Drennan Boilee Hooks sizes 4 and 6 (for general boilie fishing)

For heavy work near snags Mustad O`Shaunasey (sp!) 2s to 6s

Also Drennan Super Specialist 2s to 6s


Rod Hutchinson`s THE EDGE 15 lb (it sinks nicely and is very reliable!)

I use unwaxed dental floss for the hair


I use the Helicopter Rig with tubing to protect the line. I also use tungsten putty around the tubing to make it stay along the bottom.


I use the Line aligner rig with the hooklength coming from the silicon tubing.

I fish pop-ups ALL the time , but fish them close to the bottom !


The picture above was taken in 1990 and i still have the much the same tackle today ! I dont tend to change the main parts of my tackle very much , tending to stick with what i know and can afford!
