reading a quiver tip


Recommended Posts

I did suggest having nothing on the hook and nothing in the feeder at the same time ,this would eliminate the fish aspect but bring to the fore any other forces effecting the tip ( feeder rolling in current ,slight bow in line flapping and current twitching the line if taught or semi floating leaves hitting the line etc)

Once you get a feel for those effects anything else above and beyond should be the fish or perhaps crayfish who just love to frick about with feeders!

At least as the water cools fish frenzy (fish hitting the feeder or line bites) should lessen but even a shoal of gudgeon can cause mayhem once the get interested and fight for the food exiting the feeder

The rattles are fish attacking the feeder- full stop.   I know this from fishing both method and block end maggot feeders on Stillwaters. It's amplified when using 2mm pellets as feed on the method

Hi FT. Not all indications on the tip are caused by fish biting especially on a river.   Rattles are sometimes bites but can also be caused by a fish simply running into your line - these are call

Back in my match fishing days on the Thames, we used to fish with the rod pointing down stream, with a bow in the line used to balance the weight of the feeder. Any movement of the bait from a fish wo

Good point, I missed that. Thanks
