TOUCH OF COLOUR – MAG­GOTS OR PEL­LETS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

Most river an­glers would class these as ideal con­di­tions, with vir­tu­ally all species feed­ing well. The pace of the cur­rent is likely to be steady, with plenty of gen­tle glides and slacks to tar­get. If you fancy a spot of float­fish­ing, a stick float or wag­gler with mag­gots will pick up ev­ery­thing that swims. Feed 10-15 mag­gots every 30 sec­onds and you can ex­pect ac­tion from roach, perch, dace and even chub. Big­ger fish can be picked out on leg­ered pel­lets. Hal­ibut pel­lets re­lease lots of scent and are more ex­clu­sive, giv­ing bar­bel, chub and bream the chance to get a meal that the silverfish can’t en­gulf.
