|THE MOON AND FISHING|
|COARSE FISHING WITH THE ESSEX ANGLER|
What if the moon could dictate if you have a successful angling session or a blank ! Well Chris Lyons has researched this for 5 years, and by calculating the lunar orbit he can determine precisely when you can have more chances of hooking a big fish.This is because the fish feeding times or more or less governed by the lunar orbit
If you keep a detailed diary of your catches, the feeding periods will appear random, favouring toward dusk. If you was to add the moons cycle to the equation, a pattern will immediately be seen. It can then be noted that the position and phase of the moon is the real and overriding factor governing fish activity.
Other factors will enhance or reduce activity when coupled with this, but one thing is certain these factors DO NOT induce feeding.
There are no "cast iron guarrantees", determining daily peak times and feeding periods are just to aid your chances.
Chris has documented over 3,400 specimen fish (mainly barbel), and including many British records. He concluded that over 96% were caught on "key days" of the lunar orbit.
The moon follows the same pattern -
New moon, First quarter, Full moon, Last quarter, (NM,FQ,FM,LQ,)
