WELCOME to the latest issue of IYCF. The Euro 2016 football tournament and Wimbledon aren’t the only major sporting events to have taken place this summer. At the end of last month a squad of the country’s best feeder anglers travelled to Serbia for the 2016 FIPSed Feeder World Championships on the Novisad Canal. The team were hoping to win an unprecedented hat-trick of team golds but, despite being in pole position at the end of the first day, they eventually finished runners-up with the German team claiming the victory following a strong second day performance. Hopefully this won’t be repeated in the football! This month, IYCF readers can benefit from some of the England Feeder Team’s expert knowledge. Team manager, Tommy Pickering, reveals the five pole rigs that he wouldn’t be without (page 62) and explains when and where to use each one. Learn to tie them all and you’ll be covered for virtually every commercial fishery scenario you’re likely to face. And Steve Ringer, who won individual silver at this year’s event, gives his top 10 summer bait tricks (page 38) covering everything from maggots and casters to meat and pellets. This month’s issue also comes with a free Summer Stillwater Survival Guide which is packed with information on all the tackle and tactics you need to keep the bites coming at your local commercial over the next few months.
