It’s hemp and tares time...

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

I FIND that low, clear rivers of­ten pro­duce good sport, es­pe­cially for roach and chub, as long as they don’t get that nasty dead al­gae blight – what looks like strands of roll-up baccy adorn­ing keep­nets and waders.

The pre­vail­ing con­di­tions are usu­ally bril­liant for baits such as hemp, tares and sweet­corn. Some days you wouldn’t know there was a roach for miles if you fished mag­got or caster, but feed some seed, fish tares on the hook and it can be like turn­ing on a switch.

How­ever, if there’s brown al­gae sus­pended in the wa­ter there’s not much that will save your day.
