  • Can anyone give me advice on handlining pole elastic

    As the title says I am trying to clarify if it is legal ( with rod licence rules ) to play and land a fish just pulling the the pole elastic by hand after being hooked on the pole

    Why? Are you referring to pullla bungs or literally throwing pole section to floor and hand lining, there is a subtle difference.

      I have seen this banned on some lakes, regardless of the uk rules (fishery rule).

      I think the danger of a float in the finger or eye should a fish come off would deter hand lining and you should possibly turn to a pulla

          very dangerous thing to do............floats in hands and eyes are more common than we think

            To answer your question why? Because I would like to know. I see by nfa rules it is not allowed but is there any mention on rod license ?

              this happened to me years ago, pulling from a margin snag, i wrapped a towel around my hand and pulled the elastic - the plastic bristle went straight through my thumb !!!!!!!. I saw it happen again last week --- for SAFETY'S SAKE DON'T DO IT

                it should only be done when you are pulling for a break with a towel wrapped around your hand it would be intresting to know what speed a pole float comes back at when you pull for a break

                  My mate had a float shoot back and hit him below his eye,it hardly broke the skin and there was just a red mark,he lost 80% vision permanently in the eye! This was accidental from a foul hooked fish,its hardly worth tempting fate by doing it on purpose!

                    When I pull for a break I not only wrap a towel around my hand, I also stand and turn my back away. Fishing is brilliant but it's not worth your vision, if there is any way to reach the rig it's best just to cut it off.

                      He's not asking about going for a break off, he's actually asking about playing and landing fish??

                        Kev, its the same thing, if hook hold goes or line snaps a disaster is on the cards.

                          dont see why you would consider landing the fish by pulling the elastic alone as its a very silly thing to do and has no advantages over either a top kit or puller bung if i was you stick with the latter

                            What I do if I'm snagged and need to pull elastic by hand is to use a landing net to hold elastic under water and pull away in safety!

                              Handlining is extremely dangerous and should be banned
