Back In The Golden Rod Final!
It fished really hard on my side of Speci Lake as it’s not seen much bait since the floods, but I won the 20-angler zone with 20lb 12oz of bream and skimmers on the feeder. After two hours I was probably last on the lake, but my positive tactics paid off as I netted some nice big bream and the peg got stronger and stronger.
I won’t go into too much detail as the two-day Final is only next weekend, but tackle wise I used my favourite Horizon XS Slim 3.3m rods, Horizon X 3000 reels loaded with 8lb Horizon mono and swapped between the new 20g Matrix Standard Cage Feeders and an Open Alloy Method Feeder. I also used a bag of fishery micros glugged in the new Dynamite F1 Sweet Sticky Pellet Syrup and green Milled Expander.
Chuffed to get in the Final two years on the trot. Hopefully I can get a bit nearer to that £10,000 winner’s cheque this time!
