Wormin in the Wind


The worst problem a worm fisherman has to deal with is a stiff wind. Holding your rod tip high in the wind is a mistake. Keep your rod at about 8 or 9 o’clock instead of the traditional 11 or 12 o’clock. With a high rod, the wind will create a big bow in your line and you’ll loose touch with your worm. With a low rod angle there is less drag on your line, thus you’ll fell more strikes. When possible, fish crosswind and downwind from your target, this will help present the worm more naturally.
