Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

No self-re­spect­ing roach an­gler would leave home with­out a pint of freshly cooked hemp.

Roach love the taste but in­ter­est­ingly, when I have filmed fish un­der­wa­ter feed­ing on the seeds, they will of­ten pick them up and spit them out re­peat­edly be­fore even­tu­ally swal­low­ing them. I think this is why bites with hemp on the hook can be re­ally fast dips on the float and hard to hit.

As a roach at­trac­tor hemp is un­beat­able, and I will use it in com­bi­na­tion with all the other baits in my top 10 to con­cen­trate roach in my swim.
