What even if the 5th and 6th rods are in different swims?
Surely that is just plain good angling? http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Reason I ask is that I am halfway through reading a book where snide rods are openly talked about.

just wondered what the general concensus is...

Clearly I meant Per Swim....

Thank god for those 3 rod sleeves, makes carrying all the snides a lot easier.

or mores the point...if you saw someone using a snide would you say anything or not

A little one in the edge never hurt anyone did it?!? But I only ever 'bring out the gimp' when no-ones in the next swim and it's a 2 rod only water - never feel the need for a snide when I'm allowed to fish three legit rods.

Depends on the situation - on a club controlled water unfished by others - why not? I used to fish a 20acre pit which was subject to a 2 rod limit, despite there never being more than 3/4 anglers on there. Didn't hurt anyone if they had a cheeky snide in the bushes. Whereas on somewhere where the rule is sensible and appropriate, then no - I can honestly say CEMEX have got their rules about right for rod limits, and I have never felt the need for a cheeky one.

Why not tho Hippy, all that water over Wraysbury as you said..

I would turn a blind eye to snides if the water is large enough. 4thie was my best rod last year

I might have done and may have even caught on them.

But if I had, it would have been a long time ago, on a water that I am currently not fishing, in the depths of winter, when I had one half of the lake to myself.

Sometimes can be more of a hinderance than a bonus though!

"Why not tho Hippy, all that water over Wraysbury as you said.. "


Because Wraysbury has a 4 rod limit, more than enough to deal with.

NorfolkBob
16-01-2007, 12:44
can honestly say i never use snides.
i value my tickets too much and often use less than the allocation i'm allowed!

I usually only fish 2 rods even on waters where 3 or 4 are allowed, regardless of size of water.

Find that I fish better that way, more focus on angling the 2 spots better, and having so many lines in the water is a disadvantage on many pits IMHO.

Kev Wilson
16-01-2007, 12:50
Exactly Bob - sometimes a few less lines can do you all the good in the world! http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif

To be honest it wasn't really a snide as the bailiff knew about it and just used to look at it and grin - top geeza http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Ahhhh but you may have caught it sooner on your 3rd rod http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Might have even caught a Big brace had the snide been out !

will happily use a snide where i feel appropriate. Will allways observe the water and how busy it is before i do so.

The bailiffs on a water i fish were having a go at me when they found i had 3 rods out (2 rod limit) I said look around, its a 12 acre pit and i'm the only one on here, who am i troubling? They couldn't answer and left me to it.
as with all things. a bit of common sense applied and you shouldn't cause bother to others, which is my main concern.

Used to on a water where the bailiff was a complete pain, but this wa only so i could fish two rods effectively! He used to think i was breakign the rules if i had my rods six foot apart so as to cover two margin spots - one each side of my swim!
I wasn't the only one to have problems on this water, as some very well known anglers will testify - he even appeared in a book!

If no-ones around or it's people you can trust, then I don't see a problem with it. It's at your own risk at the end of the day. Oh... but if there is anyone reading this from my syndicate , then obviously i'm joking and I don't condone this kind of practice! http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I remember in younger years on very rare occasions fishing the sly extra rod at night etc on a club water I used to fish. Not really relaxing when I spent all the time looking around every corner for a visiting balliff or getting up early to reel it in.

in general I wouldnt do it however I do find it annoying when a big water which is not easy only offers 2 rods only...

Rules are rules..if you can't catch them legitimately then you're not as good as you think you are and you're only kidding yourself. Where does the line get drawn?...39lb 12oz = 40lb? Using a BB where they're banned? Fishing in no fishing zones?
If someone wants to cheat then that's up to them, personally, I like to fish within the rules of the water I'm on.
Now I'm going to get blasted about speeding and all that unrelated nonesense for sure http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I like to fish "alongside the rules" , a little overnight snide adds the spice of excitement to what is often a camping session . Will it be me or the carp that gets caught ? Lovin it ! Also , I have "Big Chuck Syndrome" that means I cannot fish at less than 100 yards unless it's a snide in the margins . Everyone knows that if you've got a syndrome or something ending in "osis" you can get away with anything . It's bound to be society's fault , so I don't thing anyone should be banned , just provided with a Snide Management Councellor and 20kg of boilies on prescription to help beat the addicition . http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif

If the fishing on a venue is a bit of a grey area (i.e. no signs to tell you that you can't fish there) then there aren't any rules to break anyway!
Must admit that if I'm on a club water i do stick within the rules, although if they aren't written properly then it isn't my fault if i 'misinterpret' them a bit.
