CASTERS FOR HYBRIDS
When it came to hybrids then it was all about casters. We really attacked our pegs early on with casters to try and get off to a flying start. To give you an idea, we looked to feed two pints of casters in the first hour if we got a quick response.
From then on, if bites slowed we might only feed another two pints for the rest of the match.
On several days this attacking start worked a treat, but when bites eased off we reduced the amount of casters we fed to take that into account. You couldn’t pile casters in all day, but attacking the swim early on with casters seemed to pull in a lot of fish.
