5 USE LIGHTER BOMBS
IN COLD water, fish can be very spooky, so staying as quiet as possible on the bank and when casting will stop them spooking away from you.
A lighter, smaller and more discreet bomb or feeder can make all the difference, cast and feathered into the swim as quietly as possible.
A tiny 10g lead makes just a small ‘plop’ on entering the water. Smaller leads are also less visible on the bottom and won’t frighten the fish.
If you’re casting regularly to try and find the fish, think mini and light!
