A Custom Build Barbel Twin Tip Rod By Andrew Boyne

Image
As you all know I am a float angler through and through, however, even I recognised there is a time a place to dispense with the float due to river conditions. Basically,
 it boils down to the fact that I don't want to drive thirty miles to the ribble and have to drive home because the river is five foot up, looks like chocolate milkshake and is unfishable
on the float.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also wanted a nice piece  kit for  " Salford Pete " to use when we manage to get out together. ( Trotting for five hours is hard work in your forties . . . . . .never mind your seventies ) He is always talking about our old trips to Bridgenorth fishing for barbel,
which was mainly tip fishing in the ealy days so I thought this would be a nice joint present between us.

When I approached Andy about the build we had a long chat regarding mine and my dads requirements.
I wanted a spliced tipped barbel rod that I could use on the Irwell as well as the Ribble.

New Carp Stalkers In Fluoro Purple & Glow In The Dark Yellow With New Threads

Image
I have finally managed to make a  day glow fluorescent purple paint.  It is not a deep blue purple but it is as good as I can create with the raw materials available. I have only made a couple of patterns, both straight wagglers in this colour.  One is the new  Carp Stalker pattern below.
The yellow float is a
" Glow In The Dark "
Version.
 For the Glow In The Dark vesion
I have used a couple of different thread colours, turquoise and plum tippets as well as the more standard black, gold, and a violet tag on the stem.
 For the purple float I have used the new turquoise and black tippets.
I am not too good and off work at the moment so the Mrs has grounded me.....LOL
When I am fit and ready I will be fishing down the side on some local lakes, hopefully some fish and float pctures will be forth coming a possibley a small blog will follow.
😁
May even drag Salford Pete along to catch a pb or two.

Another addition to my  " Carp Stalkers " is a Glow In The Dark version. I have made the first one in the original thread colours,
black, metallic gold and two shades of violet.
I am currently making some more that will be finished in a few different thread colours in the near future.

New Ivory Bodied Antenna Wagglers.

Image
Recently I have taken a liking to using ivory paint on some of my more recent float patterns.
Another pattern I have been meaning to make in this colour is the
 Bodied Antenna Waggler. A very useful float for fishing smaller baits like maggots and casters both on and off the bottom.
Best suited for tench, bream, roach and skimmers.
This pair take approximately 4AAA
and are finished in ivory, whippings are black, gold and two different shades of violet.

Sarkanda Reed Wagglers - A Set Of Five.

Image
As I have mentioned before I enjoyed working with " Sarkanda Reed " The first two I made were straight, loaded wagglers over 12 inches long for specialised deep water fishing at distance.

The third float was at the other end of the scale.
A short Carp Stalking Float.
http://purplepeanut007.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/margin-carp-stalker-sarkandas-waggler.html?m=1  This set of five
 "  Straight Sarkanda Wagglers "
 are somewhere in the middle in regards to size, unloaded this time and made for more general fishing.

Consisting of three floats in day glow fluorescent, one in black and one in  glow in the dark yellow. The threads used where black, metallic gold and two shades of violet. I will be using mine on the Rivers Irwell & Ribble
when the season opens.
