Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

1

FISH AFTER DARK – When the sun dips be­low the hori­zon, big chub of­ten feed con­fi­dently, so be pre­pared to stay into the hours of dark­ness to con­nect with the real beasts.

2

BOILIES – Many big chub are caught by bar­bel an­glers us­ing large boilies, there­fore it makes sense to use these baits to sin­gle out the big­gest fish.

3

FISH IN THE ‘TAIL’ OF FEA­TURES – If you’ve ever watched a shoal of chub, you will know that the big­gest fish of­ten sit at the back of the group. By cast­ing to the tail end of bushes, trees or pools you’ll give your­self the best chance of putting your bait in front of a real spec­i­men.

4

UN­LIKELY STRETCHES – Some of the big­gest chub have been caught from deep and slow-mov­ing sec­tions of rivers, and it can be worth tar­get­ing these un­likely-look­ing ar­eas to find the big­gest chub.

5

STAY MO­BILE – Lo­ca­tion is ev­ery­thing when tar­get­ing big chub, and there’s no point in sit­ting be­hind a mo­tion­less rod-tip. Bring the bare min­i­mum of tackle and keep mov­ing un­til you find the fish.
