I’m blown away by what my pole can do

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

MY FIRST-ever pole ar­rived and off to Aldin Grange I went.

I plumped for the Middy Nano Core XT15 thanks to re­views, at­tached a ready-made rig and shipped out for the first time to plumb up. Then it struck me just how easy and pre­cise it was. I found my­self in­stantly able to gauge depth with ex­treme ac­cu­racy at any length I wanted and find all sorts of fea­tures. I was blown away!

Within 30 sec­onds of my first put-in the float went and it was fish on! The elas­tic did its job and I let the fish run un­til I felt in con­trol and shipped back. Then I un­shipped my top kit and played the 1lb tench into my net.

I re­baited and shipped out again – 30 sec­onds later I was land­ing an ide of just over 1lb and I con­tin­ued to bag up for the next five hours!

The ac­cu­racy and pre­ci­sion af­forded by the pole was sim­ply un­beat­able. Buy­ing it was the best thing I’ve ever done in fish­ing since catch­ing that first min­now in about 1979! Gary Foster, email
