this was long before i met dick its the story of two young men struggling to catch in the mid sixtys. ithink it was 1967 when myself and graham obtained permission to fish a small pool about two acres the owner told us it held big carp and tench atter a look arround we decided to fish from a staging which was out in the pool access was repaired and we were like two exited youngsters , what we using for ground bait says graham blood says i so off to the local abitor the foreman was quite amazed when i told him it was for fishing after filling my bucket from a tap i arrived home and mixed layers mash and bread crums it absolutely stank we decided to fish from firs light the day arrived getting there at one am getting most of the tackle onto the stage i went back for the rods guess what yours truly slipped and went head first into the pool bloody soaked through and to far to go home i decided to stick it out i was froze in went the ground bait cor did it stink we were using floats id made out of drinking straws whith a brass insert in the end with a whipped eye to it practicaly self cocking a small shot above the float and bb above the hook first light arrived and we caught from the start they went absolutly mad tench after tench all regurgitating the blood and mash the sun came up and i steamed like a kettle what a morning id never seen anything like it at mid day we struggled to lift our nets in all we caught 200 pounds of tench with many fish going to 5 half pounds also perch over 2pounds we returned the next week to catch another eighty pounds the carp eluded us but as i said to graham there is always another day

this is my favourite `pin. its not famous or made by anyone that is, but it is as good as those that are.
made by a friends friend, its a copy, but by god its good!!

i use it for trotting mostly, but have landed carp to mid-twenties on it.


& yes, this one has handles, but my other one doesn`t!

It just has a narrow strip of material to connect it to the reel seat. Spins for nearly 2 minutes

I was given it as a leaving present from my last job. I did the drawings and the Engineer did the machining.

Andy, if the new reel has no back plate what does the spool rotate on?

Line off the bottom is far more common than having it coming off the top, although I have seen the odd person using it with the line coming off the top.

Many pins have a line guard which makes it impossible to fish with the line coming off the top, and it feels unnatural to anyone who has used a fixed spool.

My new 'pin is custom made in aircraft aluminium, just a spool and bearings, no backplate, no handles, no line guard, nothing - a proper 'back to basics' reel, although I'm sure the traditionalist wouldn't approve! Only had a quick go on the lake so far, the river awaits!

the reason i was told to have it coming off the top, was to make control of the line easier in windy conditions. you get far fewer wraprounds, & its harder for the line to get caught on any vegetation in front of you. because no true river angler would have a line guard!!!

how free running is your pin, bill? mine takes 4 no.6 to pull line off the reel when fitted to the rod with 3.2lb bayer on it.
also, out of interest, is yours a true `pin or does it run on a bearing?

I think you had better check again Birchman....

perhaps i was shown different to you, bill. but its definately from the bottom for fly reels, & off the top for using a `pin properly.....

when casting & retrieving i was always shown that way, makes it easier to bat the reel.
i was also taught to remove the handles & play fish with either a finger in the hole or by gripping the rim with the whole hand.


oh dear, after reading the last few posts, i regret using terms like "from the bottom", "easier to bat","finger in the hole" & "gripping the rim".......
ahem, anyone watch the boxing?
