I'm quite excited about a new set of
I have purchased recently. They are manufactured by Preston Innovations and come in various different sizes and styles. The ones I have purchased are the insert dura wag adjustable loading model. If you know anything about freshwater float then you will be aware that some floats come with the weight already built into the base. The majority of the ones I have ever used require some extra shot just to bring them down to the correct depth. However, these new ones by Preston Innovations are fully weighted straight out of the packet. This means that you can simply clip them on the line and they are set up absolutely perfectly in the water. However, some people want to put some extra weight down the line, whether this be some bulk shot to take the bait down quickly, or various shot spread evenly to ensure the bait falls uniformly through the water. These floats have been designed so that you can take small increments of weight off the float in order to you to add your own weight. You simply unscrew the base and slip one of the weights off which come in the form of a small metal ring.
The reason I absolutely love these floats is because you don't use locking shot to attach them to your line. The problem I've always had with using your bog standard shot is getting them to stay on the line properly. I do a lot of margin fishing and nine times out of 10 the carp will take you through all the snags in the margin which normally results in all the shot being either moved, or ripped off completely.
If you are in the UK then you may be interested in a new fishing program that starts this evening on ITV. It's called Fishing Impossible and follows three anglers travelling around the world attempting to catch fish that are considered very difficult to catch.
In this week's episode they have travelled to Canada.
I came across these a few months ago and I absolutely love them. I do a lot of method feeder fishing nowadays and really like using match mini boilies around eight or 10 mm in size. These 4 inch hair rigs incorporate a special bayonet which you simply push into the Boilie. So there's no messing around with hairs and fiddly little stops.
I was looking into buying one of those Water Wolf underwater cameras that you can attach your rig to film the fish whilst they take your bait. I did a quick search on the Internet and came across what I assumed was probably a slightly cheaper version of the camera. After all, Go Pro produce various cameras that differ in price. The first one I bought only cost me £90, the most recent one was nearly £300.
What I didn't realise at the time was I was actually buying just the base that the camera fits on. However, I believe the advert was very misleading as the camera was included in the photo.
