If you have the permit, I am off to the Short Arm in Port Talbot tomorrow, fishing low(ish) tide up.

You are more than welcome!

Phil- I've been meaning to ask you - why do you use two beads above the sliding float i.e. between the float and the stop knot in your float setup and why is the bottom one of the two smaller?

The stop bead is instead of a stop knot!

I didnt realise I said that, and I quote:

Now for the order of tackling up:

(1) Stop Bead/float stop
(2) Bead, big enough not to go through the float, 4mm I find ideal
(3) Float
(4) Another bead, this one will protect the bottom of the float
(5) Weight
(6) Bead, to protect the knot
(7) Swivel
(8) Hook length and hook


I havent mentioned that I use different sizes, only hinted at using the smallest beads possible.

Guys,

I have noticed a few of the Welsh lads mentioning that you need permits to fish certain peirs in Wales.

What's the craic with this, I have never came across this in Ireland.

I do have a game fishing permit but nothing for sea fishing.

Independent companies own the long and the short arms in Port Talbot.
Chorus owns one and some other company the other they charge for using their peers to fish.

I’m not sure what is up with Mumbles peer but apparently you can hire it out so it may well also be an independent company.

its easiest to ask brandon about hiring the mumbles peir as he frequently organises events on it... the last time we had it from 8pm til 8 am
