Details:
The river lea flows from near Luton threading its way through North and East London, past the where the Olympic site is and enters the Thames near the Thames barrier.
Not that many years ago this water was highly polluted and not worth fishing, it has been cleaned up since then and now holds good shoals of fish and with it being tidal towards the Thames you can even expect the occasional flatfish to show up.

Tactics:
This is a relatively slow moving river so light ledgering with an open cage feeder should provide a decent catch. Trotting a float through some of the higher sections of the river can be good for enticing a Chub


Baits:
Lobworms will attract the hungry Chub. Bread and maggots will get the Bream and Roach biting. Boilies and Pellets can attract the occasional Barbel though these are few and far between in the river.
