    Default Re: Rod vertical or horizontal

    Sorry,it's not only the speed,but what is the most efficient rod position for playing fish,also if you can play fish gentler,it reduces splashing,which helps with catching your next tench,I mean fish...

    I'd agree with Whitty. I like a bit of drama as much as anyone, but I grew up where the fishing was hard (cue Yorkshiremen sketch etc) and the best canal anglers all seemed able to net their fish with barely a splash. Sideways strikes and a low rod kept everything under the water better.

    I understand that modern commercial fisheries - big stocks, fish competing for food etc, heavier lines - have made some of that redundant, but I still wince a bit when I see how some anglers crash out the so-called "silver fish" and scoop out still-thrashing carp.
