Luderick fishing isn't difficult provided you follow a few basic rules. In another article I have talked about getting the correct bait, presenting the bait at the correct depth and the type of gear required to get the float into the correct position.

But, what is the correct position? What makes a good spot, and where do fish hold once you are in that spot? If you can answer these questions, then you have a fighting chance of catching a few luderick.

This article attempts to give the novice some ideas using a few examples.

Grice & Young manufactured a very large range of reels over a long period between 1950 and 1980.

This article seeks to list some of the reels that you may come across that aren't generally suitable for luderick fishing in Australian conditions, but are often available for sale, and could be a good reference for UK anglers.

Most of these reels are designed to have a large amount of heavier line capacity, you can tell this by the wide drum, usually at least 1 inch, and the deep arbour. The arbour posts are usually set well within the diameter of the handles.
