I am sure that a lobworm fished under a carefully plumbed pole rig coupled with accurate baiting via a pot would be a far superior way of catching large perch , course it would . In the right hands ! So why I why did I attempt to such a thing yesterday ? My attempt at pole fishing was a disaster , I sat with pole in hand pretending to be a match angler but with none of the grace as I messed it all up .
One I caught doing it they way I know how
Needless to say , fishing outside my comfort zone I blanked . And to top it all off I had the Flying Fisherman for company all day , the sod sat by me (not fishing) and almost froze to death which was a small price to pay for taking the piss all day . Well it was a lesson learned and I will in future save the pole for dropping rigs in place on my favourite barbel swims and leave delicately shotted float rigs to those that know how to use them .
Have a look at the youtube videos , you will piss yourself .I guarantee you will watch it and think to yourself "what a cock!"
