What’s the knack to feed­ing noth­ing?

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

EX­PERTS at my favourite fish­ery catch lots of carp on the wag­gler close to an is­land but don’t feed a thing – how does this work?

Paul Ful­ton, Burgess Hill

RIGHT now fish will start to shoal up and you need to place the bait in front of them rather than drawn them in.

Cast a loaded wag­gler with no shot close to the is­land and al­low the hook­bait 20-30 sec­onds to sink. If you get no re­sponse, quickly twitch the bait and if the float still doesn’t move, re­cast. Make sure you feed ab­so­lutely noth­ing or you’ll re­duce your chances of your hook­bait be­ing taken.

The idea is to put the hook­bait di­rectly in front of the mouth of a carp, and if you are on a large shoal, this won’t take long at all.

Let the bait sink un­der a loaded wag­gler.
