Pinkies, casters, gozzers or just the good old maggot, in this series we're going to look at the various angling baits available, how to look after them and how to use them successfully. With video hints and tips from canal fishing champion, Simon Mottram, and a bit of historical background from our regular angling historian, John Essex, you'll find there's more to baits than just fish food.
