POLE RIG

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

Pole fish­ing isn’t of­ten associated with tench. But tench are renowned for be­ing caught in the mar­gins and pole fish­ing of­fers un­ri­valled ac­cu­racy and su­pe­rior pre­sen­ta­tion. You can present a hook­bait di­rectly over the loose­feed and, if you are fish­ing to small holes in the weed, a pole makes life much eas­ier. A com­mer­cial carp set-up is ideal when pole fish­ing for tench. Use size 14-16 hol­low elas­tic com­bined with a 0.19mm main­line and 0.17mm hook­link down to a size 16 wide gape hook. Aim to tar­get the area at the base of the mar­ginal shelf as this is where the ma­jor­ity of the nat­u­ral food ends up and tench love to pa­trol along this route. A small pile of feed placed here will be more than enough to halt them in their tracks and en­cour­age them to feed.
