Mashed bread does without question among the finest weapons in the winter chub angler's armoury. It is tremendously reliable at attracting chub right into your swim as well as putting them in an eating state of mind. It could be utilized in small balls as loose feed or in a cage feeder. Often it's a great idea to pop a couple of small spheres of mashed bread right into a swim 15 or 20 mins before angling, merely to obtain them mooching concerning for even more. When mushed up bread is ready correctly you wind up with a wonderful moist, stodgy combination, that once it gets in the water begins to destroy up almost quickly. As the mash begins to descend down to the base, sheets of bread will certainly be escaping and the sphere of mash soon separates completely. It leaves an attracting path of smidgens of mash throughout the water columns. It's a technique that seldom over feeds the fish, because of the size of the little bits that destroy away.

I additionally have access to bowl-shaped sieves as well as screens. Again if you do not, then include the water a little each time, combining thoroughly, till you achieve the best consistency. This could be done at the waterside very easily.

Just what is the appropriate uniformity? Well that's down to experimentation. However I would say that on getting in the water, you want the mash to begin cracking up right away. If you are angling in quicker water or it's bitterly cool, then you can make it merely a little stiffer, so that it starts to destroy down nearer all-time low, which is where the chub are likely to want to feed in significant sub-zero disorders.
