Red-hot tac­tics for river suc­cess

Angling Times (UK) - - FRONT PAGE -

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!
