Hi all,


On the pulley rig system,once i have casted out,do i wind in and have a slight bend in the rod tip so i can see bites,

or leave line slack a bit so the fish can run a bit and hook themselves.

:confused:


Many thanks. :D

I tend to leave the line slack(ish), especially if I'm on a high mark - as most times the fish are feeding on the bottom- the snoods I use are fairly short to avoid tangling/snags . The problem with this is that not all bites from small fish are easily noticed.

Personally tighten up till theres a bend, that way if a fish is nibbling away you'll see it giving little pulls or rattles then it should hook itself due to the tension. Or on the other hand if it goes slack then the fish (hopefully a biggie) is swimming towards you with lead, trace and all then you just wind down as fast as you can till you feel a bit of weight then strike into it, if you leave a bit of bend in your line you wont see the slack line bite properlly, hope this helps :)
