The River Yare is a powerful tidal river with two main approaches, namely the feeder and the pole. Bream win most of the matches here with open-end feeder tactics and groundbait being the best method. You’ll need a good selection of leads too as the flow can be quite strong at times. Most of the time weights between 44g and 60g will be about right.
The pole line can produce some very big catches of roach at certain times and most anglers tend to fish this with poles from 11m to 14.5m in conjunction with groundbait and casters. Target weights can vary but it’s not uncommon to see roach weights up to 30lb and bream weights much higher.
