Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Big Rewards From Small Rivers -

TREAD CARE­FULLY

Move in a stealthy man­ner so you don’t spook any fish sit­ting in your near­side mar­gin

STAY MO­BILE

A rov­ing ap­proach is of­ten ef­fec­tive. Try each swim for up to an hour be­fore mov­ing on

PRE­BAIT SWIMS

Pre­bait­ing a few swims is a good idea to gain the in­ter­est of any fish

LIT­TLE AND OF­TEN

Feed­ing lit­tle and of­ten will avoid spook­ing wary fish, and will keep the fish com­pet­ing

FISH INTO DARK­NESS

Bar­bel con­fi­dence grows af­ter dark, so fish an hour or two into this golden pe­riod

OB­SER­VA­TION IS KEY

Do your best to lo­cate the per­fect spot by ob­serv­ing through po­lar­is­ing glasses

MAIN­TAIN SE­CRECY

If you’re catch­ing well on a small river, try to keep the cap­tures un­der your hat.

FISH STRONG

Big bar­bel in small rivers will pull your arm off, so fish with ad­e­quate tackle
