Float fishing with hemp and tares can offer excellent Roach sport throughout the Summer and Autumn.
Bread flake or Cheese paste for Chub. Particles, maggots and Casters are worthy baits for Barbel and Chub. Don't rule out artificial baits if small fish keep stripping the hook.
Use pellets with care! It is very easy to over feed and pre-occupy the fish.
