Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

Rather like when the wa­ter is ex­tremely coloured, you can only rely on cer­tain species for guar­an­teed sport in crys­tal-clear con­di­tions, and roach have to be at the top of that list. Bread is the ul­ti­mate bait, due to the high vis­i­bil­ity it of­fers. When lots of small roach are on the agenda, a small piece of punched bread hook­bait works par­tic­u­larly well, with small balls of liq­uidised bread fed reg­u­larly to cre­ate a cloud that draws in the shoals. If you are look­ing to catch a per­sonal best roach, how­ever, switch to bread­flake to fend off the at­ten­tions of the smaller spec­i­mens.
