Tar­get a lit­tle-fished stretch of river

Angling Times (UK) - - ULTIMATE GUIDE TO 2019 -

Many reaches of our rivers are ex­tremely well known, but far more stretches are very lightly fished.

Lots of them hold spec­i­men fish in­clud­ing bar­bel, chub and carp, and there could be a real sur­prise wait­ing to be caught.

Such stretches lend them­selves to a bit of prebaiting, as it will be you that ben­e­fits, not an­other an­gler.

Many an­glers have loads of old bait they can use for this. If you haven’t, hemp, stewed wheat and pel­lets are fairly cheap and per­fect for the job.
