Tommy Pick­er­ing’s Tip of the Week.

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

BE­ING able to cast a long way is a use­ful skill to have.

You need to be able to present a rig where the fish are, and some­times this is a long way out from the bank. With cooler weather on the way fish will start to move fur­ther out.

A 60-70 yard cast is a long way on stan­dard match gear and once you start go­ing here and be­yond it’s time for fairly spe­cialised tackle and tech­niques.

Don’t over-gun it, how­ever, be­cause if your rods are too stiff you are likely to suf­fer a lot of hook pulls.
