The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
'Up the line' or 'Up-country' is a term some of you may be familiar with, especially if you have a connection with Cornwall, and to some, especially the proper Cornish, it literally means travelling over the border, which is the river Tamar. In fact, when I was younger there were a few old villagers who`d never been very far - certainly not over the Tamar river!
Way back in the mists of time I wrote an article for the Nutrabaits magazine/catalogue outlining how I go about making my hookbaits stand out from the crowd. Much water has flowed under the bridge since then so I thought I would update the original with my current thinking on boosted hookers!
