Canal Fishing in Great Britain is one of the most popular and skilled pursuits for the modern coarse fisherman. Attention to detail is critical, particularly for the Match Angler and getting the best out of a swim relies on consistent feeding and reading of the water.
Bob Nudd MBE, four times World Coarse Angling Champion, has developed assured techniques for success on the canal and in this programme he explains how he's been able to achieve winning form on every occasion.
With Roach, Perch and Gudgeon in abundance, a pleasant stretch of the Grand Union Canal near Leighton Buzzard is a perfect venue for this definitive guide. Bob works through plumbing up, where to fish, ground-bait mixes and baits. Rigs featured are for Bread Punch, Squat, Worm and Caster, with Bob demonstrating how to work between the rigs to maximum effect.
The resulting keep net of fish is Bob's reward and his obvious enjoyment is unmistakable, encouraging anglers of all levels to improve their canal fishing techniques with the promise of greater success.
