BREAD

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

For some rea­son, bread in all its forms is a bril­liant roach bait in run­ning wa­ter, but is very in­con­sis­tent in still­wa­ters. The one ex­cep­tion is punched bread, which can be very good what­ever the venue. Punch is, of course, just small pieces of flake, and I think its small size is the rea­son it works in lakes as well as rivers.

River roach, though, are much more will­ing to take a big­ger bait, and a piece of fluffy bread flake the size of a 20p coin is ideal.

Feed is liq­uidised flake, fed ei­ther through a small open-end feeder or a tiny bait drop­per to en­sure it reaches the bot­tom quickly with­out first dis­pers­ing.
