ALL-ROUNDER

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

THE wire-stemmed DH11 comes in sizes from 0.5g to 4g and it’s the per­fect all-rounder for a va­ri­ety of jobs. It’s as much at home with pinkie or bread­punch as it is with mag­gots and cast­ers or seed baits such as hemp and tares.

The smaller sizes from 0.5g to 1.5g fea­ture 1.2mm ny­lon bris­tles, which are per­fect for de­tect­ing the shyest of bites from small fish.

Th­ese rigs are fished at dead depth, just off bot­tom or slightly overdepth, and are made up on 0.12mm main­lines.

In the big­ger 2g, 3g and 4g sizes the bris­tle is 1.5mm, which is the most com­mon di­am­e­ter I tend to use for most of my pole floats on rivers.
