MY ALL ROUND RIG

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

THERE is noth­ing I can’t do with this float! I carry them in sizes from 4x10 up to 4x16, cov­er­ing me for meat, corn, hard pel­lets and even mag­gots and cast­ers! The Steady fea­tures a rugby ball -shaped body, a wire stem which aids sta­bil­ity, and a short bris­tle.

For gen­eral carp­ing on meat and corn I al­ways make them up on 0.17mm Guru N-Gauge, then add a 6ins hook­length of 0.15mm N-Gauge on the bank.

A size 16 LWG hook com­pletes the set-up. You may have no­ticed I have opted for a 6ins hook­length on the Steady. This helps give the hook­bait a bit more move­ment, which I like in deeper wa­ter.

Shot­ting is a strung bulk of No 10s with the bot­tom shot 6ins from the hook and the rest of the drop­pers spaced at 1.5ins in­ter­vals above this. The loosely strung bulk helps to give a slower fall of the hook­bait – im­por­tant for meat and corn as the fish sit off bot­tom and then fol­low the hook­bait down.
