            feed barely anything and be prepared to search allover your peg you maybe only a foot away from a shoal of fish but they wont come to you,youve got to go to them

                  i love winter fishing its the time the cogs have to work overtime to get the most out of your peg.i used to hate fishing in the summer on the canals you used to spend loads on bait and when you drew a peg and it wasnt either an end peg or an out and out flier where worm and caster was all that was needed you won jack i stopped going ,at least in winter theres alot more skill involved and alot more rewarding

                      The best tip I can give you is ..... get on a river. Some cracking fishing to be had when the flows and colour are right.

                          Winter can provide good sport on rivers for big roach, chub perch and even barbel when trotting maggots or worm......Pike fishing is good this time of year too on the run up to winter

                          Why let the weather stop you Iv sat in blizzards for pike last year and had some great fun even though i had to wear a balacalava to prevent my lips and face surcoming to frost bite

                            Don't believe you don't fish in the winter Leaky, your a hard as nails northerner. Luke ! You are letting the north down fella, get out there and wet a line.
                            Seriously though, like breamgod i love winter fishing. Gone are the ale drinking pot smoking buzzer boys. The fishing is superb if like breamgod says you think and work, scale everything down and feed little and you should catch.
                            The scenery is also superb, i love winter the frosty mornings and the wildlife, it's a different world to the summer. You also have the added bonus that shallow fishing is a no no, so none of that horrible slapping and tapping.
                            Roll on frostiness i say.
