This way of fishing with bread is very popular with pole fisherman ad match fisherman when roach and dace are the target fish.

So what is the point of a bread punch?

Well its a great way of presenting a small piece of bread on a small hook with little effort. When the roach and dace start to feed on bread punch it can offer big nets and weights.

There are many types of bread punches on the market but they all do the same job. The one I use has a rotating head with various sizes on it. This takes up less space in the tackle box and can easily be slipped in the front of a bait apron or waterproofs.

So how do you use them properly?

First of all get a slice of bread and a bread punch ready. Place the bread on a hard flat surface and select the correct size of punch you want. Then press the punch down into the bread and twist about 180°. Then lift the punch from the bread and you should be left with a little circle of bread in the end of the punch.

Get your hook and and hook it into the bread somewhere near the middle and gently pull. You should then be left with a perfect circle of punched bread presented nicely on the hook.

There is one drawback with this method. Because of the way it's put on you can't cast very far without it falling off so you need to either fish in the margins or with a pole.
