Roach are Bob’s favourite fish and when he catches a quality redfin first put-in on this enjoyable stretch of Luton AC’s length of the Grand Union Canal at Ivinghoe, you know you’re in for a treat.

Bob’s got two lines of attack and in this first part of two (both free to view this month), he runs through his groundbait, squatt, pinkie and caster approach.

Bob shows how to cope with the varying flows (in both directions!) you encounter on canals, and explains how to induce fish into taking the hook bait.
After revealing his No1 groundbait mix for canals and showing how to mix it up perfectly, plus showing how much to feed for a session, Bob Nudd then sets about two lines of attack for this canal fishing masterclass; one with small fish like roach and gudgeon, and the other with quality fish including big roach and skimmer bream in mind.
Learn how to fish canals and about float, hook and elastic selection, plus most vitally of all, the importance of feeding correctly in this episode, which is FREE TO VIEW here on this website in Issue 5 of Coarse & Match Fishing Monthly.
