Big fish ace Des Taylor is the star turn in the new issue of ‘Coarse & Match Fishing’, which is live and free to view online, on mobile, on tablet, and on Samsung and Panasonic Smart TV under the Fishing TV app.

Des is on his favourite river, the Severn at Hampton Loade, as he shows how he goes about targeting specimen chub from big, powerful waterways like this using quivertipped bread tactics. There’s more action from the Severn in the issue as well, as Mark Barrett jumps aboard Nige Williams’ boat and the pair go in search of sport with pike and zander.


If match fishing is more your bag, don’t miss the new episode of ‘Will Raison’s Match Year’, as the former world champ reveals his latest twist on fishing The Method, including the deadly ‘hinge’ set-up.

Gareth Purnell continues his exclusive series of interviews with Jeremy Wade, as the River Monsters presenter discusses why bull sharks are heading hundreds of miles upriver into fresh water. Plus we’ve clips from Kev Green’s popular ‘Improve Your Coarse Fishing’ programme about targeting those commercial fishery roach that are growing nice and fat on the high protein baits we are feeding, while Duncan Charman goes trotting on the River Wey.

Tackle wise, we take a close up look at the new Scatterap lures from Rapala; Marukyu’s new imitation sweetcorn; some special socks that are going to keep your toes toasty as the mercury plunges; and a spotlight on the Shimano Stradic Ci4 reel. Plus MAP’s improved hooklength storage system.

There’s also more from the ‘Caught In The Act’ crew as Bob Roberts goes fishing for big chub in the snow, and bags some beauties.
Find out how to make and use krilled maggots; how to correctly hook a sardine for pike fishing; and about pike float choice – plus we have the only video news bulletin for coarse and match anglers with pictures of the second biggest pike ever landed in Britain; and an update on the 2014 Riverfest series.

All this and more is in Issue 21 of ‘Coarse And Match Fishing’ – the video magazine for coarse and match anglers everywhere.
