ROSE­MARY WOOD FISH­ERY, HASKAYNE, LANCS

AN­GLERS vis­it­ing Rose­mary Wood fish­ery are en­joy­ing 100lb nets of carp.

Both lakes here have been on fire but some of the best sport has been on the five-acre Moss Lake. Venue boss Phil De­whurst says this pool is one of the best pel­let wag­gler wa­ters in the re­gion, and this method is still catch­ing lots of carp to dou­ble fig­ures.

Us­ing 8mm-10mm pel­lets, keep the feed go­ing in and fish a 10mm ver­sion over the top. As the weather cools the fish will move out into the deeper wa­ter and this is when bomb and pel­let come into play. Be pa­tient and wait for the bite when us­ing this method.

The carp go to 20lb-plus in this lake and an­glers at night have caught some lumps on pel­lets.

If carp aren’t your thing, skim­mer nets top 30lb from most pegs and these fish can pretty much be fished for ex­clu­sively.

Feed damp­ened mi­cro pel­lets and fish a 4mm ex­pander or mag­got over the top on the deck at 6m-8m.

It’s also worth loose­feed­ing some cast­ers or mag­gots on a long pole line for the ide, which run to over 4lb. Start on the bot­tom with a piece of worm or caster on the hook and shal­low up to fol­low the fish as the ses­sion pro­gresses.

PRICES: £6 one rod, £10 two, con­ces­sions £5 one rod, 24 hours (on Moss Lake only) £20 for two rods.
