TOP 5 TIPS

Angling Times (UK) - - MARTIN BOWLER: ANGLING ADVENTURES -

1 If you have never sea fished, give it a go on hol­i­day this sum­mer with your carp gear. This could mean a mul­let in the es­tu­ary, a wrasse from the rocks or a bass be­tween the surf – there are many op­por­tu­ni­ties. 2 Don’t fish too heavy for black bream. Carp hooks are per­fect, just add a cou­ple of small flu­o­res­cent beads to the hook­length for vis­ual stim­u­la­tion. 3 Try an open-end feeder with a fishy ground­bait in the sea. With such an ex­panse of wa­ter, any­thing to draw the at­ten­tion of fish in the area is a help. 4 I soak my mix­ers in Sticky’s Cap Oil. The slick flat­tens the sur­face and en­cour­ages a feed­ing re­sponse. 5 When float­fish­ing for sum­mer chub don’t go too light. It’s bet­ter to feed them un­til they lose cau­tion than get an early bite and spook the shoal.
