■ Always apply line sinkant when fishing at full depth.
■ Apply silicone spray, or some Mucilin, to the line when fishing on the surface.
■ Use a float that is heavy enough to reach the required distance without struggling on the cast. ■ Chop and change the hook lengths and hook sizes until you get bites.
■ When the wind gets up, add more depth to your float, and in really windy conditions use a flat-topped waggler rather than an insert one.
■ Keep your feeding little, but often.
