    Show us what you come up with. Whistler is always looking for library material
    to add.

    I suggest getting 2 for each pole you have. Never know when you may need an extra.

    definately thanks for all the advice much appreciated. one more question though how do you cast if your fishing deep and the lines hanging real long?

    When you cast, you line isn't really long. You have just your leader dangling below the bobber. What you should have should look like:

    J----------8-----O--------[]--------------------&----------
    hook swivel weight Bobber stop knot



    The stop knot travels through the guides on your poles and is iwrapped on the reel.

    This is a very simplistic explanation as you should also have beads between the swivel and weight and the bobber and the stop knot.
