ROV­ING RIVER RIG

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

AU­TUMN means chub, and there’s noth­ing more pleas­ant than spend­ing a morn­ing rov­ing around on a small river in search of these oblig­ing fish.

A typ­i­cal nar­row river will have lots of likely-look­ing spots to cast a bait into. Over­hang­ing trees, bushes and rafts of de­bris are hotspots and trav­el­ling light is key, arm­ing your­self with just a light leger rod, a bag of tackle items, a land­ing net and, of course, some bait.

It’s just as sim­ple when it comes to rigs, with a light bomb or link leger fished on a run­ning rig work­ing well. Bites are sav­age, and by care­fully ro­tat­ing hook­baits you’ll soon hit upon what’s right for the day and fill your boots!
