On the way to work this morning, I made a short detour and had a brief lure session on the Montgomery Canal.
With a busy day ahead, it was just a few minutes, but that’s where lure fishing comes into its own. The rod is made-up and you don’t have to do much before you cast out.
In fact, piece the two rod sections together and you’re ready to go. I only had a few casts this morning and then I was on my way.
I didn’t catch anything, in fact no lunges or plucks. The thing is though, I have been fishing, and as long as your bait’s in the water you’ve got a chance.
The tackle I fished with was as follows: Fox Rage Ultron drop shot rod, Fox Rage Ultron 2500 reel, 10lb Sunline braid on reel.
Fox Rage Illusion fluorocarbon 10lb 3oz (2 metres) joined to the braid with a small swivel.
Fox Rage micro jig head 1g size 4 hook. Berkley powerbait 2 inch rubber minnow. All knots (3) blood knots.
This is what you get if you type ‘lure’ into my website search engine. Plenty to have a go at if you’re a beginner regarding this way of fishing.
It’s certainly something I would recommend, and if you have any questions, post below. It’s good to keep them public, as others can also benefit.
