Big fish on a bud­get on the River Ure

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

THE Ure at Ripon is a big-fish river at a bud­get price.

Chub to over 6lb, barbel to dou­ble fig­ures and qual­ity grayling, perch and pike can be sought on a £6 day ticket from Ripon Pis­ca­to­rial As­so­ci­a­tion.

Here the Ure has plenty of over­hang­ing trees, shal­low runs and deep bends. A rov­ing ap­proach will pay div­i­dends but the static an­gler will not fail, as 70lb bags of chub av­er­ag­ing 4lb in the matches regularly held here will tes­tify.

With the water be­ing fairly shal­low, use of a float may well be a lit­tle dif­fi­cult so feed­ers and leg­ers are there­fore the best op­tion. Casters, worms and bread should all get re­sults here, es­pe­cially when the weather turns colder. Trot­ted mag­got can work too, es­pe­cially for the grayling, while the big­ger barbel will take worms, lun­cheon meat and corn fished on a lead or pel­let feeder. PRICES: £6 from lo­cal tackle shops, Ripon Pis­ca­to­ri­als LO­CA­TION: River Ure, Ripon, N Yorks, HG4 2JZ CON­TACT: Har­ro­gate An­gling Sup­plies, 01423 883270 RULES: No fires, no lit­ter
