Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

MANY swims on clear rivers are ru­ined in the first half-hour of a ses­sion. This is a crit­i­cal time of a match or plea­sure an­gler and it’s im­por­tant to feel your way in steadily rather than feed to try and catch 50lb straight away.

By build­ing your swim up lit­tle and of­ten rather than with big hand­fuls every cast, you will soon start to read what species are feed­ing and if they’re hun­gry.

I al­ways try to feed to re­sponse so if bites keep com­ing, I keep the fed go­ing in, in­creas­ing it slightly as the ses­sion goes on.

Re­mem­ber, you can al­ways put more in but you can’t take it out!

Feed lit­tle and of­ten or you could kill a swim.
