When should the tip point up or be kept low down?
WHEN should I point my feeder rod up in the air?
Gary Hughes, Broughton
BY POINTING the rod up in the air you’ll keep line off the surface and reduce drag from the current. This way the tip won’t be bent round anywhere near as much.
Having the rod low to the ground is the norm on stillwaters, allowing you to tuck the tip out of harm’s way. So keep the rod low on lakes or slow-flowing rivers, only putting it up in the air on powerful rivers.
Keep your tip high on big, powerful rivers.
