General

A week of exception catches or hard work depending on wind, moon phases, and angling skills, equipment used, also of the use of anglers knowledge of  watercraft.

The tip this week has outshone every method of angling followed by pole, waggler & ledgering. Angel pellets doing very well as feed and mixed into paste, or micros as a groundbait (full of fish meal), try mixing chopped worm or casters or maggots with groundbait to get fab results.  Hook baits working are paste, pellet, worm both on its own and as cocktail, maggot, caster and sweetcorn, hair-rigged or banded pellet to 15 mm bringing out some good lumps to 29lb 10oz, and cubed or punched luncheon  meat also doing the business.

Tip and pole working very well this week however some very still calm water this week has not helped fishing, once a ripple occurred fishing much better.
