I was going to say...

just below waist deep in me wadders!! :D :D:D

but I would be lying! :(

I have had a set of those rod (or very similar) for nearly 3 years now.

I would be lost without them!

but there are the odd 1% or 2% of situations where you need alternative methods!

I stick the beers in the keep net and spend a relaxing day away from life.

Is this the type of fishing we're talking about? :p

On a serious note.

With false ceilings I find trunking the best way. I don't like the plastic or metal coils in conduit but haven't found a good alternative yet.

Rods are handy but tend to snap at inconvenient times! X(

I used to have a pet mouse, never could train it to pull a bit of string under the floor!

Seriously though, I've always used stiff galv. wire to do my fishing. I suppose it could touch something live, but never has happened yet.

You have to be careful not to catch up on an existing cable, and pull it, thinking its the one you are trying to catch.
