6 LOW-WA­TER BAITS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

Chub have great eye­sight, and in low, clear rivers they can be­come very spooky and ig­nore large baits.

As a rule of thumb, the clearer the wa­ter and the more pres­sure put on the chub, the smaller the baits I will use. A sin­gle mag­got fished just 4ins be­low a block­end feeder filled with grubs is a great tac­tic when the chub are play­ing hard-to-get.

Re­cast ev­ery 20 min­utes to keep a stream of mag­gots drift­ing away from the feeder.

Sin­gle mag­got can work in clear wa­ter.

Try a mag­got feeder for spooky chub.
