" The Irwell Stick " My Favourite Float of All

Image
" The Irwell Stick "

I have caught more fish on this float than any other !!!!!! 
This is a simple looking float but probably the most versatile float I use.
Its main us is for shallow, pacey runs on a river. Great for all species when using all but the biggest of hook baits.
Great for fishing down the side on commercials or poking your rod through the trees when stalking carp.
This float is definitely the first pattern in my tackle box.

Its
"Castermans "
favourite to.  😊


This set is bound for a life winding down the river Douglas.
I also have a set of large Irwell sticks on the go. I will post when complete. 😊
Here are some " Irwell Stick " caught fish. 😊







Not all my fish btw......lol
Until the next time . . . . .

" Extra Long Sneaky Lifters " another pair !!!!!!

Image
Below are  a pair of . . . 
Extra Long Sneaky Lifters.
An unusually long float, designed to present particle baits to finicky feeders such as crucian carp and roach in deep water but at home for any species when partical fishing.
Again, these will be used on very specific northern waters. I am looking forward to seeing how these perform.




I wrote this piece a week ago and I am in the final stages of making my own.
No deep lake crucian carp fishing for me unfortunately. I will have to try mine out at a commercial. !!!!!
I may have one or two waters up my sleeve but I haven't fished them for years . 😊

I will place a picture of mine here when finished. 😉

Until the next time . . . . .

Heavy Wire Stemed Avon In Sexy Pink

Image
Here is the second addition to the 
" Heavy Wire Stemed Avon " Range.
It is the same weight as the original orange version but finished in sexy pink with silver thread and a jay feather inlay.
This also 3 -4g (4 - 5 AAA ish ) with an alloy stem.






This will be paired up with the original orange one for two friends to use in the River Ribble and the Dove.
Lets hope we will be seeing both these floats in the new season next to some lovely captures.
The ball is in your court gentlemen.  I've done my part. . . . . Lol

Until the next time . . . . .

New G.I.T.D. Tinca Stick

I am starting to get into the groove for the up and coming Tench season.😉
Below is a . . . . . . . . . 
" Pearlescent, Feather inlayed, Glow In The Dark ( G.I.T.D. ) Tinca Stick "

Finished in black purple and silver thread.
I have also pearled the black cotton on the bottom two thirds of the float, gives quite a nice effect. 😁
What do you think ?????









I am lucky enough to have found two local tench waters close to me over the past year, so, hopefully I will have some nice pictures to show you all in the coming weeks.

Until the next time . . . . .
