Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

Lo­cal ex­pert Rus­sell Ship­ton says: Tackle: “Use strong, re­li­able tackle to land qual­ity carp – 0.20mm main­line to an 0.18mm hook­length and a size 12 hook for paste, or size a 14 for banded pel­let. A red NG Twin Core elas­tic rated 14-16 will get fish in quickly, with a 0.3g NG Paste Decker pro­vid­ing the nec­es­sary sta­bil­ity.” Bait: “Keep the feed to a min­i­mum. Lower your rig in and feed just a pinch of 6mm pel­lets. Carp will seek out your hookbait quickly and lead to an in­stant bite.” Tac­tics: “Start in front of you in the deeper wa­ter but if foul­hooked fish be­come a prob­lem, switch to the shal­low­est wa­ter tight to the bank. Leave plenty of float bris­tle show­ing to help you tell lin­ers from bites.”
