Tip of the day for July 18, 2007

Lincolnshire-based pike angler Graham Slater says: "I always take a lure rod with me, in addition to my bait rods, no matter where I'm going.

"If it's a long walk I might only take a couple of lures with me but it's amazing the amount of bonus fish this has produced over the last few years, worth a try on any water."

Many bait anglers also swear by working a lure around their baits. As well as giving you something to do, there are those who believe the twin-pronged approach could attract a fish into your swim which might then decide to pick up a dead, even if it's not in the mood to smash a lure.
