HOW long should I fish each swim for when rov­ing for chub on the river?

Peter Greasley, Wythen­shawe

A BITE shouldn’t be too long in com­ing from like­ly­look­ing spots so, as a rule, two or three casts should be enough. Don’t be too hasty to reel in, though. A chub can take five min­utes check­ing out the hook­bait be­fore fi­nally de­cid­ing to take it.

If you are us­ing a small feeder to in­tro­duce a lit­tle bait along­side what’s on the hook, the wait can be longer, as you’ll be try­ing to build the swim up and en­cour­age more than one fish into the area.

Still cast ev­ery five min­utes but be pre­pared to de­vote up to half-an-hour to the swim in this sit­u­a­tion.

Give each cast up to five min­utes when rov­ing.
