Mar­ginal chance of carp

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Your Letters -

Don’t you need a spe­cial rod or pole, with fancy floats and rigs set up for mar­gin fish­ing for carp? I think not! The mar­gins at the end of the match are usu­ally the get-out-of-jail-free cards for match an­glers, with carp ap­pear­ing to come to you with­out much real ef­fort in the mar­gins ei­ther side of the peg. How­ever, I have been do­ing this with great suc­cess, and much to my de­light, with­out a pole in sight! So why spend thou­sands on mar­gin equip­ment to use for this sit­u­a­tion when, with a sim­ple quick change bead and a prepre­pared mar­gin rig (sim­ple float and hair rig hook) with a fat den­drobaena on the end, I can eas­ily swing the rig in near the sides and reap the re­wards of sim­ple mar­gin fish­ing?
