THE EX­PERT’S VIEW

JAMES TURNER

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

TO get fish go­ing on the sur­face there’s noth­ing bet­ter than giv­ing them a bit more than your av­er­age dog bis­cuit. I pre­pare my floaters at the start of spring, so they are nicely ma­tured in time for mid-sum­mer.

First, I fill a few buck­ets with mixers and add a gen­er­ous help­ing of liq­uid to each one. My favourites are hemp oil, salmon oil and L030T. Then I leave the mixers to soak for two days while they take on the liq­uid, shak­ing them up now and again to en­sure they all get a good cov­er­ing. Then it’s in with the Pure Krill Pow­der. Again, shak­ing them up en­sures they all get a good coat­ing.

As of April my bucket of floaters is in the car at all times – you never know when you may need them. When they are in­tro­duced, the slick they kick off is im­mense and the Krill Pow­der takes to the wa­ter with bits of at­trac­tion both float­ing and slowly sink­ing.

The flat spot cre­ated helps me to see the fish, but a qual­ity pair of po­larised glasses is ab­so­lutely es­sen­tial as well.

This is peak time for a sur­face fish­ing cam­paign.

Look at the slick kicked off, along with bits of Krill sus­pended in the wa­ter.

What carp could pos­si­bly re­sist th­ese oil-laden lit­tle balls of love­li­ness?

With th­ese in­gre­di­ents you’re ready to make your own high-at­tract floaters.

Ab­so­lute es­sen­tials for sur­face fish­ing – catty, peaked cap and po­larised specs.
