TIP 2 –

PICK THE RIGHT POLE ELAS­TIC

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

MY IDEAL choice of elas­tic is a No5 or No6 Brown­ing Hy­brid la­tex. You don’t want to use too light an elas­tic or y*ou won’t be able to swing fish in, plus a No6 will give you a fight­ing chance of land­ing any big­ger bonus fish.

I’d only use a lighter No3 or No4 elas­tic if I was fish­ing a river or drain for tiny fish with lit­tle hooks. I’m a big fan of la­tex elas­tic – it’s very soft and for­giv­ing in the first few feet but it pow­ers up to en­able small fish to come in com­fort­ably to hand.

A No6 la­tex is perfect for land­ing any big­ger bonus fish.
