  • Line clipping

    Ive been fishing a venue that has a total of 73 permanent pegs split into 4 canals by a series of islands, every peg to an island at a distance of 16-19m. The lake has a uniform level bottom of between of 5'6" and 6' depth and a near and far side shelf.

    Fish stocks are already very high, however, further stocking is proposed in early March 2007. Present stock fish are mostly Mirror and Common Carp, with an average weight of 12oz to 2lb although this is increasing rapidly. There is a good sprinkling of Carp between the 7-10lb range with the best fish weighed in a match of 13lb 3oz. You will also find a good head of Tench averaging 2-3.5lb and a large number of silver fish to be caught on smaller baits including Rudd, Roach, Skimmers and Perch.

    I watched the Tom Pickering video on youtube and he fished a similar venue to this at White Acres and explained that he line clipped so he hit the far bank every single time, what size lead do you use to clip up?? Im am using the Drennan Carp Feeder rod and Shimarno match reel with 6lb mainline, the way he explained it is you tie the lead to the end of the line and start casting lifting the rod to the horizontal position as it hits the water, then clip up with the rod still in that position, so when you drop the rod down you get a little slack line to put a couple of turns onto the reel.

    thanks in advance for any help and advice.

    It is best to use a bomb that is the same weight as the feeder you are casting,so the actual casting action/motion is the same.if you use heavier leads/weights to fish with,than you are clipping up with.the extra weight combined with line stretching when clipped up could put you in far bank weeds,trees etc.

      1oz bomb, you will never need anything else and it stretches the line nicely.

          shouldnt matter what weight you use or feeder as long as you hold the rod in the same place as it hits the clip and cast the same strength every time you should land in the same place.....cast short then peel a few reels of line off each time after recasting clipped up until you reach the distance you want then is just a matter of matching everything every time you cast...practice makes perfect.....with method feeders when they land you dont want to move them so if you hold the rod up you can reel down to the rest gently after feeder as settled where as if you rod is held forward when it hots the clip you will move the feeder as you pull it to your rest ....hope that helps
