thanks for the info, sounds straightforward enough,
I've read all the advice about touching them, very scientific.
I thought about spinning, we've spun for sewin (spelling) in Wales and spent most of the time retrieving the spinners, so I think feathers will be best bet.
no worries, probably best to stick to 3 hook feathers, 6 hook ones can get in a bit of a tangle if you get a full load.
try smoking some of your catch, delicious.
