GROUND­BAIT

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

French match an­glers, who know about these things, have long used ground­bait to at­tract and hold roach in their pegs.

I use Sen­sas 3000 Gar­dons (roach) as the ba­sis for my ground­bait mix, adding lots of crushed hemp in shal­low wa­ter, or when us­ing an ope­nend feeder.

Roach up in the wa­ter are at­tracted by a light, cloudy mix, but on the deck I stick to dark red or black mixes.

When ex­pect­ing to catch on the bot­tom, I know the roach will set­tle over dark feed.
