Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

Lo­cal rod Craig Robin­son says… Tackle: “A stan­dard 12ft feeder rod is per­fect for the Ouse and I use a 1.5oz-2oz quiv­er­tip, de­pend­ing how strong the flow is. Don’t fish too light – a 0.14mm (4lb) hook­length of a cou­ple of feet is as light as I’ll go, as the bream are fight­ing fit. My hook is a size 16-20 Ka­masan B532, de­pend­ing on the bait be­ing used on the day.”

Baits: “Cast­ers are a bril­liant feed on the Ouse and I’ll re­ally pack them into the feeder. I tend not to use chopped worms un­less it’s flooded, as they at­tract lit­tle ruffe and eels. For­get a fish­meal ground­bait on here. I use a sweet mix such as Sen­sas Su­per Black Bremes, Match Blend and brown crumb.”

Tac­tics: “Go for a big feeder for bream and cast reg­u­larly (every cou­ple of min­utes) to get enough bait down to hold the pass­ing shoals. Find the flow to find the fish. The roach can be caught on a wide va­ri­ety of float tac­tics, in­clud­ing the pole, Bolo, wag­gler and stick float.”
