What’s be­ing caught? I fea­tured this venue just a few weeks ago, but the bream sport in the early pegs in the woods has been so good it has to get an­other men­tion. In the re­cent Open match, pegs 1 to 10 pro­duced three 60 lb bags, two 50s, a big 40 and two 30s, 35 lb be­ing only good enough for eighth place in the ten pegs! Well worth a trip be­fore the weather gets too cold. Tac­tics? Long-range ground­bait feeder with cast­ers and chopped worm, us­ing worms or mag­gots on the hook, for the best sport.
