Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

Lo­cal ex­pert, Pre­ston In­no­va­tions’ Scott Geens, says... Tackle: “You never know what you’re go­ing to hook next so bal­anced tackle is vi­tal. On your worm rig, a hook­length of 0.10mm (2.4lb), a size 16 hook and a No6 elas­tic with a 0.4g float is fine for the cen­tral chan­nel. For fish­ing over to the snags, I would step it up in order to pull any hooked fish out of those roots.”

Baits: “To catch a net of small fish, regularly feed pinkies at the bot­tom of the near shelf. For big­ger skim­mers, chub and perch, use small pieces of worm on the hook.”

Tac­tics: “The canal tows here, so when feed­ing chopped worm and caster I like to mix it into a dark ground­bait with added soil to get it down on the bot­tom at the start. Af­ter that I will regularly top up with small balls of the same mix ev­ery time a boat passes by, or when bites start to tail off.”
