ONE of the keys to successful feeder fishing is accuracy. You are trying to build a swim by casting to the same spot every time.
So whether it’s carp or bream fishing, using the line clip on your reel is a must.
To ensure accuracy I like to use the clip on the reel and then pick a marker on the opposite bank.
By casting at the marker and using the line clip I can be sure I’m landing my feeder bang on the money every cast and building up bait in the swim.
A lot of anglers worry about hooking a big fish and losing it due to the line clip. To avoid this happening I cast and then stop the rod behind my head.
Now, when I put the rod down, I can get four or five turns of line back on the reel, which gives me something to play with should I hook a fish that decides to run.
