I would guess he will be fishing Silver Lake as they say that is their match lake.
Fished there probably 5 years ago. Looks like they have done some changes to the lakes since then and got a few more big carp in. Never really found it the most inspiring place despite the woodland location.
interesting rule on umbrellas though. Do they even do green match branded umbrellas these days?
I can't substantiate if the lake your fishing has been remodelled Bill....If not, tight over with the method/hybrid etc is the way.....It was well snaggy and you literally had to hold the feeder rod and pick up on first indications or the carp would do you in the snags....Pole fishing was all but useless, doing gear in the reeds across etc.....Be prepared to up the gear and inevitable tackle losses .....Most swims are only an underarm chuck....Be lucky....
Then again Bill, if the lake has been remodelled (and hopefully snags removed, including old tackle) then the above would be an overkill....Sorry I can't be more help. The reason we binned the lake off was because the lake became a tackle eater and it got rather expensive. .....You had to fish tight over to the snags to get bites and compete in matches. They weren't big fish just those 2 to 4 pounders that given a chance would snag you.
