Angling Times (UK) - - NEWS -

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.
