Improve Your Coarse FishingWading On the Wye
Wading offers a new perspective for coarse anglers. Adam Fisher wallows in the delights as he sets foot in the River Wye., where he's after chub on the stick float.

There's More Roach Than Water
Well, it certainly seems that way as Mark Price got stuck into cracking commercial water roach at Yorkshire's Sykehouse fishery, surely one of the UK's best redfin waters.

And, indeed, worth the wait. For specimen roach that is. Part One of Julian Chidgey's campaign for fine silvers.

Winter Carp Love A Flavour Cone
Carp may be genetically programmed to reduce their food intake during winter, but Adam Rooney shows how a flavoured 'cone' of pellets can spur them into feeding throughout the shorter days of the year. And it didn't take long for him to bag a quality 30lb net from a popular commercial.

Boost Pellets With Baby Formula
Jonny Watt is a thinking angler who's always looking for an 'edge'. This time he's been checking about supermarket baby milk formula products and using it on pellets.

Going For Silver
There's nothing to rival a netful of winter roach and skimmers. James Robbins shows how to catch them by fining down his approach and using dark groundbait.

Lure Them In
The sheer number of lures is bewildering, buy IYCF's Underwater experts describe some of the essential differences and show how their favourites perform beneath the surface.

Tie A Maggot Feeder For Chub
Chub have huge mouths and voracious appetites, but they can be shy and finicky and a small bait can work in winter when a lump of bait won't. Try IYCF's maggot feeder.

Thinking Carp
How garlic works wonders, how to delicately pop-up your hookbait and the bait changes that can give you the edge when it gets cold.


New Gear
Rods, floats and liquid boosters to catch fish, scales to weigh them, something to keep you warm while doing so, plus a book and DVD.
