Local expert and Brookside regular Dave Williams TACTICS “I fished four lines, three pole and one feeder to features. I fished down the edge using pellets and then two lines, one at 6m and one at 8m, in around 6ft of water.
“My feeder rig was cast to features, including the island.” TACKLE: “My feeder rig was made up of a 24g Guru Hybrid feeder with a size 14 hook on a short 4ins hooklink.
My margin pole rig was made up of a 0.6g pole float and 0.15mm to 0.13mm, while on the two other lines I could scale down to a 0.13mm mainline. Size 16-18 fairly strong hooks are ideal for these lines.” BAITS: “Pellets form the mainstay of the attack here and I fed 6mm down the edge and at 8m out.
“On my 6m line I fed chopped worm and fished worm over the top in case the carp were wary of pellets. My feeder rig had Bait-Tech The Juice Dumbells 8mm sinkers.
