RIVER CALDER, DEWS­BURY, WEST YORK­SHIRE

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

BIG nets of dace, grayling, perch and chub have been caught along the Calder­bank Road stretch re­cently by an­glers fish­ing the pole. Fish into the main flow, which is around 8m out, with mag­gots on the hook, feed­ing small balls of ground­bait reg­u­larly.

Use light tackle, such as 0.10mm line and a size 20 hook teamed with a No8 solid elas­tic, and be pre­pared to hook the odd large chub or perch.

The stick float can also work well, and feed­ing mag­gots and hemp will draw fish from down­stream into your peg. If your swim has some far-bank cover it can also be worth fish­ing a bomb with bread, worms or meat to try and in­ter­cept the odd bonus fish.
