Right lads I'm back with more (for you people obvious questions) info, I was fishing my local pond, Birkwood in Altofts, I had a pretty poor time, around half a dozen small roach, nothing of any weight, the guy next door to me was pulling out good sized Carp. I had a nose as to the depth he was fishing, size float etc and all seemed similar to mine. The only difference was bait, he was telling a guy that he used pellets, now I've googled pellets and as per everything else for a newbie there appear to be lots. I'm into pleasure fishing but also want to catch, can someone recommend the best pellets? Are they like grain? Do you have to put a hook through every individual pellet?
I know the answer is gonna be obvious to the majority of you but it's difficult for us newbies!😃
