TOP 5

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

1 Don’t be tempted to cast two or more lines into the same mar­ginal spot. The chances of a carp know­ing some­thing is wrong will in­crease dra­mat­i­cally.

2 Fish­ing the mar­gin al­lows you to bait on a lit­tle and of­ten ba­sis, so har­vest the swim. Put enough in each time to win a bite, and do it ev­ery time you catch a fish.

3 Think about line man­age­ment and do every­thing you can to stop the carp touch­ing mono. This might mean keep­ing it slack or the an­gle it en­ters the swim.

4 On a clean hard sub­strate I pre­fer to fish a bot­tom bait – use pop-ups for weed and silt.

5 When fish­ing a sin­gle rod make sure it’s tan­gle-free. Tub­ing or lead­core, a semi stiff hook-length ma­te­rial and dis­solv­able foam all help.
