FAR SIDE

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

YOU’LL typ­i­cally find a cou­ple of dif­fer­ent types of area on the far bank of a snake lake. Bare bank: The water can shal­low up to as lit­tle as 12ins tight up to the far side. Many fish­eries main­tain small holes in far-side veg­e­ta­tion, so you can push your pole rig tight up to the bank. These ‘mud lines’ are ideal spots to tar­get in the warmer months when fish are very ac­tive in shal­low water. Reeds and sedges: Fish­ing up to veg­e­ta­tion in water around 2ft deep is per­fect in au­tumn and win­ter when the fish want depth and cover. But in sum­mer you’ll of­ten suf­fer line bites fish­ing in 3ft-4ft of water. In­stead try fish­ing shal­low up to fea­tures, where fish of­ten come up to suck loosefed bait off the reeds.

WHERE TO FISH Tar­get the shal­low­est water here in sum­mer, deeper in win­ter.
