We have all heard tales of fisherman who, often out of desperation, have hoiked a piece of pork or beef from their sandwiches, attached it to a hook and caught a massive barbel. But being Honest, if cuts of beef mutton and pork were all consistent, we would be using them every day because they are far easier to obtain and use than maggots and worms.
Lovely Luncheon Meat
On rivers as far apart as the Hampshire Avon and the Yorkshire Ouse luncheon meat is both popular and successful. Barbel, Chub and Carp all succumb to it. Luncheon meet is available in tins and fresh form the delicatessen, Both types of their devotees.
Fresh Luncheon Meat is easier to keep on the hook than the tinned variety. Buy it in a 1lb block rather than sliced (you can always freeze half for the next time you go fishing. Cut the rest into cubes and store it in a polythene bag to prevent it from drying out.
