Manufactured from lightweight plastic the Pulla Bung enables the angler to pull the elastic tighter after unshipping the top kit. The advantage is that you can use lighter elastics for small carp, but tighten it for netting if you hook a bonus fish. This means you don’t need to play and net big carp on top 5s or 6s, which leads to better control, faster netting and less pole breakages.
Fitting a Pulla bung
Fitting a Pulla Bung is simple and easy to do. In fact if you normally elasticate your top kits you’ll be able to fit a Pulla Bung.
The Preston Pulla Bung is a brilliant way of landing hard-fighting fish more quickly than on a conventional elastic set-up. This is especially true for bonus fish that are bigger than expected.
As you were
The first thing to say is that you still play the fish as you would normally, it’s only when you unship your top kit that the Pulla Bung really comes into play.
From that moment on, you have the option of increasing the tension on the elastic by pulling some of it through the bung and holding it in the fingers of the hand holding the pole. By pulling some of the elastic through the bung you shorten the length of elastic still in the top kit. This reduces the distance the fish can swim away from you and makes netting much easier.
Reduce Your Elastic
But it isn’t just playing bonus fish quickly that makes the Pulla Bung so useful. You can also reduce the strength of your elastic slightly, or set it with less tension, which leads to less bumped fish, especially when fishing up in the water.
Most of Preston’s consultants reduce the strength of their elastic by one size. Instead of a number 12 solid elastic they use a number 10. For Hollo instead of a size 13 they reduce the elastic to a size 11.
Great For Hollo
The Pulla Bung is also brilliant for Hollo elastics because they are usually more easily stretched and being able to shorten the amount available beats fish really quickly.
Still not convinced? The next time you hook a bigger than expected fish and are trying to net it on a top 4 or 5, think about how easy it would be if you had a top 2 in your hand with less elastic stretching out!
