8 - SOUND – THE SE­CRET SENSE

Angling Times (UK) - - UNDERWATER SPECIAL -

We know that carp have great hear­ing, but we only use that knowl­edge in a neg­a­tive way, keep­ing quiet on the bank “in case they hear us”. Us­ing sound is a fan­tas­tic way to at­tract carp into our swim and get them to feed, es­pe­cially where they are used to noise. Make a noise they like and they will come to you, one they don’t and they will scarper. Ask any match an­gler who fishes for carp in the sum­mer just how ef­fec­tive the pel­let wag­gler is. The noise of the pel­lets at­tracts the fish, a prime ex­am­ple of pos­i­tive sound work­ing to our ad­van­tage.

Carp are at­tracted to cer­tain noises.
