MY TOP TIPS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

1 Con­di­tions might not al­ways be per­fect but you can still win a bite – ap­proach­ing a trip con­fi­dently is half the bat­tle. 2 If chub are the quarry and you are us­ing a hair rig, make sure you keep it short. 3 Us­ing a tung­sten putty weight 2ins away from the hook will help to pull the point home in the fish’s mouth.

4 Don’t al­low a back lead to fall to the bot­tom ran­domly. Feel the main lead down and then, keep­ing a taut line, place the back lead where you want it be­fore al­low­ing it to sink. 5 Clear wa­ter de­mands po­larised glasses and a peaked cap – I would rather leave my bait be­hind than these.
