for me there is no better detection than a float , as soon as it goes hit it .. simples

or the old drop arm at the back . I like to add a small weight to mine just so it tightens up quicker , just rap a bit of lead around the stem

you can also add an audible alarm to the front bankstick Very Happy

Delkims and drop off rear indicators for daylight fishing, and a set of Fox STRs with reciever that i use at night with heavy drop off arms and the bait runner engaged so theres no line skip on the wheel. Belt and braces approach. I would have Billys if live baiting was allowed over here though as well Embarassed
