No need to pin line down. When I'm fishing severn in summer flood 2oz lead tops. Need more lead in wrong place. A braid stop or even a shot a foot above the lead stop crap coming over your bait. I look for pegs behind tress . You be surprised how close in you catch

Thanks for that chaps.

Really helpful, you have given me a better idea about how to approach it.

Quick question about the 'float stop' method. So, is the float stop used a foot ish above the lead, and the float stop is used to hold back a small weight which pins down the line? Just trying to get my head around it.

Cheers

The float stop is just that, not as a stop for a back lead.

Whatever method you use to get over the problem is worth the effort. A rising river has no equal for barbel feeding in my experience. As Dean said, tight to the near bank reduces the problem and the fish are certainly there.

Ok, You must forgive me. I am just finding my way around the river!

So, in terms of my rig. its a float stop...lead...buffer bead...and then hooklink?

So, the point of the stop is to allow, effectively, a longer hook length?

I know this must seem stupidly obvious to all of you, but before you reply, my previous fishing experience has been that of fishing in some poxy hole in the ground, pulling in overfed swollen carp! So, I really struggling with this.

Anyway, thanks chaps.

And I hope you don't hold my previous fishing experience against me. haha

Hi William,

The float stop is to stop the debris that is hitting your from line sliding all the way down to your lead/hook link. I always use a float stop above my lead in all situations, something I've done for years and it certainly helps. You still get wiped out by the amount of debris but I've found the stop reduces this. Sometimes moving the stop down towards the lead you can create a semi fixed bolt rig. I sometimes have the stop an inch away from the lead and swivel with has turned those plucks and pulls into wraparounds. Try it and good luck.
Cheers Ian.
