TOP 5 TIPS
1For drop shot fishing I fish fluorocarbon, not braid. It’s far simpler and avoids a weak link.
2Use a Palomar knot (below) to attach your hook.
3If you can’t afford a specialist drop shot rod, your quivertip rod will do.
4As the water clears, any form of cover will become highly attractive to all species of fish.
5Ring the changes – there’s no bad lure or colour, just the wrong days to use them.
