Read ‘Improve’ – succeed like Paul
PAUL Garner’s first cast for bream during a feature for Angling Times’ sister magazine Improve Your Coarse Fishing resulted in this 27lb 4oz grass carp.
After making several casts with a Method feeder to get a bed of bait down in his swim at Farnham Angling Society’s Badshot Lea Fishery in Hampshire, the Angling Times columnist’s tip arched around.
The latest issue of Improve Your Coarse Fishing hits the shelves next Tuesday (August 30) and is packed with tactics to ensure that just like Paul, you’ll enjoy a fish-filled month – whatever you’re targeting!
Jamie Hughes banks 100lb of slabs from a famous bream hotspot that’s been a secret for years.
Middy’s Chris Cameron explains how he fishes the margins of commercial fisheries for carp, former Drennan Cup champ Alan Stagg goes for big barbel in small rivers, and Tommy Pickering demonstrates how to feed and fish more accurately.
This month’s buyers’ guide looks at pole rollers. The Greys Prodigy TXL barbel rod and Drennan Red Range Margin Carp pole are also put through their paces on the bank by Improve’s resident tackle experts.
