TRAVEL LIGHT

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

HOW many times have you gone fish­ing loaded to the brim with gear, only to see a guy with the most ba­sic kit catch­ing loads of fish?

I’m as guilty as the next man for tak­ing every­thing bar the kitchen sink to the bank, but Martin Bowler’s col­umn this week has got me think­ing that a dif­fer­ent at­ti­tude may pay div­i­dends.

On pres­sured wa­ters where the lakebed is like the spokes of a cy­cle wheel – with lines cross­ing ev­ery inch – it can pay to give the fish some­where safe to head for where they don’t get spooked.

Martin’s ‘one rod can do the job’ men­tal­ity has cer­tainly been work­ing for him – check out his col­umn to see how to get the best from this fuss-free ap­proach.
