fish end up behind you ,
    • fix a lanyard to the pole to make things easy , with this set up it can if need be a one man job
