  • pole advice

    hi,i have not long started fishing and could do with some advice to see if i could have done anything different,i have recently got a beastmaster margin pole which is elasticated with size 12,i have had carp to 8lb on this pole and have landed them ok,but i was at tunnel barn last saturday and hooked a fish which i just could not land, 25 minutes i played it for, but sadly it got away from me

    try fitting a number 14/16 latex thru you top kit and double up the last foot, this will give some extra security if you hit another "submarine" After all a margin pole is aimed at fishing for the big uns so gear up accordingly, I use a red hydro thru mine.

          Start be threading your elastic through the bung and then tie a big loop! Ithink the knot is a double overhand loop pulled tight!
