Some good info there Denis. For some reason mussels have always been my most successful whiting bait.

Cheers for that Denis. What are the pros of using an 8ft rod?

Hard to argue with any of that Denis, and wouldn,t want to with your record on KGW.
However personal preference is to do away with the 3 way swivel hardware.

To find a fish
You do the miles.
Catch the fish
and earn the smiles.

Lord,allow me to catch a fish, so large that even I,when speaking of it afterwards.........May have no need to lie !!!
