    A boat trip with my wife.

    My wife and I are coming down for our hols.I am bringing my boat hoping to get out and do some fishing.To get some brownie points I will take her on a river trip. She recentley saw some pirates on tv going from poole to Wareham and wants to make the trip.(hope she doesnt want us to dress up).I see there are two rivers that go up that way and I presume the river Frome is the way to go.any advice will be gratefully appreciated.many thanks Johnnyb.

    Stop knots on braid

    Ahha,Ive been using 40lb mono for my stopknots thinking thinner line will slip through the float. another fiddley thing is getting the braid through the float,takes me ages . any tips to stop it bending. float stops sound good---and I always lubricate with a bit of spit.

    Stop knots on braid

    Quick question ,do stop knots on sliding float rigs work well on braid ? or is it best to put 30 or 40 ft of line to the end of the braid. Ive put sliding stop knots on braid and they dont seem to sit very nicley on braid...help.... many thanks johnnyb.

    reel match

    Had a look at Avets,they really do seem to be a top quality reel and, as with everything a price to match.Which model is best for light inshore and maybe a bit of uptiding.they seem to range from £150 to about £450.?
