FOLLOW THE BUBBLES FOR TENCH AND BREAM
FOR a bit of top canal sport youll find it hard to beat the Grand Union at Rowington.
This popular match venue, which has held plenty of national events in the past, has been ultra-productive in recent weeks with big bags of bream showing.
The stretch is now run by Leamington Spa Angling Association, which operates an open-to-all membership policy. The club stretch runs from Bridge 62 at Rowington up to Bridge 67 at Chessetts Wood, some of which is shared by Stoneleigh Park AC.
Leamington press officer Phil Mattock fishes it regularly. He says: “The trick is to find some cover or a feature, feed just a golf ballsized piece of groundbait or crumb and fish maggot, worm or pinkies over the top.
“Once bites dry up you can top up, but keep your eye out for bubbles, as tench and bream will create these especially early morning or evening when they feed.”
