"Get your accuracy bang on at 50 yards and work your way up in 10 yard stints, but you need to be spot-on every time, and I mean spot-on"UKCARP MAGAZINE 44 SEPTEMBER 6TH 2011KEEPING IT TIGHTIt also means you are completely self contained in your own swim, and there is no need to re-cast a bare lead to find your markers.A simple thing for night-time is to mark out your swim with any horizon markers (tree lines, street lights) so you are then fishing effectively day or night. You will be surprised how many extra bites that gets you by being able to get the rod out to the exact spot in darkness.One thing I like to do for that added bit of security on the tangle front is to slide a tiny mesh bag of pellet down the rig and simply pull the hook into the bag. It not only renders your rig tangle-free, but also straightens it out on landing, leaving a tiny amount of attraction right next to your hookbait.The bag only needs to be the size of a 20p coin - anything larger and it has the potential to move off course on the cast. If fishing at distance you'll struggle to hit the mark with a larger bag.Think about braidMoving back to hooklink materials, I favour the more subtle coated braids - or a simple braided rig will suffice. I've gone back to the subtle coated materials because there is room for error if the rig lands on a slight bit of weed or detritus.Just imagine if you are using one of the really stiff coated braids and it lands awkwardly. It could sit up at an acute angle and your rig is never going to perform how it should. The same goes for braid, which is so underused it's untrue, and I've only gone back to it because other anglers dismiss it. The only stumbling block is the tangle situation with braid, but a 20p sized bag eliminates all that and you know that you've got a chance of a bite, whatever it lands on.If you've never tried 'The Oxford Way' you could be missing a trick, but don't think you can do it at 100yds immediately. As with anything, practice makes perfect, so get your accuracy bang on at 50 yards and work your way up in 10 yard stints - but you need to be spot-on every time, and I mean spot-on.You are trying to attract the fish to your spot with your spod mix but as well as that you are aiming to fish super tight, and once mastered this can be a mind-blowing tactic.I think it is fair to say that my own fishing is now more geared around the boilie approach, but that is only because the waters I choose to fish are predominately boilie-only waters. If I'm honest I find it a lot easier than spodding tight because there is simply more room for error (maybe it's an age thing).Now and then when I'm back down in Oxford there is nothing more satisfying than getting all three rods out on a spot that's no bigger than a brolly and knocking the paint of the marker float with every spod. Then it's just a case of sitting back and waiting for the alarms to sing out. I choose subtle coated braids when I tie my rigs.Bait should mimic spod contents.Punching out to a skyline marker.Pull the hook into the bag for security.A double caught the Oxford way.
