    I'm on 12lb mono straight through, although I'm toying with the idea of braid

    I use 30lb braid with a small 30" 15lb-20lb mono trace (braid would get caught on the front treble during the cast).

    You've twisted my arm Dav, damn more expense :surprise:

    Yeah it is like , but you can upgrade to a stronger breaking strain because of the lower diameter , which in turn means loosing no line if ure unlucky enough to hit a snag , and it lasts alot longer..........have a trawl through e bay or summit , you should pick summit up like power pro in 300 yds for 20 quid or summit from the usa.....ive tried a couple of different brands and so far im quite happiy with 20lb power pro in olive green .....cheers

    :happy: :happy: :happy:

    I bought the big magnum for catching tuna, but it might get a try out for a laugh this summer, dives to 20ft so it might troll up a pollack ?

    Diver- Storm jointed thunderstick
    Popper- Aile magnet sandeel or green mackerel
    popper- chug bug big bug,for when the water is a bit choppier or visibility is low.

    Anybody had any success with the jointed thunderstick,bit difficult to source over here they seem to sell out quickly.This again is a shallow diver.Got 6 on order in various colours.
  13. Mark

    Mark Blenny

    I personally think the storm jointed thunderstick has got to be up there with the best all round shallow diving plug. Had countless bass on them and have personally witnessed fish to 15lb on one.

    I was wondering if any of you lads, make your own fly's....why i ask is i know a lad who has had a lot of success with bass fishing a clear a bubble float trailing a small Delta eel behind, i was thinking of giving it a go this season but trying a sandeel looking type fly instead of the Delta eel, i thought it might come in useful if there is a bit of an onshore wind making it difficult to get a plug out to were you want it. If any of you lads are intrested in making a couple of sandeel eel type fly's let me know and i will gladly buy some from you..
