8 - SOUND – THE SECRET SENSE
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.
