Cheers for the reply,


The Hook was in before the tail into the bone like this picture in this link below \/

Best way to hook deadbait LINK

It was the other hook that kept falling off. I've been fishing for pike for while not deadbaiting though.

Thanks FF.

the 3rd pic is the better option for deadbaiting pal  the one with the sardine this will cast the best

I use deadbait casting clips...... cast as far as you want and never lose a bait

I never fish less then a size 4. But its what you feel is best. Bait size is another factor.

depends on what size fish your after and bait size
I have a theory about using bigger hooks size 4s   think theres less chance of a fish swallowing a bigger hook  in the process of swallowing it would get caught up in the mouth before getting to the gut area...
I strike straight away ...no waiting,,,, Very Happy

Cheers for the reply,

I'm fishing tomorrow hopefully going out with two rods thanks psion!! Don't have an extra alarm yet and I'm wondering what float setup would ye suggest? Something simple but effective would be great!

Also just wondering about striking into the fish at distance, do you really have to strike hard into the fish? What I did is reel down slow and then I strike not hard or anything, just asking as I've lost my last 5 fish within 10 ish seconds after striking, I feel the fish and then bam I lose the fish really frustrating to be honest!

Cheers ff.

Tried the rod today and worked well psion many thanks,

But a bit of an update ( i went to a lake That's supposed to hold some nice pike first time getting something!! ) finally got a decent fish not sure on weight as I broke my other scales, she was a beauty around 110cm not sure on weight but it was some take the banksticks nearly collapsed I've never seen such a take, she either hit the line I think as I got a solid alarm sound then nothing I then reeled in the line a foot or so and as soon as I put it back on the alarm bam!!! A good fight to, she was released. Just a question though

What scales would ye suggest I was looking at the savage gear digital scales on sale to 16£


Any suggestions ?


Cheers FF.

The fox scales are a battery eater Psion, I just take one of the batteries and turn it round when not in use and ive had the same ones in for 2 seasons and they do get a bit of work lol. Ive also reubens and avons but i like the digitals for zeroing scales, wet net or not theres no wavering. a 20 is a 20 not somewhere between a bouncing spring 8oz either way☺. If you hold the rubens by the dial instead of the little hook you can add a pound easy, many 19s claimed 20s this way Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Ive had 110cm fish weigh from 19lb 8oz upto 22lb 12oz depending on the time of year, great fish Flyfishin what ever she weighed.
