Jigga? It’s not for me!

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I LOVE catch­ing fish as much as the next man but I don’t like the ‘catch at all costs’ men­tal­ity that some an­glers have.

Get­ting a few bites calls upon all the skills you have de­vel­oped over the years, but some seem de­ter­mined to fill their keep­nets in a way that doesn’t test their in­tel­li­gence, only their stamina.

Steve Ringer is a phe­nom­e­nal an­gler who could catch a huge weight in his sleep, but I didn’t like the look of the Jigga float he was ex­plain­ing in the last is­sue.

It was ba­si­cally a self-hook­ing rig, and to my mind strik­ing at the ap­pro­pri­ate time or try­ing to pick out line bites from gen­uine in­di­ca­tions is a big part of the en­joy­ment of the sport.

When us­ing a Jigga you could lit­er­ally sit there and keep your eyes closed and just wait to feel the elas­tic come out!

It’s clearly a deadly tac­tic but it’s def­i­nitely not for me. Mitch Holmes, Grays
