Dabber, the section near Soutfield reservoir is Beever Bridge.

Lots of Perch and Roach, with odd skimmer.

Line 1 - Chopped worm with maggot over the top at about 6m, just over the rocks. 6 laccy, 0.10 line to an 18/20 hook. About 10 worms and a few casters and fish the bait out.

Line 2 - Squatt over groundbait at 9/10 metres. 6 balls of g-bait at start and feed squatt over the top and maybe some hemp. Supercup, brown crrumb and damp leam in g-bait. 0.08 / 0.06 hooklength to 24 fine wire hook, 3 laccy

Line 3 - Big maggot at 14.5m. Feed maggots with a catty and maggot on the hook. 0.10 hooklength, 20 hook, 5 laccy. 1.5 to 2g float. This should be your quality Roach rig. Bronze maggot usually best.

There are other things you could do, but these are the simnplest and best. Good luck [:D]
