Clear water and commercial fisheries, it’s not something we often think about but at this time of year when the fish are far less active it’s something that can become a factor, and a factor that according to Warren Matrix, seriously affects our catch rate.

I need to start by owning up to the fact that I’m not what can be considered a delicate angler! To me finesse sounds more like something you’d eat in a posh restaurant than a term to describe my fishing! That said I do put a lot of thought into fish behaviour and what influences my choice in tactics has on my catch rate.
