Pay attention to the prevailing weather conditions, particularly wind direction and speed and this can affect where you fish and how far you can feed. Make sure you can comfortably feed and fish your chosen lines, if not fish shorter.
Presentation and feeding are the two most important aspects of match fishing; always have them at the forefront of your thoughts and be ready to adapt to keep catching, increase your catch rate or target a better stamp of fish. Don’t be afraid to increase or decrease your feed rates and gauge the response.
Always fill your reels to the lip of the spool, it will aid casting and allow you pay out line easier, particularly when float fishing on running water. Also use G-Float line spray which will improve line control and allow a faster pick up on the strike.
