Craig. last time I fished this around 6 weeks ago it was either pellet over dampened micros or chompie to the far bank. Pretty standard canalised commercial tactics and stocking. Feed margins for fishing in the last hour or so. Not been on Highbank for years...

Craig,peg 29 is the one next to end peg 30 on horseshoe.If someone is in peg 30, 29 wont get half the fish as peg 30 will because the fish tend to be in the reeds and under the bushes on peg 30.Get a sliced loaf and cut off the crusts with a pair of scissors.then cut the crusts into about 1 inch pieces for the hook.Its about 16 mtrs to the far bank on peg 29.Tight lines mate.
