8 TRY SMALLER HOOKS

Angling Times (UK) - - JAMES ROBBINS: RIVER CHUB -

WHEN float fish­ing for pres­sured chub, it’s amaz­ing the dif­fer­ence that your hook can make.

Sim­ply scal­ing down to a size 18 or 20 hook with a small bait such as sin­gle or dou­ble mag­got can of­ten pro­duce a bite out of thin air. As long as your hook is a strong, forged pat­tern which isn’t go­ing to straighten out, your tackle should hold!
