North ‘Sheffield silver’ and hot pegs
RECOMMENDED ASTON PARK FISHERIES, SHEFFIELD, RUNNING
THE complex is producing good nets in open matches, but it’s not carp making the running.
Aston Park regular James Hall won a competition with 76lb 12oz of ide and silverfish from peg 12 on Butts Lake when others were catching carp. James fished caster short a
He fished caster short at 6m and on the deck and fed every 20 seconds to keep the fish interested. Worm at 10m over casters has also found plenty of ide on Butts, and the odd carp.
On Lily Lake near-100lb bags of small carp and silvers are being taken by those fishing banded pellet shallow at 15m and maggot on the deck at 6m. Similar sport is being had on Lanta Lake, with 35lb bags of ide and mixed silvers claiming podium positions in matches. Maggot fished shallow at 12m is working incredibly well, as too is pellet over to the island.
As you can see, it’s silverfish mania at the moment, so get yourself down there now and
see if you can catch yourself 50lb without a single carp showing! PRICES: £6 adults and £5 concessions – on your next visit, bring back your day ticket as it will be entered into a prize draw for a brand new Browning fishing rod
