Top Tips: 

1). Mixing groundbait is the first job at your peg, allowing it plenty of time to take on water before the start of the match.

2). Good clothing is a must, once cold you cannot fish to your full potential.

3). When going to a new venue, speak to venue locals and try to gain as much information as possible.

4). In hot weather make sure you keep your bait fresh by using a bait brolly and a cool bag with ice packs.

5). When tying hooks and rigs, label them so you cannot forget what line or hook you have used.

FAVOURITE METHOD: 

Bloodworm fishing for silvers and Method Feeder for Carp and Bream
