mackerel feathers

OK just thinking out loud here so bear with me.  Could you fish a string of mackerel feathers under a float? And could you  also fish them sink and draw method?

OK if its a daft idea feel free to take the pee... :laugh: .fish.

You could certainly use a sliding float to fish them to a set depth and with the float being sliding you can still impart action to them without moving the float too much.

think just a couple of feathers would be better to use.less to snagup + more chance of landing 2 fish rather than 4-5 on light gear.bullet lead on the bottom {NEW POTATOE}lol,dont forget you could even thread a hook via eye in the spud. smiley-lol.gif.can just see your thread,fish ON chips. happy_days.gif happy_days.gif

I'll try the method when I get a chance and report back. Like the Redgill idea too.
