ANGLER'S MAIL is number one for tips and tricks! Here's another bait suggestion served up by Bill Rushmer.

I have always been a fan of wet bread but, at times, I like to use a slightly modified form.

Instead of soaking my bread initially in water, I use salty water made by adding one tablespoon of salt to a pint of water.

After leaving it to soak for five minutes the bread is removed and placed between two sheets of newspaper.

The wrapped bread is then placed under a couple of heavy books overnight.

The resultant bread is dense, soft with a slightly salty taste. I only use salt in the hook bait.

Get out there and give wet bread a try for roach, bream, chub, carp and more! It’s cheap, and it works.
