North ‘Sh­effield sil­ver’ and hot pegs


Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

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
