  • tip fishing

    As a matter of interest!! that when fishing the tip on a windy day the wind blowing against the exposed line sets up a vibration that travels to the hook and may just put the fish off ?? i think it may do so! any takers on this?? as i think so, i keep my tip as close to the surface as possible, surrounding conditions allowing.

    You could try a target board to defllect some of the wind.

      I find puting the tip 2in under the water makes all the difrence, but you need a bright tip to see it well

        i dont think that the wind makes any difference at all the vibration caused by the wind is very small and by no means enough to effect your hookbait taking into account the distance you may fish at you have more chance of movement of your hookbait as fish grub around your baited area looking for your hookbait this movement is more of an advantage to you as fish will often take your bait as it moves in front of there faces regards john rhodes

          you could always fit a polaris sidewinder to the butt end, sinking the tip under water. I use this method on very windy days, and you get a much better indication by pointing the rod directly at the feeder anyway.

            The vibration will travel down to the leger/feeder, and no further. Assuming you've tightened up to the weight.....

              putting the tip just below the surface is the answer
