Someone else has told me, Toby's as well, Smatty.

So feathers, will they be ok on a spinning rod, reeling them in?

Are the simple plain white feathers best, or just as good as, the other multi-coloured/foil coated/bead enhanced/fake-prawn-attached feathers?


Off the kayak I often start with two (different) strings of 'feathers' until I've got dinner sorted. I often find that one gets hit all the time and one hardly at all, but there's not much of a pattern (at least that I can work out). Same thing happens when I go on the two hour mackerel trips with tourist friends out of Tenby etc.

I generally don't go wrong with the ones which look like glorified foil on a hook, or with plain old feathers. Best to go fishing with a chum or two and all use different tactics til you can work out what's working on the day.

Yes, tho when chucking off the rocks I generally use the shorter strings to prevent snags.

If you're in shallowish bassy/garfish territory you can even use one of the really heavy tobys instead of a lead weight.

Thanks NB.

When you say two different strings do you a bit like in fly fishing where you have one on point and a dropper?

No, not that complicated - I fish two rods off the kayak!

Cheers for all the replies peeps. I'll be investing in some feathers and Toby's.

Edit:- NB would something like this be ok?

OK we'll be indulging in some sea fishing next week. Do you need a rod licence to sea fish?

Thanks.

Thanks Nick. I've got one for my trout fishing and the youngest is under 12, so he don't need one. I was just thinking about the lazy sod that resides with us.

No, so long as you stay below the high water mark, you do need a licence for migratory fish, such as sea trout, so tell your bait not to attract any

Well I took the boys fishing, we caught nothing but they seemed to enjoy it.

I think the highligh had to be, standing on a sand bank and getting surrounded by the water as I was setting us all up. Thank heavens Mrs C walked by and told us.
