RUNNING LEDGER FOR PERCH

This is my preferred way of fishing for Perch with bait, the rig is very simple and it offers low resistance to wary Perch.

THE SIMPLE MAGGOT FEEDER

The Elasticated X-safe insert is a great way to fish that helps eliminate hook pulls, and has great self hooking properties. The Feeder Bead is really useful when fixed rigs are banned and you need to quickly change hook links over in match situations.

how fishing saved my life pt.4

“Snow pike and frozen tackle” By mid December with winter upon us in all its dark and shivery glory I’d pushed my time at the pit as far as I possibly could, though still catching carp the numbers had dropped significantly and it was becoming increasingly hard to fulfil my catching needs.
