The late show
LAST WEEK I tried to shoot a video, but we got caught out somewhat, simply because the fish all came very, very late in the session, almost at the point where it was too dark to film, to be honest!
A few powerful lights may have made it possible, but we had to admit defeat in the end and plan another day.
Those events prove that fish, in natural waters in particular, will feed when they want to, and at this time of year that is often at dusk.
What’s being caught? It takes a while to bring the fish around, but you can end up with a catch of roach to 10 oz, bream to 1 lb 8 oz, hybrids to 1 lb, with perch and chub. Weights to over 10 lb. Tactics? Try a Bolo’ or big stick float approach, or pole in some slacker swims. Casters are the key to sorting out the quality fish, presented over hemp.
