6 PUT ON A FLOAT

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

THE wag­gler or stick float, depend­ing how far out you cast, is a great way of ap­proach­ing a shoal of chub.

You’ll need plenty of pints of mag­gots or cast­ers to cat­a­pult in, as chub are greedy fish and you may have to in­crease the feed to switch them on, es­pe­cially in the last few hours.

Fish a 3lb, 4lb or even 5lb main­line straight through be­cause the chub is a no­to­ri­ously hard-fight­ing species which dives for snags.
