OPERATE ITS LINE WELL

Teasing is the action of provoking the fish to attack the live bait which is offered to it. The techniques are different depending on the water fished. Discover how to animate your line to entice the fish to bite. 
 
STILL WATER

After immersing the line, move the float a few centimetres sideways, then start again when it has stopped moving. The touch generally comes after releasing it.

RUNNING WATER (weak to medium current)
 

After having placed the line, stop the line for a few seconds and raise the float 4 to 5 centimetres. Release then start the operation again a bit lower. The touch generally comes after that bait has moved over the hook, when the line stops.

RUNNING WATER (fast moving current)

 

"Ledgering" is the only technique that will let you touch some beautiful fish. Used with heavy lines (3g to 15 g), it consists of keeping the line on the bottom which has been baited, by stopping the line drifting. The touch is distinct and the strike is automatic.

Each movement of the line must be made gradually while waiting for a while each time it stops. The touch is distinct and consequently the strike must be immediate.
