Okay, we've all been there, you're setup in a swim and nothing, not a touch not a sign, nothing. You look around and think about moving your gear to another swim to try again... Do you or don't you move??

We faced that same dilema on Sunday and partway through moving my gear including bivvy (it was a long session
) I got my first bite and missed it.
We move regardless and continued fishing through the remainder of the day, the night and the following morning and still I had nothing.

Then the thought came in - What if I hadn't had moved, would I have caught? Then again if I hadn't had moved and blanked, what if and should I have moved?

Is there a right time to move or should you?

Faced this dilema many many times. All I can suggest is that if fish are showing else where then yes, a move is probably the correct thing to do. On an extended stay then you have to weigh up whether or not the baiting programe is/was correct and will it come good. Some times it can take 2 days for the fish to find and feed on the free offerings.

If this question had concerned rivers the answer would have been a big yes.

sorry I cany be more specific. John



chill out go fishing
