  3. Considering New Rods

    I have a pair of cork handled 101s, 50 quid each at the time on a water where I needed something with a bit of a backbone. They are fantastic for the money, highly recommended. It really is amazing how much did you can now get for your money in the 50-100 bracket

  15. Mainlines latest offering The Link

    There in lies the answer, it's the going bait because everyone is using it so it's going to catch the majority of fish. I've mentioned before I know your water and am friends with a couple of members, one uses nothing but mainline shelf life banoffee and catches from there, I think we sometimes put too much emphasis on bait. I'd be tempted to go with the singles approach or small pva bags just trying to by a bite and maybe repositioning every hour or so fishing for a bite at a time
