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.
