Es­sen­tial chub tackle:

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

One of the main ben­e­fits of us­ing float­ing baits for chub is the min­i­mal amount of tackle you need to take to the bank. Martin re­veals the es­sen­tials he car­ries:

Rod and reel: An 11ft feeder rod with a bit of power to steer fish away from snags and a 4000 size reel loaded with 7lb line will beat any chub.

Land­ing net: Use a light­weight net and han­dle to make it easy to carry when rov­ing.

For­ceps: Chub can swal­low a bait in an in­stant and this tool en­ables you to safely re­move a hook from within the mouth.

Bait : Half a loaf of bread is all that is needed for a whole day of ac­tion. This is more than enough be­cause you will barely loose­feed any­thing.

Hooks: Take a cou­ple of packs of size 6 and 8 hooks to deal with slightly dif­fer­ent hook­bait sizes. Korda Mixas and Dren­nan Wide Gape Spe­cial­ists are both ideal pat­terns.
