RIVER THURNE, LUDHAM, NORFOLK
A RECENT match was won with 47lb 6oz of roach, supported by five backing weights over 25lb.
Fish as close in as possible with casters to single out the best fish.
Try feeding balls of groundbait and running a caster over the top, followed by occasional loosefeeds of casters.
On the wider stretches of river fishing further out with a feeder can work well. Fill a cage feeder with groundbait and present maggots, casters, corn or worm on the hook to have the chance of encountering a bonus perch or big bream.
