The One-Up Swim


This swim looks straight up the middle of the lake and from here almost all of the lake can be watched. On warm summer days you’ll see lots of carp on the surface in front of his swim and it can make a good surface fishing swim. The fish also move and feed up and down the marginal drop-off shelf that runs all along this bank about 3 rod lengths out.

When fishing this swim don’t ignore the extreme margins (under the rod tip). Drop in a bit of bait during the late afternoon and then pop a bait there for the night. If you are going to fish the extreme margins don’t forget to set the bivvy up further back to keep noise and backside disturbance to a minimum.
