A very nice flight the other lunch time , not a lot of wind but a 6 mtr tide was going to cover the marsh.
Where I was shooting was not a long way in wildfowling distances to back the sea wall but once it covers you route back then even in the day light your footing on narrow paths are easy lost.
Chip my spaniel swam over the creek several times and is learning to avoid the decoys!!
4 decoyed very nicely with the other 3 had me twisting around on my knees..
My rig set up allows a quick set up and retrieve so as the water was close to covering the route back Chip and I bailed out to drier ground...
All ways the one to sort out a better method for my liking I made up my rigs to suit me...
Loosely based on float ledgering method the lead decoy floats up to the stop knot while the others are fixed to the line with small carabineer clips, they give me the choice to swap out decoys.
I usually throw groups of 3 out in front then put a set of 4 in a pool close by as it easy to manage.
