Drop shotting has become one of the ‘go-to’ tactics to target predators such as perch and zander in the UK.

Angler’s Mail magazine weekly columnist Steve Collett, the twice British Lure Champ, is seen here on the bank of a northern canal at the start of a session.

Filmed a few years ago during a feature for the mag, Steve tells you all you need to know about this superb tactic.

He openly shares tricks and tips along the way as he tries to build up a decent catch.

Now the manager of both England lure teams (boat and bank), Steve is in Angler’s Mail magazine every week. So, too, are many more interesting and inspiring columnists. Don’t miss an issue!
