VENUE IN­SIDER

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

Pre­stons star and cur­rent Win­ter League champ Ja­son Collins says: Tackle: “For fish­ing across or down the mar­gins I rec­om­mend the pole. As the weather cools I use a Preston In­no­va­tions 13 hol­low elas­tic to 0.15mm main­line, a 0.13mm hook­link and a size 20 PR36 hook with a small hair­rigged bait band. I like a 4x14 Chi­anti float with a strung-out pat­tern of No10 shot so I get a very nat­u­ral fall of the hook­bait.”

Bait: “I use 4mm or 6mm Sonubaits Fin Per­fect pel­lets straight-out of the bag. If the fish­ing gets tough I’ll use an oiled pel­let on the hook.”

Tac­tics: “On Snake, I use 4mm hard pel­lets across to the far bank. Down the mar­gins or at 5m-6m depth it’s 6mm pel­lets. Don’t feed too many at the start or too heav­ily through­out the ses­sion, as this can kill the swim al­most be­fore you have started.”
