IF I had to put my house on a man to catch me a roach, I’d def­i­nitely pick four-times World Champ Bob Nudd. What he doesn’t know about catch­ing big bags of redfins is prob­a­bly not worth know­ing, and this week he spills the beans on his lat­est ap­proaches.

You’d think that after spend­ing months in Ire­land catch­ing roach and hy­brids Bob might be tir­ing of them when it comes to au­tumn, but he re­vealed that this is his favourite time of year – a few years ago he even moved house to be closer to the venues where roach pack into through the colder months!

Check out our tips-packed fea­ture from our day on the bank with him on pages 36 to 39.

There’s an­other fa­mous ‘Bob’ who fea­tures in An­gling Times this week – fly fish­ing leg­end Bob Church.

Last week saw a huge tackle auc­tion of Bob’s gear and there were thou­sands of an­glers from across the globe bid­ding on the unique items. For those lucky enough to sub­mit win­ning bids, con­grat­u­la­tions on grab­bing a slice of fish­ing his­tory. For those who could make it, or were out­bid, don’t worry, Bob has agreed to give a unique rod away in an ex­clu­sive An­gling Times reader com­pe­ti­tion this week. Read the full story of the day on pages 8&9.
