Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

ELCOME to an­other ac­tion-packed is­sue W of Angling Times, the only fish­ing weekly you’ll ever need!

This week’s front cover is a cel­e­bra­tion of the roach, a fish that will never cease to cap­ture the imag­i­na­tion of an­glers across the coun­try and be­yond.

Whether you’re fish­ing the up­per reaches of a river, a city-cen­tre canal or a com­mer­cial carp fish­ery, the chances are that you will en­coun­tera roach or two, and this week we make the task of catch­ing them much eas­ier for you.

Not only has our own river ace Dave Har­rell re­vealed his 20 best tips for a bag of roach from run­ning wa­ter, but our un­ri­valled Where to Fish sec­tion also con­tains de­tails of many of the UK’s best roach wa­ters that you can fish for the price of a day ticket.

Of course, we haven’t for­got­ten those who pre­fer to fish for some­thing a lit­tle larger, and this week’s Angling Times comes with a free 32-page carp gear guide which re­veals all the tackle you need to catch a per­sonal best this year. Still on the sub­ject of carp, it re­ally is worth read­ing the story of Dean Fletcher and his bid to get his 68 lb 1oz carp record ac­cepted as a Bri­tish record. It took him five months, dur­ing which time the fish has been caught three more times.

Time for a record-list re­think? I think so!
