Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

Line bites can be frus­trat­ing when fish­ing the mar­gins but these can be re­duced by us­ing a bulk of shot just above the hook­length. I use a rea­son­ably heavy float of at least 4x14 that re­quires plenty of shot which an­chors the hook­bait to the deck and keeps the rig sta­ble when fish start waft­ing their tails around. The bulk also makes hit­ting bites eas­ier and a gen­tle lift is all that is needed due to the bolt rig ef­fect caused by the tight group­ing of the shot.
