I like probably a lot of other anglers try to improve on how I fish my missus keeps on saying why don't you go back to how you used to do it and lately I have like swingtip and slider float ect; and having some moderate success so hence the quote also she says kiss I guess we all know what that means. jon

I think you overlooked Baggers point about swingtipping and the use of the slider float Andy

Sat next to a lad on my last match who used a swing tip, he had no problem catching.

Like every adage, it has it's exact opposite - if it ain't broke, don't fix it, but if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you always got. For me it's a balance. You have to look for new things, but don't change things just for the sake... In terms of looking back, I spent most of last summer trotting a stick float down the River Derwent catching roach. It was brilliant, so there is definitely much to be said for going back to some simple things (albeit that plenty of people have no idea how to trot a stick...(and far from being expert at it myself!))

What a perfect thread for what the AT have just done to Fishomania. It wasn't broken so certainly didn't need any fixing
