Tips and Techniques

Owing to the river’s size, the roving approach often pays dividends. Try ledgering cheese to far bank cover for Chub.
Liquidised bread in a cage feeder with small bread flake on the hook can account for some great Roach.
If you do not catch in one swim try another, the fish seem to have inherited nomadic qualities.
