WHICH baits and feeds are best for clear wa­ter river bar­bel?

Some bar­bel an­glers swear by pel­lets and boilies what­ever the con­di­tions, but in clear wa­ter bar­bel will show cau­tion when faced with a bed of feed and a hook­bait.

In this in­stance, small par­ti­cles should be on your bait list and that means hemp, cast­ers, mag­gots and small pel­lets fed as com­bos or on their own.

A car­pet of this feed al­lows the fish to browse eas­ily with­out sus­pect­ing much is wrong when com­pared to larger boilies or pel­lets. On the hook you should ‘match the hatch’ by us­ing what you’re feed­ing – a bunch of mag­gots or cast­ers.
