THE latest issue of Midland Angler, the only newspaper exclusively for anglers in the heart of England, inculdes some quite brilliant tips from Roy Marlow on how to fish popped-up, hair rigged bread on commercial waters. Using two consistencies of bread, he shows how you can vary the rate the bread sinks through the water to create a hook bait the carp simply cant resist.
