Reg is back from fishing off the Elliston pier.
Here is a handy fishing tip.
Take the spring out of a pen and twist it onto your main line above your trace so that it is free to runup and down. Make a dough using oil, flour, and pollard or bran. Roll a small amount into the spring before casting out. I've experimented making different scented doughs, from mulie oil to pureed crab [wife's blender works great.] The best doughs always seemed to be the ones containing a little blood, [kept from numeruos BBQ packs].
The more flour that is added, the stronger the dough will be, but don't make it so that it wont disperse a little upon impact. Very little dough is needed for a good fishing session, so concentrate on fresh concentrated flavours rather than volume.
