infact I still buy only one size plummet . . the biggest I can find . . this does for waggie, stick and pole plumming . . . the initial splash doesn't spoil the day . . not knowing how deep it is certainly does

fishing is nature's medical prescription

This range of floats combines the best of both methods, float fishing and legering. The floats automatically lock and unlock with the aid of the unique ‘Frixon’ device. No shot or weights on the line make this method of fishing very sensitive to bite indication.

And hear the brook, and feel the breeze;
and see the waves crash on the shore,

Yup, totally agree, Den ... but where do you find a half-decent plumber these days?

Another point about plumbing on canals is they often have a good depth of silt. I found this out the hard way whilst treading water and feeling with my toes for a pole section that had blown in.
I was amazed how soft and deep was this silt and the use of a heavy plummet in a swim like this would give a totally false reading.
