Paternoster rig – is very sensitive and highly adaptable way of fishing. Consisting of only two parts, one part has the lead attached and the second part has the hook attached. The main purpose of the rig is to offer little or no resistance to a fish as it moves off with the bait. Paternoster rigs are not self hooking, the angler must strike at the right time. Bite registration can be done with a quiver tip, swing tip or touch ledgering. The paternoster is a very good long distance method of fishing, but there is nothing to stop you using it mid range or close in. [Read more…] about Paternoster rig
Glossary of terms is a list of fishing terms and definitions using video, audio, text and pictures. Tips, info and methods included with some meanings.
Crease – Is the boundary between slow and fast running water. Fish will often collect on the slow side of the crease to intercept food bought in on the faster flowing side. Trotting a float down this boundary or ledgering the slow water are often good ways to catch river fish. [Read more…] about Crease – river fishing
Running lead rig – A simple underrated but effective ledgering rig that can be use on lakes and rivers. Particularly good for catching Bream on still waters and Chub in rivers. [Read more…] about Running lead rigs
