Uncover Hot Spots                                                                             

In the river, there are a few common hot spots that tend to hold quite a few fish. Ideally you want to be looking for things like weeds in the river; these provide cover for fish, especially in a river that doesn't have much weed growth.

Another river fishing hotspot is the islands. These can be found in most rivers around the UK. They provide a great opportunity to attract a cluster of different fish species however; you should consider safety before diving in too deep.

Polarised Glasses

If you are planning to become an expert in river fishing or even if you just want to improve your chances, polarised glasses are definitely the way to go. They will help you to locate fish that are swimming around the river, making them ideal for those who just want a quick fishing session. They will help to save time searching for fishing hotspots and may help your chances of catching a big one!

Stop for a chat

If you are going as a pair, group or even on your own, there is nothing stopping you from striking up a conversation with a few of the locals. Not only can you share your experiences, you can provide each other with advice, tips and tricks on fishing in general! (They may even point out some of the best spots)

Enjoy yourself

There is nothing worse than coming back from a trip feeling stressed out and tired, so try to enjoy yourself. Even if you don't get a nibble one day, soak up the mild autumn weather and try again the next day! You can also make the most of your trip by - again - striking up a conversation with fellow fishers and remembering that you are living the dream.
