Furzton on top form for roach ac­tion


Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

MOST peo­ple see Furzton Lake as a spec­i­men carp wa­ter, but the Mil­ton Keynes venue has pro­duced some re­mark­able bags of roach in re­cent weeks. Dur­ing a re­cent three-day Ir­ish­style fes­ti­val an­glers sacked up with qual­ity redfins on the pole, with in­di­vid­ual fish top­ping 1lb.

The top weights have fallen to caster and mag­got hook­baits, but start your ses­sion by feed­ing balls of ground­bait at around 11m-13m. A strung-out shot­ting pat­tern will make sure that your hook­bait falls slowly through the wa­ter lay­ers, al­low­ing the fish to in­ter­cept it at any depth.

Use mag­gots or cast­ers on the hook and keep fir­ing out free­bies on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. PRICES: £6 adults, £3.50 con­ces­sions CON­TACT: Mil­ton Keynes An­gling Cen­tre on 01908 374400 LO­CA­TION: Furzton Lake, Shir­well Cres­cent, Mil­ton Keynes, MK4 1GA RULES: No lit­ter­ing, all fish to be re­turned to the lake
