Lucky Sod.
Do you know if your fishing the left or right of the swim? the reason I ask is the right is a lot easier than the left for all the Rainbow furniture, if your on the right really all you need is bottles floats I personally try not to use them at Rainbow unless it's absolutely necessary, if your on the left you will want the full shebang.

Avid bottle floats are available these days which a lot use now or you make your own with some pop top bottles and pole elastic for pennies, Hooks size 1, 2 or 4 if it's not a desperately snaggy swim, I have used Nash Twisters, Ashima Goliath, Carp R Us Centurions Or Fox size 1 wide gape X, a lot still use Solar 101's but I find them a bit springy in the wire personally but that doesn't discount the thousands of carp that get caught on them there, last trip I used PB's Jungle Hooks in a size 2 they do them in a size 1 as well (always trying new hooks out at Rainbow as it is the ultimate test for any hook).

Braid your choice but I prefer sinking in 40/50lb test, mono leader again your choice 45 to 60lb is good enough, I use PB products 45lb shield personally, leadless plenty out there for me PB again, this is no advertisement for PB they just make products that are better suited for Rainbow a European company with products suited for fishing bigger wilder environments.

The front/right side of the swim is easy to fish in comparison to the left, dont forget to take a toilet it's not like the rest of the swims where most anglers **** in the woods behind them, dirty *******s.

Rainbow is a beast of its own! I'd advise getting on YouTube and getting some research done on there.

Hi all,

I'm fishing at Rainbow lake in November on the island for a week, I was really hoping that there might be somebody on here that may be able to give me a bit of advice on how to fish it.

I was lucky enough to go on three trips there in the past but the last one was about 5 yrs ago, so I have forgot more than I learnt back then.

Hooks, leads, hook link, braided line, floats, hooks for the trees, the list goes on, there is so much new kit about now

And don't get me started on what bait to take
