FLOATS TO BEAT DOWN­STREAM WIND

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

TRUN­CHEON WAG­GLERS

These come in two dif­fer­ent di­am­e­ters, and in sizes from 2AAA up to 5SSG. Al­ways use a float that will cope with the con­di­tions and your pre­sen­ta­tion will be bet­ter, de­spite the weight on the line.

HEAVY BASE STICKS

These might look like reg­u­lar al­loy stemmed sticks but once you’ve used one you will re­alise they are very dif­fer­ent. The 2.4mm aluminium bases are far heav­ier than other al­loy stemmed sticks and the ben­e­fits are many. They cast more eas­ily and, im­por­tantly, when the wind is down­stream you can achieve much bet­ter con­trol as the base of the float helps to keep the stick on line.
