In Matchman on the River, England international match angler Darren Cox invites us to join him on a session, fishing for Chub and Barbel on the Warwickshire Avon. He's found a secluded swim on the Back Brook where there is a well established head of chub. They have recently been joined by an increasing number of large Barbel. He is determined to show that his well honed match skills and tactics can be applied to catching wily river fish this like these. Using casters and hemp for bait, he trots a stick float on the current and explains how moving your weights on the line can help presentation. By regularly feeding the swim he's able to draw the fish out from under cover of the far bank, with great results.
