Tight Lines this week…

Friday 10th September               7:00pm Sky Sports 3
Sat.      2.30am Sky Sports 2
7.00am Sky Sports 4
This week the focus will be on specimen fishing and Keith will be joined by Ian Welch, an angler who’s enjoyed great success in that field. Ian will have stacks of advice to help you catch bigger and better fish, whatever you’re preferred target.
If there’s anything you want to ask Keith or Ian please get your question in as soon as possible via an e-mail to tightlines@skysports.com and they’ll do their best to help.
You can see Nigel Botherway in action on the beautiful River Wye in Herefordshire. He spent a session on the renowned stretch of water near Ross-on Wye in search of some prime late summer barbel, and he certainly wasn’t to be disappointed.
Keith also gets out on the bank to demonstrate his tactics for fishing the margins at commercial waters. Neglected by many anglers, these areas are often home to specimen sized fish that can be caught using a relatively simple approach.
And in Fishery Focus Keith will have his low-down on the prospects for all anglers around the UK this weekend. There’ll be details on the conditions you can expect and the most effective methods and baits to use at some typical venues.
Sea fishing takes centre stage on Tight Lines next week when Keith’s guest will be Dave Lewis. As a journalist, consultant and vastly experienced angler both home and abroad, he’ll have plenty of advice to help you enjoy the sport around our shoreline.
Please keep the questions, and your photos for the ‘Young Angler of the Month’ competition, coming in via e-mail to tightlines@skysports.com.
And a reminder that if you do miss the broadcasts on Sky Sports, the whole programme will be available as a podcast after the show on Friday evening via our website – www.skysports.com/tightlines.
