For plea­sure an­glers with swims saved ex­clu­sively for them ev­ery day

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

This is ar­guably the pick of the bunch for feeder sport. Use a 30g Method feeder and an 11ft rod and you can reach the island from any peg. Ex­pect big F1s and carp to 15lb to 6mm or 8mm hard pel­let hook­baits.

Cast ev­ery five min­utes at the start of the ses­sion to get the shoals com­pet­ing. It’s also worth feed­ing a bomb line in open wa­ter, con­stantly feed­ing a few 8mm pel­lets. Once you cast over the top of this area the ac­tion is of­ten in­stant, and bites can be re­ally sav­age! An Island Pool carp comes to the land­ing net. It may be the small­est pool on site but it can pro­duce big bags. If you en­joy catch­ing a fish ev­ery drop-in then long pole and soft pel­let tactics will pay div­i­dends.

One bite could pro­duce a 2lb skim­mer, the next a 4lb F1, and yet another a dou­ble-fig­ure carp.

Rod-and-line an­glers also score well, and the pegs in the mid­dle of the pool re­spond well to both the bomb and pel­let and the pel­let wag­gler.

The mar­gins are a lit­tle hit and miss but they are worth feed­ing and try­ing later in the day for a short while as big fish move in. BOSSES at Manor Farm Leisure have teamed up with Angling Times to give one lucky reader a three-day hol­i­day for two in one of their car­a­vans this au­tumn. To be in with a chance of win­ning this fan­tas­tic prize worth just an­swer one sim­ple ques­tion: An­swers on a post­card to Manor Farm hol­i­day comp, Angling Times, Lynch­wood, Peter­bor­ough, Cambs, PE2 6EA
