  •  Fishing with a FIXED line, which is 'buffered' (5+ / 0-)

    ....by a short length of strong elastic, attached to a length of nylon line, which uses a streamlined bob-float as a bite indicator began on Continental European fisheries (mostly canals and lakes). 'Pole' fishing as it is called is designed for FAST fishing and tight control of bait position.

    These modern, hollow fibre poles are enormous! They can be up to 23 feet long! In case you are wondering how you REACH the fish after you hook it, you rapidly unship the end section (and possibly the next one) as you draw the fish in. I never liked this type of fishing, as you cannot present the bait ledger style.
