It’s been a bril­liant start to the river sea­son! Top match an­gler Dar­ren Cox is here to help.

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME - STEVE FITZ­PATRICK ED­I­TOR-IN-CHIEF

WHEN was the last time you caught a near-2lb roach, mas­sive dace (re­mem­ber them?) or a big chub on the float?

Well, I know a tiny river where you can do that in one quick ses­sion, and it’s free to fish too!

I’m talk­ing about the River Bain in Lin­colnshire, a venue you could al­most jump across in places, but one that’s so good we’ve named it as our Fish­ery of the Week in this is­sue. Take a look at our front cover photo and I’m sure you’ll agree!

It’s just one of a whole host of hid­den gems all over the coun­try which are of­ten over­looked in favour of their more fa­mous, head­line-grab­bing fish­eries in their area – and that’s a real shame.

If you’re look­ing for some in­spi­ra­tion, check out this week’s Where to Fish sec­tion where you’ll find a few places on your doorstep you might not have fished be­fore.

When we’re on the sub­ject of rivers, our Tips & Tac­tics sec­tion is packed with great ad­vice from some of the coun­try’s lead­ing run­ning water an­glers in­clud­ing res­i­dent ex­pert Dave Har­rell, match ace Dar­ren Cox and bar­bel-catcher ex­traor­di­naire Steve Pope. If you can’t catch af­ter fol­low­ing their ad­vice, it’s time to take up golf! You’ll also find some in-depth guides to the best pegs to head for this week­end.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to get back on the bank I’d urge you to do so now and fill your boots!
