THE RIGS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

MY FAVOURITE float for long lin­ing on rivers is the DH16 (above). This float runs from 0.20g to 4g and the best sizes on my Strat­ford day were 0.8g, which I made up with strun­gout No8 shots, and 1g, which was shot­ted with a 1g olivette and a sin­gle No8 drop­per.

Main­lines on both rigs were 0.14mm, which al­lowed me to use 0.10mm and later, 0.12mm hook­lengths.

Hooks were size 18 and size 16 Dren­nan Car­bon Match.
