Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

This rig can also be used to lay a dead­bait on the bot­tom and fish it static.

Start by set­ting the slid­ing float stop about 2ft overdepth (al­though in deeper wa­ter this may need to be in­creased a lit­tle to al­low for the greater drag on the float be­cause of flow in a river or un­der­tow on a still­wa­ter).

Where there is some flow or un­der­tow the float will cock, but in calm con­di­tions it will lie flat.

As soon as a pike picks up the bait the float will cock and then dis­ap­pear from view.

My pike rig is very ver­sa­tile.
