Specialty Float Tactics

The ledgering and float tactics covered in preceding chapters will put carp on the bank for you in most conditions on Canadian lakes, ponds, rivers, creeks and streams.

But the more you are on the water, the more likely you are to face situations that demand rogue presentations to meet
spot-specific challenges such as drifting debris that fouls your running line in river currents — or steep drop-offs and thick weed beds along still-water shorelines.

You may also wish to try a new and different way to catch carp just for the sheer fun and adventure of it! This chapter looks at specialty float tactics that will get your carp mojo going — and often get you hooked into fish when conventional tactics will not.
