TOP FIVE TIPS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIP & TACTICS -

1 Keep hook­lengths short for chub and you’ll hook more. 2 When us­ing my small-river rig I mould putty around the bar­rel of the Uni Link swivel. The ex­tra weight helps to pull the hook into the fish’s mouth. 3 In clear wa­ter bar­bel and chub can see the hook, so I use half a boilie on a short hair. It falls over the metal work like a cup, con­ceal­ing it. 4 When us­ing a Method feeder on rivers make the mix very tacky so it takes at least 15 min­utes to be dis­lodged by the cur­rent. 5 For lo­ca­tion think ‘ex­tra flow’ as such places are a mag­net for early-sea­son fish.
