TOP 5 TIPS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

1

Do not feed hemp, as it puts the bar­bel hard on the bot­tom. For the same rea­son use light­weight carp pel­lets, not trout pel­lets.

2

Adam favours white mag­gots, as they are more vis­i­ble to fish than any other colour.

3

Keep feed­ing on a reg­u­lar ba­sis – lit­tle and of­ten is the key to draw­ing fish to you.

4

Vary the depth. Start shal­low and grad­u­ally go deeper un­til you are trip­ping bot­tom. Oc­ca­sion­ally hold the float back so the hook­bait wafts en­tic­ingly in the flow.

5

Mend the line prior to it hit­ting the hotspot so the bait is pre­sented per­fectly. Stay in con­tact at all timed and don’t al­low a large bow to form.
