Re: trolling and livebaiting for Kingies

to much thinking! there is no need for a clip at all. Simply blow up your ballon, when ready to tie a knot in it take a small loop of the main line the required distance from the live bait and feed it through the balloon knot, pull the balloon knot tight, then pull line through the knot so loop is t...

Re: Burley

I Agree with most of the other comments regarding currant strength vs height in water colum. the type of fish you are targeting wil also have a bearing on this. I always fish in the best currant i can find, though if it is real fast i will try to fish the edge where its alittle slower. The hard thin...

Re: Alvey Reels

I too love the alveys and use nothing else. as for broken and worn parts..... Ive never had any of that trouble and ive been using them for over 20 years. The trick to tangle free casting is to replace the first eye with one half again biger. that stops any loop getting around that first eye. I also...
