2 - AL­WAYS FISH ON THE BACK OF A DROP-OFF, NEVER TO THE FRONT OF IT

Angling Times (UK) - - UNDERWATER SPECIAL -

Line lay, es­pe­cially close to the rig, is im­por­tant, and get­ting it right can make the dif­fer­ence be­tween catch­ing and scar­ing them off.

Ide­ally you will know what you are fish­ing over, and if it’s out in the pond you should be fish­ing a tight line. If the bot­tom is drop­ping away back to­wards you, the line will be ob­vi­ous – if it is fall­ing away from you, it will be much bet­ter con­cealed.

Fish­ing just over the back of a bar gives a much bet­ter pre­sen­ta­tion. Weed beds, drop-offs, humps and changes in the bot­tom of the lake all af­fect the way that the line lays on the deck .

Line lay can make or break your ses­sion.
