Rolling Baits

posted Aug 05, 2011 17:57:52 by leew1977
HI
With the Severn being a bit out of sorts recently being low and all i decided to try the Teme around worcester. With little success other than plenty of chub on static baits.My father-in-law who used to fish the teme regularly suggested freelined or rolled baits and said he'd come along to show me how its done, so i got him a guest ticket and off we went.Oh boy did he show me check out my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1311255598 to see the pictures of the biggest barbel i've ever seen at just under 14lb on a great big lump of freelined cheese.All i could catch were chub so i went home with my tail between my legs.Got to admit with the low conditions this freelined/stalking approach is addictive polarised glasses are a must though. Was just wondering has anyone on hear got any tips/stories on this method??

Had another session on the teme since i originally posted this same tactics freelined cheese/meat its amazing how well this works. I would really advise anyone who hasn't fished the teme for ages to give it a try its alive with fish i caught 6 chub 3 barbel and a couple of chublets in 5 hours.I also managed to get a couple of snaps of barbel shoaled up on one of the gravel runs http://tightlinesontheriversevern.blogspot.com/check out the pictures. Also got to try my hand at self photography which wasn't half as tricky as i thought it would be!!!!
