USE BIG-EYED TIPS

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

I DO a lot of long range feeder fish­ing at cer­tain times of the year, and hav­ing the right rod for the job is es­sen­tial.

But per­haps more im­por­tant still is to use a rod with the right kind of quiv­er­tip.

When fish­ing at range I use a shock­leader, and when you are giv­ing the feeder a proper whack, if the rings on the tip are too small a crack-off is in­evitable.

Big­ger rings stop this hap­pen­ing, as the knot be­tween the shock­leader and your main­line or braid passes through the eyes with ease, even when the rod blank is un­der full com­pres­sion.
