The 'Problem' with using two rods!

Post  TenchmanTim on Sun Jan 29, 2012 1:30 am

Hi All,
I've been getting in a few evening sessions lately, and would normally only use one rod. But last week I fished a stretch of the Ivel which was new to me, so I decided to use a couple of rods so I could cover more water. This was fine until in one swim I got two bites almost simultaneously! So I had to land the first fish and fortunately the second 'bigger' chub had patiently hung on waiting to be landed and was soon bundled into the net together with his mate! Just like buses, eh!

Hello Martin

Nice brace mate, not really a problem is it when it works out.

Had a similar experience this season with a brace of 6s from the Thames and once had a brace of 11lb barbel from the Kennet in the landing net together. Mind you I`ve also had a couple of disasters but the less said about them the better.

Nice to see your into a few fish Martin, never like using two rods for chubing, I prefer to touch ledger with one, however in my earlier days on throop with the magott feeder,I always used two,and it was common, and comical at times with a double hook up's. Shocked

I too am of the opinion that two rods are more trouble than they are worth. Far better to use one rod even if a long wait is expected between bites. Using just one rod means all your concentration is focused into one place. On windy days even this can be difficult to do!
