Lindholme Lakes today for the open on Bonsai and Beeches. Beeches has been the inform lake of late, thought you would need to draw on there to frame. drew 19 on my favourite lake bonsai, still happy enough as it's been good area for the new stockie f1s.

Started off short tapping in micros fishing a 4mm Polly Eazy Expander on the hook. Had a couple of better f1s and a few stockies before no more signs. Middle part of match I've just alternated a couple of lines at 13m, again feeding micros. It's been steady away with stokies and the odd skimmer. By this point peg 15 has been clattering stockies out, I was way behind and my lines were slowing rapidly.

Opened up new lines at 14m but it's been rubbish! Would wait ages for bites off tiny stockies or roach. Same thing has happened on a line at 16m to the spinner, just couldn't get another run of fish. Last hour gone down the left hand margin where I've loose fed maggots next to the rushes all match . At first could only catch roach! Started to feed a bit of Hinders Tutti Expander Groundbait and I've then started to get the odd better f1 mixed in with silvers. Annoyingly I've lost 4 f1s in sunken branches in open water, knew it would be costly.

Ended up with 60lb for 6th overall, just missing out on framing by 4lb. Peg 15 has won the match with 100lb, then beeches has made up the rest of the framing places. Disappointing result but plenty of bites though! Well done Scott Weston on framing, even with my duff info....

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.

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!
