Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

It is al­most im­pos­si­ble to con­cen­trate roach on the deck as they will come up and down in the wa­ter col­umn to feed. In or­der to give my­self a chance of catch­ing them at ev­ery level I use a strung out shot­ting pat­tern which slows the fall of the hook­bait. More of­ten than not, the fish are sat in the bot­tom half of the wa­ter col­umn so I have the shot slightly closer the fur­ther up the rig I go. This gets it through the top layer a lit­tle quicker but gives any lin­ger­ing fish a chance.

The fur­ther up the rig, the less the gap is between shot The last shot should sit just above the hook­length
