Stacks of skim­mers, with lots of small roach com­ing through, which is a good sign. Phil Mat­tock bagged 21 skim­mers in a three­hour ses­sion for 22 lb 10 oz.

For the skim­mers, pole with cast­ers over a light, fluffy ground­bait, Phil used a 50/50 mix of Sen­sas Black Lake and Sen­sas For­mula Supreme. Un­usu­ally, an­glers have been suc­cess­ful with wag­gler and mag­gots, balling in ground­bait to start and sit­ting on it till the skim­mers turn up. The roach are be­ing caught close in on a top kit or 2.5 m whip with mag­gots over ground­bait.
