What did seem to work on the day was chop­ping and chang­ing my hook­baits.

I fished wafters for much of the match, and al­though my first carp fell to the trusted or­ange, af­ter that I had fish on yel­low, pink and pel­let-coloured baits. It was ac­tu­ally quite bizarre. Every time I changed the colour I had a pull, yet rarely did I have two bites in suc­ces­sion on the same colour. Maybe I should have changed colour every cast to keep the fish guess­ing!

Hook­bait choice can make a mas­sive dif­fer­ence and even if you aren’t get­ting bites, as I wasn’t, it can be well worth mix­ing things up just to see what hap­pens.

I tried three shades of dyed hook­bait.
