When you say simple stick float and maggot maybe I'm a bit simple...I went fishing this Sunday on my local river ( River Don near Oughtibridge).
When i left the house the temp was -2 with a heavy frost.
Slow going to begin with in my chosen swim, but then hit on a shoal.
All in all in the 3 and a bit hours fishing I had 15 Grayling out with 4 going over a pound. So cold shouldn't be a factor.
Simple stick float and maggot tactics
Feed the swim slowly as Silverman says, pop it through, hold it back slightly, mend the line and slowly drop until its just off bottom?
I've read you need to look for steady flow, but also understand creases, slacks and eddies hold fish-I think...
