Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

At this time of year large shoals of hun­gry carp will feed within a few me­tres of the bank, and a fairly heavy and sta­ble float is re­quired to dif­fer­en­ti­ate proper bites from line bites. A pat­tern with a thick plas­tic tip, a rugby ball-shaped body and car­bon stem is ideal for the job. The size of the float you use de­pends on the depth of wa­ter you have in front of you, but a 4x14 will work in calm con­di­tions in up to 5ft of wa­ter, with a 4x16 bet­ter for be­tween 6ft and 8ft of wa­ter.
