5 - WEED PROB­LEM

Angling Times (UK) - - UNDERWATER SPECIAL -

Weed can make our fish­ing life very dif­fi­cult, but if you know what sort of weed it is you can have a pretty good guess at how to get round it.

I’m not one of those “smash a PVA bag into the weed… it’ll be all right” sorts of an­gler but I have seen some rigs that have been very well weeded up still be­ing taken. In our mind’s eye we paint a pic­ture of the bot­tom, and when we are map­ping out our swims. weed can trip us up.

It’s prob­a­bly best to at least triple the amount that you think there is, just to be on the safe side.
