WATCH FOR BITE TIMES

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

I AM a mas­sive be­liever in tim­ing ev­ery cast in the cold. The main rea­son for this is that even on the cold­est of days, pro­vided I can get a bite or two, there will al­most cer­tainly be a pat­tern to how long the feeder has been in the wa­ter when a bite oc­curs.

Once you start to see a pat­tern emerg­ing, you can use this in­for­ma­tion to fish more ef­fi­ciently. If most bites are com­ing be­tween 8-10 min­utes then there is no rea­son to leave the feeder out for 20 min­utes.

Next time you’re out, try tim­ing ev­ery cast and I bet that be­fore long you will start to see a pat­tern emerg­ing which you will be able to then use to your ad­van­tage.
