    I think that a lot of accuracy is lost when we cast lazily letting the clip stop the flight of the feeder. What I try to do is cast accurately and so the clip just tells me i'm in the right place. In my match fishing days, before I took a more relaxed approach to my fishing, I would practice casting accurately and aim to land the feeder so that after casting when I brought the rod back to a set point behind me i would be at the clip. I was pretty accurate when conditions were reasonable, I'm sure this approach was more accurate than letting the feeder hit the clip and missing the spot.
    I witnessed someone spoding a few weekends back on an adjacent bank. The guy was winding up as if to put the thing out 100 yards butwas clipped up at about 40-50 yards each cast the spod hit the clip and came back towards him.

    There is always the side of bad angling,not hitting the clip and easing it down,the bad mixing of g.bait are but two,mistakes happen occasionally,but shouldn't happen regularly...

    Good advice sometimes I will stick to the spot with one rod and have an explore with the second

    I sometimes stick to the spot with one rod and explore with the 2nd

    Tbh I catch plenty of fish it was just an observation that seeing two distinct fishing approaches side by side the more accurate approach isn't always the most productive as I would have thought.
    Sometimes its probably down to who ever is on the most fish picked the best swim etc.
    On a side note I have an ibobber on order which I'm going to use to map some swims out
