Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

Brown­ing’s James Hall TAC­TICS: “I start a ses­sion by fish­ing short, just a few me­tres out us­ing pel­lets, and feed a line fur­ther out where I would look to catch shal­low – carp and F1s in par­tic­u­lar.” TACKLE: “For my deck rig I use 0.18mm Brown­ing Hy­brid Power main­line with a 0.14mm hook­legth of the same. Float is an AS1 0.5g and hook a size 16 Guru MWG.

“My shal­low rig uses the same lines, but the float is a Tez Naulls Shal­low 0.1g and the hook a size 16 MWG.” BAIT: “The fish­ery’s own pel­lets are by far the best bait on Merry’s.

“I use them in the hard va­ri­ety, feed­ing 6mm ver­sions close in and 4mm pel­lets fur­ther out on the far line, and fish­ing the same size in a bait band for both.”
