SWEET­CORN

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

A very un­der-rated roach bait, but one that has caught me some lovely spec­i­mens from still­wa­ters and rivers. Two grains might seem like quite a big bait, but will catch roach from 1lb up­wards and be im­mune to the at­ten­tions of smaller fish.

Spec­i­men carp venues are the ideal places to fish this bait for big roach, as many carp an­glers will in­cor­po­rate corn in their spod mix but never use it on the hook – giv­ing the smaller species a free meal and ef­fec­tively pre­bait­ing your swim.
