Down-tide / Drift Fishing

Down-tide or Drift fishing is one of the oldest and most popular methods of game fishing whilst on the ocean in a boat. With rod in hand, standing downtide from the boat is a relaxing and often fruitful method of angling. Whilst it has lost some of its followers to the seemingly more challenging up-tide fishing, a good down-tide technique can be more difficult and rewarding to master.
