Drennan Bordon’s Russ Grimes reports back from two successful White Acres Festivals where plenty of valuable lessons were learnt.
The beautiful White Acres Holiday Park near Newquay, Cornwall.
Russ Grimes, Drennan Bordon.
As always I was looking forward to getting to White Acres in Cornwall for the Bait-Tech Festival. This year I was going to stay for two weeks as the Dynamite Festival followed on without a break!
As a normal everyday weekend angler I really look forward to these events, as you are fishing five days on the trot and get to rub shoulders with the best in the game. The amount you can learn is paramount to improving your all-round ability, both by keeping your eyes open during the matches and the chit chat after the matches. And as always you get to meet up with anglers that you only get to see there — it’s like a small home coming!
This week’s Angling Times announces the overall winner of the hotly contested Drennan Cup! In the same issue, the newly crowned specimen champion passes on 50 of the very best fish-catching tips to try.
Martin Bowler also stars inside as he passes on some enlightening advice on catching big roach on mini boilies.

Many thanks to Paul Garrett for sending us these great photos of a recent Suffolk tench he caught using a Drennan Specialist Tench and Bream rod
“I had 5 tench in a 20hr session the biggest going 7lb 12oz… not bad for the first week of April! Others included 3 x males going 5–8, 5–12,5–14.
All were caught using my Drennan Specialist Tench & Bream Rods, Drennan Gravel Braid, Specimen hooks & inline flat method feeders.”
