I normally fish a few opens at Viaduct over the summer but they haven’t got much availability currently so I signed up to fish a river match on the Somerset Frome as it‘s only a mile or so from my front door. It is an open put on by my club, and the first match on the river for years. I last fished a river match as a ten year old, 45 years ago. I have only fished the river a few times for chub on a lead for a couple of hours at a time, using gear I would fish for match carp on a commercial, to get some relaxation in. it’s a lovely stretch, not fished much, slow moving, 5’ + or so deep I think ( I have never float fished), 12-15m across, containing chub (which go to 4lb plus, roach, dace, perch and the odd bream I have read. I have no idea how to approach such a match. I was thinking of a feeder/lead with meat Or bread for chub, a waggler with maggot/casters and groundbait Mixed with fine soil, maybe my pole, though I have never used it on a river. How would you approach such a match?
