Bait and tackle preparation is an important aspect of my approach to any session, especially bait. As per usual, my preparation for this session began a week in advance, and my Tuesday night was dedicated to rolling bait. For this specific session, I decided to test a new variation of my standard, homemade boilies.
On the Friday, after work, we set off to our chosen swim on the Vaal River. I hadn’t fished the swim in the past, but from what I could gather from the local anglers, it was deep water and a few decent fish have been caught here in the past.
