  1. i am thinking of investing in the Shakespeare Mach 2 Barbel Rod it can be used as a quiver tip or avon style, i am hoping to use it for big bream carp and tench, aswell as chub barbel and trout the majority of all my fishing so far as been done on the float in lakes, but its about time i tried some other methods
  2. cheers for the info, i think i will give them a try if i get chance to get any fishing done in the next week or so, or might have to wait for the warmer weather to come back before they take effect
