Can I expect to catch chub in mid-river?
WILL I be able catch chub down the middle of a river? Geoff Anderson, Selby
CHUB do prefer a bit of cover, but that’s not to say they can’t be coaxed into feeding down the middle. All it takes is regular feeding on a line that offers the maximum depth to go at – trickle in a pouch of maggots or hemp and casters every run through on the float, and be prepared to catch roach and dace.
Those little fish will soon depart, once the greedy chub move in!
