HOW DO YOUR RIGS WORK UNDERWATER?
Underwater cameras give Dr Paul Garner a whole new perspective on baits from a carp’s point of view
T all started with a chance conversation down the pub. How I could I get to see what actually happens to our baits and tackle underwater?
INow, almost a decade later, I have amassed a huge archive of images and video of what really goes on when we cast out.

Often this filming actually gets in the way of my fishing, rather than giving me an unfair advantage, but the lessons learned have massively influenced my approach.
Here are some of what I consider my most significant findings...
