Angling Times has secured a new feeder and float line designed specifically for coloured water encountered in commercial fisheries, canals and rivers carrying an extra tinge.
On the back of AT’s brilliant free spool of ‘Redi’ line that sold out across the UK in the summer, Blue Ice completes our ‘low visibility’ line set and will deliver anglers the perfect fishing solution whatever the conditions.
With red the proven colour to disappear first in clearer waters, making your line harder for wary fish to detect, Angling Times spent months researching how different colours react in different fishing conditions.
And with so many of you likely to tackle a well-stocked lake in 2009 which is sure to be heavily coloured due to excessive bottom feeding, we have created Blue Ice!
Tackle tester and England Under 22 International Jonathan Taylor has been using ‘Ice’ since September and has enjoyed numerous ton-plus hauls.
“I’ve used Blue Ice on both commercial fisheries for carp and rivers for bream and the performance has been second to none.
“I now have reels spooled up with blue and red line thanks to Angling Times’
free gifts and I simply alternate, depending on the colour of the water.
Blue seems to disappear in heavy colour whereas red is low visibility in clearer lakes, especially in depths of over 1m.”
Water is 800 times denser than air and, as soon as light enters the water, it reacts with molecules and suspended particles to cause loss of light, colour changes, diffusion, and loss of contrast. A choppy surface can even alter light penetration!
Your free 100m spool of Blue Ice comes in 6lb breaking strain – 0.20mmm diameter – and is available FREE with our special Christmas double issue out Tuesday, December 23. If you don’t want to miss out, make sure you order your copy from a local newsagent.
