TIME YOUR BITES

Angling Times (UK) - - STEVE RINGER: STILLWATER SECRETS -

AT THE start of a match I will look to cast ev­ery five min­utes to build the swim up and get some bait down – I use my old watch (above) for this, and I would strug­gle with­out it.

I also like to time my bites, so I nor­mally use a stop­watch and press the ‘start’ but­ton as soon as I cast out. Then, if get a bite, I have a quick look at the watch to see how long the feeder has been in the wa­ter. More of­ten than not, a pat­tern will emerge and I can then ad­just the fre­quency of my cast­ing to make the most of this.
