With the river season approaching my attention will turn from still waters and canals to flowing water. Friday morning we ventured out in search of tench on a local lake, we used our standard approach for tench fishing a waggler over depth and bait was red maggot and corn. We caught 3 tench along with some skimmers and good stamp of roach. This is a pretty standard when targeting tench with such baits. However this has got me thinking of perhaps trotting corn this coming season for roach. When targeting roach on flowing water I trot the standard maggot,tare,bread punch,caster etc, Iv fished corn on a swim feeder many of time on river which has always caught bream and good roach but Iv never attempted trotting it. Anyone attempted this approach??
