Scotthorne’s Maggot Feeder Tricks

Alan Scotthorne shows you some really clever tips for catching more fish with a block-end swim­feeder approach in the latest Angling Times. 


Inside, he flexes his 10ft Ultralight Bomb at Hayton Lakes near Retford and com­bines it with our excel­lently designed Feederbombs.

That said, I also really do enjoy com­peting in these high standard matches and fishing against some of the top con­tin­ental anglers.

The annual Sensas Festival is run over two days with one match on a series of lakes at Châteaudun close to Chartres to the west of Paris and the other day on the nearby River Loir. The event is run on points, so a sec­tion win on each day would guar­antee you being in the money. With €4,000 to the winner and paying the top 15 anglers, there was a few quid up for grabs!

I had my son, Oliver, with me for com­pany and he has been fishing really well in the past 12 months. It’s nice to travel with someone that you can bounce a few ideas off with two days prac­tice before the matches start. Continue reading
