Alan Scotthorne reports back from an interesting couple of weeks at Lindholme Lakes, which culminated in last weekend’s Angling Trust Winter League Semi Final.
Meat has been playing a major role in Alan’s approach at Lindholme.
I have not regularly fished at Lindhome for the past 12 months, so it was nice to have the Semi Final there and really get stuck into some full-on practice. That would give myself and the team — now officially known as Drennan Barnsley Blacks — the best chance of qualifying for the Angling Trust Winter League Final later this summer.
Temperatures had started to lift and the carp and F1s had started to feed well, so the approach of catching silvers with casters was almost out of the equation with weights too high for this approach of a month ago when we first started practicing. Meat and pellets were now the number one baits, so I want to just have a look at the last two matches I fished before the Semi itself.
