you can use only Barbless hooks and im not too sure but i think nuts are banned there ....... not too sure of any other restictions ...... you can use ground bait in moderation ..... Yes mate i could do with a lift there but my mate is going in his as he has to get off straight after the match .....
Well thought i would have a couple of hours on the small lake on Sunday.
To test it out , Here is what i found, which im sharing with you all.
Someone said Chopped worm was the meathod, so i came armed with some and half a pint of casters. Sat on Peg 26 fished to the island (about 12meters) and got bites straight away , but i kept bumping them, I was on a 6 elastic 0.10 all the way through size 18 hooks and could only manage to land the small fish if i shipped my pole back really carefull. Roach and small carp where the only fish feeding (the carp where tiny), but i was getting loads of bites, so all in all quite a good day. I spoke to the owner he says forget the chopped worm and stick to maggots . Im coming armed with No 4 elastic on match day, with my 1 lb hook lengths (I recon the small fish will still be feeding on match day.)
Anyway its a nice little spot, but i have to tell you its muddy, and i mean muddy so come prepared.! Im looking forward to it even more now!! See you there Mal (MrC)
Is it possible for me to join this match? I only started fishing again last year and have never fished a match. Any help would be greatly appreciated as would any hints or tips. I have a keepnet (never used) anything else I need? Please go gently on me...
