TOP FIVE TIPS

IAIN MACMIL­LAN’S

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

1 Don’t stop pre­bait­ing. Many an­glers tend to cut it down as the nights start draw­ing in.

2 I soak my boilies in hemp oil, as it’s one of the best at­trac­tors. Take your baits out of the freezer and they will soak the oil up as they de­frost.

3 Try us­ing a hook­link that’s at least 12ins long when us­ing boilies on the hook, as big carp get used to be­ing caught on shorter ver­sions and have a ten­dency to re­ject the bait.

4 If you’re us­ing three rods, fish at least two with the baits you’ve been feed­ing.

5 Don’t get dis­tracted. Too many an­glers sit back and lis­ten to the ra­dio, watch an iPad or are stuck to the screen on their phone with­out lis­ten­ing and look­ing out for signs of fish.
