WORK YOUR SWIM

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

Of­ten bites will come in flur­ries, with two or three fish fol­lowed by pe­ri­ods of in­ac­tiv­ity. This sug­gests to me that the fish are mov­ing around and not set­tling to feed. If you can use two rods it is al­ways worth keep­ing one on the banker spot, while mov­ing the other around the swim. Give it any­thing up to an hour be­fore try­ing a dif­fer­ent spot. With this rod use just the hook­bait with a small PVA stick at­tached, as you don’t want to be spread­ing bait all around the swim.

The big­ger carp can of­ten be eas­ier to catch in win­ter.
