SNAKE LAKE CHARMER

The far bank of snake lakes are al­ways home to stacks of fish at this time of year as the shoals cruise up and down in the shal­low wa­ter.

Once again, a rig that will re­main sta­ble when the fish come into the peg in large num­bers is im­por­tant, and that is why I like to use a rugby ball-shaped float that is short yet fairly heavy.

I have no qualms about us­ing a 4x12 or 4x14 float in as lit­tle as 18ins of wa­ter. The fish will of­ten hook them­selves against the weight of the wire-stemmed float.
