I've been to Carpvale for the rover today. Last couple of rounds of the spring series I've been on match lake so I wanted a day on cyprio regardless of what peg! Middle of the queue to pick and surprisingly all the pegs I fancied still available so settled for flier peg 12.

Been a big temperature drop last couple of days and it's definitely had an effect on the fishing. First half of match was very slow, nicked one short first 15mins, had a few on the bomb, feeding 8.5mm Tutti Feed Pellets with a Tutti Boosted Pellet hookbait. Also had one on the method up to the island.
Couldn't get a sign at 16m in open water on two lines, but I kept pinging a few 6mm pellets covered in tutti oil on 1 of my lines and eventually started to get some signs. 
Had 2 on the deck before it went iffy so decided to go shallow over the top and had 4 on the bounce. No more signs shallow so back on the deck for a couple more. Last half hour I've had 3 more short, lost one as they called time and thought it might be costly. 
Ended up weighing 63lb which has been just enough to win with 57lb coming 2nd! Used the 12-14 slick for shallow and on the deck, bang on at the moment while they've not fully woke up . Nice to get a few shallow today, summer is on its way. Stayed on after match and it's been one a bung shallow!

Hinders Elips Pellets
Steve Beale (Milton Keynes)
Hinders pellets great for Barbel and Chub.

I’ve used hinders off and on over the past 12 years with fantastic results.
I find them especially effective early season and again when the rivers are low .
Combined with a small PVA bag

C Food 5kg Bait Bundle
ALAN BOND (Harlesden)
Hinders C food bait bundle

Have always held Hinders particles and bait in high regard . The C food is quality and I am sure it will catch . I’m fishing a very difficult water at present with very little coming out at all but I have confidence in the C food and that it will catch before too long . I also enjoy watching Chris (Carp King ) in his very good humoured fishing adventures and to coin a phrase “if it’s good enough for him.” Very impressed with the quality of the bait . Thankyou Mr Jarrett and team .

Great stuff.

After blanking a few times on the trusty luncheon meat, I needed a change. 1st night using, couple of chub and a just shy of 9lb barble.

Beta'nana boilies have a superb aroma are of a soft consistancy and to date have been very effective, another quality bait from Hinders, combined with quick delivery, first class service.

Hinders Mini Combo

Great service

Original order dispatched next day but Hermes had some kind of 'major issue' which meant it still hasn't arrived but a contact to Hinders got a replacement order sent out straight away which arrived by TNT next day no problem. We'll done Hinders, not your issue but you resolved it! Thanks!
