Wel­come from the Ed­i­tor...

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Contents - James Fur­ness Ed­i­tor

WEL­COME to the lat­est is­sue of IYCF! With the school sum­mer hol­i­days now here I imag­ine a lot of read­ers will be look­ing for ways to keep their chil­dren en­ter­tained. And what bet­ter way to amuse them for a few hours than tak­ing them fish­ing? Not only does it get them out­side in the fresh air and pro­vide the ideal op­por­tu­nity to learn about na­ture and wildlife and be­come more aware of their sur­round­ing en­vi­ron­ment, but fish­ing is proven to be ben­e­fi­cial for men­tal and phys­i­cal health and well-be­ing. So grab a cou­ple of pints of mag­gots, a wag­gler rod and a land­ing net and go and have some fun! My fam­ily and I re­cently hired a boat for an hour on the River Ouse. There was no fish­ing in­volved but us­ing a boat en­ables you to reach parts of the river which you’d never get to on foot. As well as there be­ing loads of over­hang­ing bushes which looked like the per­fect haunt for a big chub, I could see plenty of fry in the river which can only be a good thing for the fu­ture. I re­ally en­joyed read­ing the fea­ture with Martin Barnett (page 34) about freel­in­ing for chub. If you’re look­ing for a re­ally sim­ple and ef­fec­tive tac­tic to try this sum­mer then this is it – few meth­ods re­quire as lit­tle as a rod and a loaf of bread for great day’s sport. I hope you all find the tips and tricks in­side this month’s is­sue use­ful and that they help you put a few ex­tra fish on the bank. Make sure you get in touch to tell us about your ses­sions. See you next month.
