MAGNA POOL

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

At just over half-an-acre, and bor­dered by trees on one side, Magna is per­fect for get­ting away for a few hours’ fish­ing in peace and quiet. Spec­i­men carp into dou­ble fig­ures can be caught fish­ing to the is­land on the bomb with pel­lets, or on the wag­gler with corn or triple mag­got on the hook. The real se­cret here, how­ever, is the roach and perch sport – both species can be caught to 3lb. The roach are fairly easy to lo­cate and can be caught from all pegs, although the base of the near shelf in around 5ft of wa­ter is the best place to start. Feed a pot of mi­cro pel­lets and mag­gots at the start of your ses­sion and keep feed­ing mag­gots via a pole pot to keep the roach com­ing. Fish of 8oz will ap­pear first but soon the big­ger redfins will mus­cle in – es­pe­cially on half den­drobaena hook­baits. As for the perch, the best ar­eas are on the wooded bank with the cor­ner swims favoured. Use a pole pot to feed a com­bi­na­tion of chopped worms, prawns and dead mag­gots into the mar­gins and fish two worm halves over the top.
