A grayling on a bare hook. It was one of those red letter days when its a bite a chuck. I'd been trotting on a falling river all morning and was shattered- I was wading back to the bank for lunch and I'd let the float go and it was a few feet downstream.

 

next minute the rod tugs hard and I've got a 3lb grayling on a bare hook.

A leaf! Fish were sucking and blowing them off the top in the margin.

Nipped the hook in a small one and had a fish on within 5 minutes!

I use leaves for floater fishing on a regular basis, but only ever two types.

Eucalyptus and headache tree.

The oils in these attract the carp and I first noticed this when a gale was dropping leaves on the surface.

Hubba Bubba.........and sugar puffs.

 

 

I did see someone take a carp off the top once with a cigarette butt on the hook, just to prove a point..........though I would'nt condone anyone trying to encourage such a filthy habit :D

A common on a whole sardine, and here's a different floater, anyone tell what it's made of?

 

It was an attempt at carp that were having naturals :D
