Spotlight On….. Bait-Tech Juice Dumbells

The Bait-Tech Juice Dumbells came out in 2017 following on from the release of the massively popular ‘The Juice’ glug the previous year. Bait-Tech sent me out a package of all their new products and I have to admit I was more excited about trying the groundbaits and the Plum liquid than the Dumbells as I just didn’t really know how or

Sadborow – Spring League 8 – 14th July 2019

For the penultimate league match we were at Sadborow and I was really looking forward to it as you’re normally guaranteed plenty of bites and the banter is always top notch. Lying fourth in the league, just a point behind Exeter Mike, I wanted to do well and spent a fair bit of time doing some prep on Saturday, tying rigs and

River Parrett – Langport vs Stoke – 7th July 2019

I’m really enjoying these inter-club matches as you get to fish some different venues, see some faces I haven’t seen for years and the crack is always good. I have fished the Parrett near Oath before, back in the Langport League days and Ilminster used to have some matches on the stretch at Wick which is a little further up. It’s a

Todber Manor – 6th July 2019

Another double header this weekend, starting with only my second ever visit to the Whitepost lakes at Todber Manor, I believe these were the original lakes and the one and only time I’d ever fished them was one of the Tackleuk shop matches many years ago. I drew a flier (nothing new there then) on the top lake, one of the pegs

Spotlight On….. Bait-Tech Max Feeder and Karma

For the first part of my new series, I thought I’d have a look at the Max Feeder and Karma groundbaits which I’ve started using this year as my edge/margin mix. Max Feeder is new for 2019 and Bait-Tech say it’s quite possibly the best feeder groundbait they have ever developed! It’s a gorgeous olive colour and has elements of Special G

Perry St Pond – Spring League 7 – 30th June 2019

As we reach the business end of the league, the only thing separating the Tart and Bushy at the top of the table is weight as they stand toe to toe trading blows like a couple of duelling piscators! Who would be the first to concede ground? Perry High was the destination for our section today and I was hoping to avoid

MD Floats Review

After recently reviewing the Selfie Fish, Paul from Peejay Tackle has also now added MD Floats to the website, MD Floats is the brain child of keen match angler Mark Davis, so he knows what works! There are four popular patterns available on the website and I’ve listed them below along with the descriptions, Open Water Chimps – This pattern is very

Lakeview – 23rd June 2019

I’ve been really enjoying revisiting some venues I haven’t fished for a long time and also going to some new ones so when the Tart invited me to a match at Lakeview near Crediton, I said I’d be up for it, especially when he told me you’d need 150lb to win with loads of carp averaging 2-3lb apiece. Now regular readers of

Perry St Pond – Spring League 6 – 16th June 2019

For round six our destination was Perry Low and most of us met at Millfield cafe for another fantastic breakfast before heading out the pond to do the draw. Once again it looked like the British Summer was on hold as while we were unloading the cars, it chucked it down! Smithy took shelter in the back of his van but more

Spotlight On….. Bait

Bait is obviously an essential part of what we do and if you walk into any tackle shop you will be confronted by a wall of colourful packaging with a multitude of different aromas from the heavenly and gorgeous to the downright disgusting! It’s a massive industry with new firms seemingly popping up all the time and with each new groundbait and
