  • pole fishing

    im planning on buying a pole in the next couple of weeks. the pole im hopeing to buy is the shimano technium xta 1300. on the whole it seems a good price and had some decent reviews especially for a first time buyer pole.

    obviously there is alot to pole fishing especially when teaching yourself so i will probably be posting a few questions over the next few weeks. i will be grateful if you do your best to answer them plz.

    the first questions i would like answering are:

    1. regardless of strength do poles take any make elastic?

    2. when pole fishing is it best to use a lighter line than waggler fishing even if you are targetting the same size fish? also do you have to buy different lines for poles?

      the pole should be rated and it will tell you the maximum elastic it takes....
