pluming up is one of the most important processes when setting up and it should be done carefully and accurately to get the best out of your swim

The picture above shows the optimum at the base of the bristle but most would plumb up to the base of the body so there is a bit of movement allowed with the float before the bait is dislodged.

you may have to allow for tow on the day by laying more line on the bottom
