River 20 On E-Sox Tackle

Steve Crowe from Norwich is having a great pike season after landing yet another spe­cimen from a Norfolk river during an early morning session.

A very pleased Steve com­mented: “It made get­ting up early and sit­ting in the dark in sub-zero tem­per­at­ures worth­while that morning!”

Midweek Win For Marlow

roger-marlow-lakeviewRoger Marlow braved the con­di­tions to win the latest mid­week open con­test at Leicestershire’s Lakeview Fishery with an impressive 72lb bag of carp and F1s.

The England Veteran and Drennan Leicester team man caught all of his fish on red maggot at six and 11 metres.

A fine 0.08mm Double Strength hook­length matched to a size 22 Silverfish Maggot was chosen to present single and double red maggot hook baits. On a tough, win­tery day he also opted for a slim AS3 pole float in 0.2g and 0.3g sizes. This design is an excel­lent choice  for winter carp, as the rel­at­ively fine 1.2mm hollow bristle can be ‘dotted down’ to a pimple, to help spot the shyest of bites.
