LET THE BAIT FALL SLOWLY

Angling Times (UK) - - THE COACH -

“AT MILL House the carp seem to watch the bait and feed fall and then take it just as it set­tles. I’ll trickle in a dozen mi­cros and lay the rig in over the top, ex­pect­ing a bite within 60 sec­onds.

“If not, I lay the rig in again and wait another minute be­fore ship­ping in and re­peat­ing. My rig fea­tures a strung shot­ting pat­tern with a Mal­man Roob float tak­ing be­tween 4x12 to 4x16 de­pen­dent on the wind.

“The lighter float has strung shot but on a heav­ier rig, these are spaced slightly closer to­gether for bet­ter pre­sen­ta­tion, leav­ing around 2cm of float tip show­ing. I also never fish overdepth be­cause you can miss a lot of bites from carp.”

My float choice is a Mal­man Roob.
