John Bailey invites us to join him for a session on his beloved River Wensum in Norfolk. It's late November and the elements are stacked against him, the river's low, clear and cold but John is sure he can catch a Chub or two. He's keeping his options open with 3 different set ups, firstly ledgering with chunks of bread, then trotting with maggots and a centre pin reel and finally holding a piece of meat up against the current on the bottom. Find out which of these works best. To watch this video now, just login or register
Bob James continues his session on the River Wye, this time targeting the Barbel. Having regularly chucked balls of groundbait into the spot where he thinks they will be lurking, he's convinced the Barbel will have bullied the Chub out of the swim by now. He steps up his gear for the bigger fish, using a boilie on a hair rig for hook bait, heli-rigged below a cage feeder. He's also switched to a fixed spool reel with a bait runner, to make casting the feeder a bit easier. It all works incredibly well and from the comfort of his bank chair he hooks into some marvellous barbel. To watch this video now, just login or register
Join the legendary Bob James in a two part session on the picture postcard River Wye. He's after chub and barbel, but the river is running low and the water very clear, so he knows the fish will be spooky. He starts by baiting his chosen swim at least an hour before casting in, to allow the fish to start fighting over the food. In this first episode he goes after the chub, trotting a hard pellet hookbait, holding it up against the current with his centre pin reel and a large, heavy float. By regularly baiting the swim to keep the fish feeding he shows how easy it can be to land some decent chub or two. To watch this video now, go to Fishing TV and register.

In the first episode of On the Bank with Andy Ford and Rob Hughes the pair begin by visiting the Nadder and the Avon, both Wiltshire chalkstreams, for some winter river fishing. They run into a few dace, lots and lots of grayling, and even a decent chub. Later on Rob heads to France to target his favourite species - carp - at a little known small stillwater; and Fordy meets the Angling Trust's volunteer bailiffs, to learn about their important work.
