Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

Colmic-backed Chris Telling BAIT: “I place worms, cast­ers, corn and pel­lets into a bait tub and then chop them all up finely to make a mush which I feed as small balls. On the hook I al­ter­nate be­twen worms, cast­ers and mag­gots.” TAC­TICS: “Feed­ing small balls reg­u­larly on the short line will keep the bites com­ing. For the far-bank line feed pel­lets and corn to catch carp.” TACKLE: “I don’t fish too light, so I can land any carp I hook. A 2.3mm Colmic hol­low elas­tic, which is roughly the equiv­a­lent of a grade 12-14, is ideal. I fish this along with 0.168mm Colmic Spi­der main­line to a 0.145mm Stream hook­length and a size 16 WN501 hook.”
