AMER JAWAD’S TOP TIPS
Feed a small quantity of hemp over the float every 30 seconds. It sinks quickly and bleak won’t tend to bother with it, but roach will!
When using a lighter rig, go for a pencil-shaped float that will help you to spot every bite from shy-biting silvers.
Plumb around carefully to find a clear spot. If you are over dense weed, presentation will be difficult and you will spend more time pulling for a break than hooking fish.
A fairly long shanked hook with a fine wire is ideal when fishing maggot or caster hookbaits. I use a Tubertini Series 2 for this type of fishing.
