a good afternoon to all the anglers at IA,

I'm interested to lay my hands on some PVA's and a Spod.
Where can i get them??
Are they available here in India?

You won't get PVA string, mesh or bags here but its easy enough to make a DIY spod from a plastic bottle. For rig bits and pieces I usually put together an order from Bosfish or Chapmans - Swifty used to be good fast and cheap but they seem to be closed now. You planning to use particles or boilies? I've been dissappointed with the size of fish on particles and I haven't have the resolve to carry out a seroius prebaiting campaign to get the fish switched on to boilies. Paste seems to be the stuff that works well here but in the places I fish you need to pop it up with a cork ball.

thanks for the post.
i just wanted to try out the pva's and spod; they seem to be making a lot of news!!!
Anyways here in Meghalaya, we have to bait the hook. Exposing the hook means no fish!!!
The fishes are smart. You have to stalk them in certain locations.

Hi Allan II :P ,

In case you want to make your own spod, I can post a photo of the same. I do not agree with your assumption that fishes will not take exposed hooks. It is how you present the bait.

Regards,

Ali. :-)

Here is link to a hand made spod photo. The bottom portion is HD foam.

That home made spod would do the trick. It will be a swine to reel back in though. :-) Spods are good for baiting up a far off swim with particles but you'll probably find that a method-feeder spring is a better way of getting fish near your hook if you are using paste.

I agree with Ali about hair-rigging - give it a try. It is very effective with shy fish.
