COLOUR

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

I al­ways carry a tub con­tain­ing a mix­ture of dif­fer­ent coloured hook­baits with me and it is sur­pris­ing how of­ten the fish will show a dis­tinct pref­er­ence for one colour over an­other.

Bright baits, such as white, pink and yel­low, will of­ten bring a quick re­sponse, but you might have to wait a bit longer for a bite on a dark red or brown bait, but these can of­ten be from bet­ter fish.

If one colour stops work­ing but you are still get­ting line-bites you can of­ten catch an ex­tra fish or two by chang­ing bait colour. If your tip re­mains mo­tion­less, though, it is more likely that the fish have moved off.
