  • Any tips at all for a beginner. Roach Fishing.

    Been fishing just over a month now, I catch absolutely loads of Perch. I would really love to start catching a few more Roach though. Any tips that could help me would be hugely appreciated.

    I fish with a 6m whip, which is not elasticated. I fish with red maggots and use different ground baits each time.

    Where are you fishing, as there are several baits that roach love in preference to red maggots, try punched bread fished over a ball of liquidized bread, hemp can bring a bigger stamp of fish, and caster will always see a roach or two take them.

        Try having a read of these Tom although the first one covers bloodworm and joker, part of it has a piece on fishing the bread and was done on the cut at the back of Sainsburys in Wallsal

            Hi Tom

            If you are 'free' tomorrow, Sprucey will be fishing the punch and caster probably on a peg between the Fingerpost pub and the walkover bridge on the junction with the Extension canal.

            I'm sure you'd pick up a few tips from him if you watch him quietly.

            When I fish the punch down there I feed liquidised bread (not groundbait) on two lines at the bottom of both shelves - generally 4-5mtrs down the inside and 9-10 mtrs across, dependent on peg. The second line will probably be too far across for you with your whip, so I'd probably jjust focus on the inside/going into the track.

            If you havent got one, get a 'clip on' pole pot to help you cup the liquidised bread in.

            Make sure you plumb up carefully, and fish the punch about 1nch or so off bottom so you don't start picking up a bit of weed.

            What line and rigs are you using? At this time of the year I 'step up' up to 0.08 (1.5lb in old money), using a 0.2 or 0.3g float dependent on conditions. make sure it's dotted right down with just 1/4inch bristle showing (bulk of 10s about 15-18 ins from the hook with a couple of smaller dropper shot between the bulk and hook) also make sure you use a fine(ish) wire hook in a 20 or 22
            Even when I draw a half decent peg fate conspires against me...............:(

              i wouldnt no too much about canals but if your fishing for silver on a comercial the fish a 3 meter whip and have it so you swing them in to hand i.e three meter rig. use hemp and feed hemp

                I'm not going to be free tomorrow sadly TK.

                My rig is, 4m of line, 4lb line and size 20 hook. When will you next be there? I could come down and pick a few tips up from you maybe?

                  Not sure when I'll be down to fish thereTom - probably for a match in 3 weeks time (I'm tied up with other matches at the mo)


                  There is also a small club match there on this Sunday, might be worth a look - I'll probably manage to pop and see how they are getting on for an hour or so
