KEY POINTS FROM MY AVON SES­SION

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TRICKS -

If you’re plea­sure fish­ing and not catch­ing af­ter a cou­ple of hours… move! Don’t be afraid to feed heav­ily if there are a lot of chub in front of you. A shoal of good-sized fish will eat a lot of food! Use strong gear to beat sit­u­a­tions where fish are caus­ing you prob­lems by run­ning you into weed or rushes. Two or three mag­gots on the hook work bet­ter than one where there is a mix of fish sizes. Use a buoy­ant-topped wag­gler in a good flow and an in­sert when the river is slow. Take a lure rod to places where you know pike are plen­ti­ful. It of­fers added ex­cite­ment if you man­age to hook into a fish like the one that was am­bush­ing my chub!
