KEEP ONE EYE ON THE BIRDS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

IT MIGHT sound odd, but if a swan (which are ag­gres­sive and ter­ri­to­rial birds) looks like it’s fol­low­ing a fish that’s swim­ming just un­der the sur­face, then that’s ex­actly what’s hap­pen­ing.

Sim­i­larly, if a coot sud­denly pops up in a dis­tressed state, look­ing anx­iously at the wa­ter be­low and stamp­ing its feet, it has prob­a­bly just been dis­turbed by a carp.

Also, watch gulls and ducks as they fly over a lake to see if they spook any carp cruis­ing just be­low the sur­face.
