Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

1 If you are miss­ing a lot of bites, strike a split se­cond quicker. This will give the fish less time to eject the hook­bait and lead to more sil­vers be­ing hooked.

2 Start by fish­ing at dead depth but shal­low up a cou­ple of inches if you are strug­gling. This will take the hook­bait out of any silt when it is on the bot­tom and make it more no­tice­able.

3 Choose a swim that has lots of open wa­ter to at­tack. Carp of­ten hug the fea­tures, and the sil­vers will avoid th­ese spots to en­able them to feed with­out in­ter­fer­ence.

4 When us­ing an insert wag­gler, carry a range of dif­fer­ent coloured tips with you. This will en­able you to switch and see the float in any light con­di­tions.

5 Use a 13ft rod with a soft tip to help you pick the line up quickly and give you ev­ery chance of hit­ting even the most finicky of bites.
