There seems to be a new craze sweeping the predator fishing community here in the UK, and it goes by the name of “Drop Shot Fishing” or simply “Drop Shotting”. It is a technique more common to America and Europe, it has taken a while to catch on over here. It is more commonly found in sea fishing but in recent years it is also started to be used inland for course fishing.
The pike is one of the UK’s most notorious and often misunderstood fish, there are tales of Pike attacking all sorts of animals, sheep, dogs and even humans!! This is of course a load of bollocks!
The Pike has become one of my favourite species, I am still new to Pike fishing but the feeling of catching one of these beautiful creatures is in my opinion unbeatable. Carp anglers will disagree I’m sure…
There are a lot of different techniques to catch fish, the traditional method people think of when they hear “course fishing” is the image of an angler sitting watching a float bobbing up and down in the water. But there are other methods which are often more deadly, swim feeder fishing is one of them, this post is part of my feeder fishing tips posts, please read and make a comment below.
There are many ways to catch fish, many different techniques from float fishing, fly fishing, feeder and ledger. Most anglers will try a fair amount of them but recently I have been reading about “pellet waggler” fishing and recently gave it a go at my local commercial fishery, Aldercar Lane in Nottinghamshire.
