Pole fishing

Post by fishdorset on Wed Jul 14, 2010 10:02 am

Any other pole anglers on site?

I used to do quite a bit of match fishing, where without a pole on some venues you'd be lost.

Accurate on the spot every put in. You can fish this method very light and on pressured waters it can give you the edge to get the bites.

No skill involved just dangling the bait on the fishes nose till it bites. Very Happy

Laughing i've got a few friends who like a bit of pole fishing always give them a bit of stick Wink
I'm sure it's good fun when you hit into a good carp, and i've seen many an angler battling with a double for over half an hour.

Nothing better than a light whip in the margins Laughing

ou er missis! Laughing

I love the waggler, feeder and stick to, but it always is a choice which to fish. I don't always make the right choice on the day due to the fact that I have a particular way that I have planned to fish. You know the I haven't fished this way for ages and no matter what you're going to do it! Laughing

Just finished my level 1 Angling coaching course in Worcester and the other eight participants were all coarse anglers. I thought beach rods were expensive but some had poles that cost 1900:00 and were 22 metres in length. What's all that about? :face:

and holding the pole still at 22metres, gets heavy at that length, thats where the price goes up and you should be getting lighter and stronger material.

Poles of that length aren't "held". They are rested on a spray bar and floated on the surface of the lake, usually with a very short length of line to the hook, you then just spray loose feed around the hookbait with a catty and wait for the fish to hook itself against the elastic.

Yep I know the floating pole. Some venues/matches have banned them!
"held" being the wrong choice of words. Floated across to an island margin, but due to price and an edge in a match, some clubs saw them as an unfair advantage to the mear mortals who didn't have the money to spend on the pricier poles.

Lodden Lakes in Gill normally fishes well in the spring, summer and autumn. Really dies off through the winter, odd fish in certain places.
Turners Paddock is another lake I like up at Stourhead.

Lodden is jointly owned by Gillingham & Sturminster clubs. Good mix and head of fish. Double figure carp & pike, bream, roach, tench, perch.
Turners Paddock (Gill club), good head of bream and tench. Roach, rudd and a few pike, the odd rogue carp.

The winter club matches at Gill are on the upper Stour, good bunch of blokes with a friendly match atmosphere. Miss that! Hense the thoughts of joining next year.

I like the punch over loose feed hemp. Normally shows up the better roach & chub, & mix in some casters on the hook.
