Hi all just a quick question. When i fish on a beach i have my rods & tripod facing the water. Whenever i see some pictures of a match they all have thier rods & tripods side on, what is the benifit???
I think its a natural instinct to face the rod/rods downwind [with the wind at your back rather than in your face]. There will also be a bow in the line created by the wind which will tighten the line up to the lead even though its bowed. So bite registration will be more direct.
Personally i think the fish hook them selves against the resistance of the grip lead and i face down wind for comfort. If you set up a beach shelter you would have it set with the back to the wind.
I very rarely fish with more than one rod . So i have my rod pointing where its most comfortable for me. I find fishing with two rods is far too busy for me .. always changing baits and reeling in and making up more pre-baited traces for the trace bar. I go to relax ... two rods is too much like juggling plates as far as i'm concerned . Don't want to come home knackered. If the fish are there , then one rod keeps me busy enough . Also i wouldn't want an expensive rod dragged off the stand and down the beach while i'm reeling the other one in .
