Think I will be trying this tomorrow.
Just taken delivery of some eddystone eels.
Sat Dec 27, 2008 11:19 pm
definitely worth it...

I was out today. Just fishing deceiver flies. Fishing was very poor , so I didn't bother trying the eels.
Managed 1 pollock/coalie when it was too dark to see what it was.

1 fish on the fly rod is worth ?????? many on any other tackle.

depends on the species.

Tried rubber sandeels today. No luck. But then I had no luck on the bait rod either, so it's not really a test.
Wed Dec 31, 2008 9:39 pm
mite work beter in summer.

I fished with the eddystone blue & white one over a sand bank and cought bass on them so they do work on a beach .
This was in September I'm not too sure if sand eel are seasonal though!!

bait fishing with them are good at this time of year.

had these cheap eddystone eel type of things when I was out fishing once. one of the guys I was fishing with cut the tail off one of them to stop it spinning cast it with his flyfishing gear and caught a bass. so yeah once you can present it in a believable way it should work

probably chucks up some seatrout, pollack, coalies and possibly cod or gurnards if you can get them close enough to the bottom.

Have tried these and use them all the time as a teaser when plugging. You have to use very small ones or they become a pain to cast. Have a look at http://www.mikeladle.com/tackle/tackle03.html
. Mike is a super bass man and although he uses all methods he does all his fly fishing using a rubber eel. My humble opinion is that you may be better off when using the fly rod to stick to a tied sandeel pattern rather than a rubber eel, easier to cast and easier to fish in a lifelike way. There are loads of usefull patterns out there but if anyone is stuck let me know and I will try to help
