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!
