Tares and preparing and using Tares for Fishing
Tares are brown in colour, the size of a pea and used along with hemp
are a great bait for catching big roach. Other fish take tares but
predominantly they are a roach bait. Tares are classed as a summer
bait but can be used from summer right through the winter.
Preparing tares for fishing.
Preparing tares for fishing is similar to preparing hemp. Soak in
water overnight then put into a pan with 1 teaspoon of bi-carbonate of
soda per half pound of tares. Bring to the boil then simmer for 20 to
30 minutes and keep testing them to see when they soften. You don't
want tares to split or get too soft or you end up with tares like
mushy peas. The bi-carbonate of soda is used to turn the tares black.
After simmering leave to cool then put into handy pint sized bags. Any
not going to be used immediately for fishing can be put in the freezer
and used another time.
Tackle and method.
As with hemp fishing, light tackle is best when roach fishing with
tares. Main line around 2lb to 2.5lb with hook lengths around 1lb to
1.5lb. and a size 16 wide gape hook. The float will depend on the
water you are fishing but the shotting should be strung out shirt
button style. Hook the tare through the skin.
Start by fishing hemp on the hook and feeding hemp with one or two
tares to get the fish feeding. The roach should start feeding within
half an hour or so but I have known it take 4 hours. When you get the
fish feeding the bites can be pretty fast and positive. If you find
you are missing bites the fish could be mistaking your shot on your
line for hemp and going for that instead, if this happens try doubling
up the shot on your line.
When the fish start taking the hemp positively, try putting a tare on
the hook. If no bites go back to hemp. Don’t spend too long fishing
tares on the hook if your not getting bites. Keep trying a tare now
and again until you start to catch. Fishing with tares will also sort
out the better stamp of fish.
After a fishing session any leftover tares and hemp can be frozen
and used another time. Tares that have been frozen seem to be easier
