BOMB SIZE

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

Al­though Jon al­ways re­lies on a free-run­ning rig, he still sets up so that each fish hooks it­self. You could be for­given for think­ing that he uses a heavy bomb to cre­ate that bolt rig ef­fect, but you’d be wrong. “I find that 20g is more than enough for the fish to hook them­selves against the weight of the lead. In windy con­di­tions I will step up to 30g in order to main­tain cast­ing ac­cu­racy. “If you go any heav­ier the lead will bounce up and down when you are play­ing fish, which could lead to hook-pulls.”
