Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

2016 Maver Match This cham­pion Jon Whin­cup says: Tackle: “If you’re fish­ing Danny’s Is­land Lake, pick a peg with the is­land in front of you to give you op­tions. Start on the Method feeder tight to the is­land, us­ing a rod of at least 12ft so that you get re­ally tight to the fea­ture. Use a 0.20mm hook­length to help beat ev­ery­thing that swims.”

Tac­tics: “Start by chuck­ing the Method feeder but keep trick­ling a few pel­lets in by hand around 6m out. Give this short line time to set­tle but be pre­pared to find carp well into dou­ble fig­ures in the last cou­ple of hours.”

Baits: “Pel­lets are hard to beat here at the mo­ment. Use damp­ened 2mm mi­cros around the Method, with a 6mm or 8mm banded pel­let as hook­bait.”
