TOP 5 TIPS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

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.
