In this week's issue
It has been a fantastic week on the big-fish front, with no fewer than seven fifties caught, topped by the Gurm at 55¼lb from Fryerning. We’ve also got two Welly fifties for one angler, and lumps from Elphicks, Church Lake and the Avenue. We also take a look back at a fantastic weekend at the Carpin’ On Show at Five Lakes.
Ian Chillcott explains why a spread of boilies is his number one tactic. Tim Childs finds he’s right not to let a poor weather forecast put him off fishing. The CC Moore team brings us a combo that’s ideal for early spring, and Paul Codman reflects on what might have been a lengthy struggle on Burghfield, but was actually very rewarding. Ben Leuty has a good result as the carp wake up in Cambridgeshire, and products from Trakker, Kodex, British Aqua Feeds, Rig Marole and Bait-Tech go under the spotlight. We’ve also got a Trakker Levelite Oval Bed System and Oval Bed Cover up for grabs.
