    will the fish be down that far at this time of the year ? I rather suspect they will be in the upper layers of water where its warmer.

    At most they will come a foot or two of the bottom, depending on the swim the shelf is at 9m or so or if your lucky flattens out where the skimmers tend to feed.

    Sounds like a good venue to fish the Slider matey!!!

    It's a great way of catching in deep swims..........

    Give it a try!!!

    i agree with lee and at 9m it,s a doddle .set the pole for on the drop presentation the fish will not wait at the bottom in that depth of water with a steady trickle of maggot/caster over there heads,......shirt button shotting pattern light pole float feed lay line in straight tight line after feeding little and often keep the hookbait falling with the loose feed dont allow it to hang static. vary depth to find fish and fish as short to float as possible to connect with instant/fast bites .if that dont work go on the slider.
    Fancy a pint?
