Part 6 – Catch small fish

There are lots of fish to be caught close to the towpath bank, if you know how, and Motty definitely knows how. He explains all in part six of seven.

You'll learn:

  • how to use a plummet to accurately plumb the depth
  • how much groundbait to introduce
  • how to loose feed with squatts
  • the best canal hookbait for roach, perch and gudgeon
  • how to control your rig
  • why you shouldn't leave your rig in the water for too long
