Flooded Rivers

Keep off the skyline when fishing a flooded river. The water may be more coloured than usual, but the fish can still see you. Steve Burke    

Removing Trebles

A pair of long-nosed pliers is far better than forceps for removing treble hooks. Steve Burke  

A Change Is As Good As….

If at first you don't succeed, try something......different. This works far more often than simply waiting for the fish to come on the feed or find your bait. If fishing more than one rod you can keep one static and experiment with others. Steve Burke  

Chewed Maggots

If you get chewed maggots move the bottom shot or ledger weight nearer to the hook. Steve Burke  

Mesh Size

Use a net with large mesh when pike fishing or whenever you use treble hooks. With small mesh nets trebles get horribly tangled. Steve Burke
