Do you have the courage to try dif­fer­ent baits?

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

PHIL Reynolds’s ar­ti­cle in last week’s An­gling Times re­gard­ing his suc­cess with mac­a­roni cheese made for in­ter­est­ing read­ing, but it did get me think­ing – will fish eat lit­er­ally any­thing?

I have heard of fish being caught on all sorts of weird things in­clud­ing berries, pota­toes and even meat­balls!

We all spend hours pre­par­ing for our next ses­sion but do we spend too much time think­ing about bait choice? Could we sim­ply lump what­ever we find on the hook and still ex­pe­ri­ence the same lev­els of suc­cess?

I think we prob­a­bly could, but like ev­ery an­gler in the coun­try I haven’t got the guts to put that theory into prac­tice, and I will stick to what I know best, just in case I am com­pletely wrong!
