BREAM, CARP OR ROACH, THE CHOICE IS YOURS!

BASINGSTOKE CANAL

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH SOUTH -

AN UN­USUAL stretch of canal where a 40lb net is pos­si­ble, the Bot­tom Flash is a great choice for those who like nat­u­ral fish­ing.

Plea­sure an­glers can eas­ily catch 40lb of slabs and, due to its width of nearly 120ft, it is one of the few canals where boat traf­fic is ir­rel­e­vant.

That means the bream tend to shoal up as do the spec­i­men carp, the lat­ter have been caught over 30lb.

There are also good bags of roach to be had on the mag­got or caster. Hemp and bread may also be worth try­ing for the big­ger fish, how­ever, most an­glers tend to opt for the ground­bait or mi­cro pel­let feeder for the bream.

The depth in the mid­dle is around 6ft where they can be caught us­ing worm, pel­let or corn on the hook with a sweet ground­bait mix or soft­ened mi­cro pel­lets in or on the feeder.

PRICES: £4 on the bank or £3 from lo­cal tackle shops Basingstoke Canal AA CON­TACT: Fish­eries of­fi­cer, Steve Meyer, 07786 663921, www.bas­ingstoke­canalaa.co.uk POST­CODE: GU12 5LP
