3 - KNOW WHAT YOU ARE FISH­ING OVER – FEEL THE LEAD DOWN

Angling Times (UK) - - UNDERWATER SPECIAL -

Know­ing what you are fish­ing over is vi­tal, and one very good rea­son for hit­ting the clip!

Casts into the un­known are of­ten a recipe for disas­ter. It could be re­ally shal­low/deep or there could be weed, snags or any man­ner of prob­lems be­low the sur­face.

If you don’t feel your lead down you won’t find out un­til it’s too late.

Within a cou­ple of casts feel­ing the lead down you can es­tab­lish the depth, type of bot­tom and weed sit­u­a­tion, and that will help with rigs and pre­sen­ta­tion.

It’s an ab­so­lute must in my mind.

Lead­ing around tells you a lot.
