Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

The Rosie lo­cal ex­pert James Davies says: Tackle: “It pays to fish fairly fine if you want to get bites from ev­ery­thing that swims. I’ll use 0.14mm main­line to ei­ther a 0.12mm or 0.10mm hook­length and a size 16 hook. Use a Pulla Bung to help steer big­ger fish away from the near­side fea­tures.”

Bait: “Mag­gots are great as they al­low you to catch both carp and qual­ity sil­ver­fish. Feed a few 2mm and 4mm pel­lets over the top, though, as these tempt the big­ger spec­i­mens to root around.”

Tac­tics: “Three lines of at­tack will cover all op­tions – a short line at the end of the lilies, long on the pole at about 13m and the wag­gler to the is­land or into open wa­ter for the sil­vers. Ro­tate these and the bites will keep com­ing.”
