Anglers Mail - - Anglers -

THE other day, Si­mon Rat­cliffe, my so­cial me­dia and web­site guru, told me that there were over half a mil­lion peo­ple search­ing out in­for­ma­tion on river wa­ter­craft last year. I re­ally am ec­static that so many an­glers want to get into rivers.

I’m even more chuffed that they want knowl­edge about wa­ter­craft, not sim­ply more stuff on baits and rigs.

In my book, wa­ter­craft is THE skill. If you’re not find­ing fish, even the best bait ever on the most dev­as­tat­ing of rigs won’t get you a bite.

Over the next three is­sues of An­gler's Mail I'm go­ing to guide you through some of the key river fea­tures, show­ing you how to tackle them be­tween now and the end of the sea­son.

Bridges are banker win­ter swims on rivers.

The per­fect hole be­hind a fallen tree. 24
