VENUE IN­SIDER

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

Shi­mano-backed star and venue ex­pert Nick Speed Tackle: “A 12ft rod lets you eas­ily cast be­yond your start­ing point if the fish back off. Use 6lb Shi­mano Ex­age main­line with an 0.18mm hook­length – strong enough to beat any­thing that swims in Wors­brough at this time.” Bait: “I like a blend of ground­bait and damp­ened 2mm mi­cro pel­lets around the Method feeder. A ground­bait high in fish­meal will ap­peal to both tar­get species. Ro­tate hook­baits through­out the day be­tween dead mag­gots, banded pel­lets and even mini boilies. A pink 7mm Dy­na­mite Baits Swim stim Match Mini is par­tic­u­larly ef­fec­tive.” Tac­tics: “Start by cast­ing around 40m out and ex­pect the tip to fly around within 5-10 min­utes – fish are at­tracted by the noise. If bites stop, un­clip the Method and chuck a few me­tres fur­ther out to re­lo­cate the shoal.”
