• After investigating the Magic Twig self hooking device we feel that based on concerns for the fish safety we will be banning this item of tackle on all of our lakes. We feel the sprung Magic Twig rigid prongs are a potential for snagging. We appreciate this is a subjective opinion and not everyone will feel the same however until we have reason to feel the Magic Twig is not a snagging risk we will readdress. Thank you for respecting our rules.
