So, up until recently I did most of my fishing on the waggler and enjoyed a few successful moments, recently however I have started to think about the ledger. Last year I purchased a feeder rod with a selection of tips and today for the first time decided to ledger fish instead. So here's how I did it. I started simple, used a size 16 hook and placed a weight onto the line with a shot about six inches away from the hook to stop the weight and then loaded the hook with maggots. The rod was then placed on two rests, the one at the back higher so the tip of the rod was close to the water, after casting I tightened the line and waited. And waited.. And waited... Compared to my usual float method this is a new way to fish and I noticed that all the other guys fishing this method were also waiting a long time for a bite. Anyone here who has the experience and lingering who would be willing to share the experience would be really appreciated. I am yet to catch anything on the ledger but the waggler on the other hand has become easy in comparison. I am determined to make a catch using a ledger fishing!!!!
