  • Novice Match Angler ......

    Aside from me never fishing a match since 1987,i have never fished a River full stop, and i have entered into a match on the Trent at East Bridgeford Notts(Notts Angling Water) now how would you approach it from my point of view being a novice.

      More than once though! Groundbait feeder with worm and caster. 6lb mainline, 0.18mm hooklength to a 14 or 12 strong hook, 2 worms, worm and maggot or caster, 3 casters or maggots on hook. Try and find out best distance to fish, depending on peg. Add or subtract weight to feeder so it just holds with rod in air and downstream, bit of a bow in line, want a 13ft rod. Cast every minute or 2 to start, then leave a bit longer.

            Of the 2 I would use the garbo as the bite indication should be better
