This morning I woke up to a savage take that I assumed was one of the gravel pits carp. After a long hard fight I managed to get the fish under the rod tip, and a few minutes of heavy lunges and not being able to get it up off the bottom I was convinced I was going to see a carp pop up on the surface only to see a enormous tench break the surface.

I quickly realised I had a very special fish on the end and a short while later I slid the net under it. I thought my chance of a double this spring was long gone so to get an 11lb 3oz fish as my first bite back from lockdown I was over the moon. I followed it up with a fish of 8lb 10oz too.

Both caught on a Beta'nana pop up trimmed down with a few maggots on top and a pva bag of Elips pellet.

I’ve bought Hinder C-Food the last few time I’ve been up to fish the Wye. Even when conditions and catch reports aren’t looking great, this stuff has produced results every single time. Can’t recommend enough!

C food paste and boilies

Worked very well all day together with Bags of hinders halibut pellet. The mix worked wonders over 2 days.


I've been using ramiz for about the last 3or 4 seasons and I caught really well on it but when my first order for this season came it was a horrible light brown colour it was so soft I had trouble at times keep it on the hook I'm not impressed and will not be using it again
