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.
