  1. Love Niges book, but Terry is an amazing story teller. I could sit and listen to his tales for hours on end.

    New reels ?

    I’ve got the Ci4s in 5500 - absolutely stunning reels. Wouldn’t think twice about getting the 14000’s if I needed the extra distance. You won’t regret it. Make sure you play around with the washers to adjust the line lay. Mine came more front heavy. A thick and a thin washer sorted that out - nice and flat.

    Line keeps looping up

    Just to follow up on this, I’m using new 15lb Technium Black that I’ve just spooled onto my reels. Not having any of the problems you mentioned above, so must have been a dodgy batch. It hangs limply between eyes, no cooling what-so-ever.

    Opinions please

    I completely agree it was a surface caught fish. However, it sounds like you are doubting it, as when you set the challenge to yourself, you made an assumption that it would be a controller / free lined caught fish. Therefore, to satisfy yourself, get out there in this hot weather and fire out some mixers!!!

    Any recommendations?

    IMO avoid the fishing manufactures, and go for a decent walking boot.

    They came in 3s or 4s as a set. I used to have the Red, Yellow, Green set.

    Baiting Pole

    I assumed that the figure quoted by BC included that - hence the difference?

    I used to use the euro swingers. Not really sure why they ever had three holes anyhow.

    Who still ?

    Majority of my bottom bait fishing is using a double 15mm boilie, and a long hair to a size 6 curve shank hook. Very rarely get hook pulls.
