Red-hot tactics for river success
IAM delighted to hear that river fishing is undergoing a bit of a revival right now (see our news story on P4&5).
For me, and Angling Times, it’s a very big part of our sport and we’re proud to back any initiative to get more people out on the riverbanks.
It would seem you feel the same, and I’ve had a lot of very positive comments about our weekly coverage of river fishing through our News pages, Where to Fish, and Match News sections since the season started.
Many of you also love reading the exploits of our regular columnists – river ace Dave Harrell and all-rounder Martin Bowler – as they bring you their warts and all reports and tactical edges from the river venues they fish.
This week we’ve got another fantastic river feature as we join Shakespeare’s James Robbins on the banks of the Warks Avon.
Using a simple bomb rig he gives us a masterclass in catching a netful of fish of all sizes, and the smile never leaves his face all day! We’ve also got some great advice from our bait expert Dr Paul Garner, who reveals a mix that big barbel simply can’t resist. Honestly, until you’ve experienced the thrill of catching wild fish on running water venues you can’t call yourself a true angler!
