DON’T STRIKE HARD!

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

Get­ting a big fi­fish to take the bait is just part of the job and once the tip has gone round it is how you re­act next that will dic­tate whether you win the bat­tle. “You’ll want to strike firmly when the tip goes round but you need to re­sist this in­stinct. Just pick up the rod and start wind­ing. “If a big fish is run­ning in the op­po­site di­rec­tion and you strike hard, there is ev­ery chance you will get snapped, even on tough tackle.” “The rig is set up so that the fish hook them­selves so that no strike is re­quired.”
