October Issue Out Now!

If ever there was proof that two hours in the right place is better than two days in the wrong one, Luke Vallory’s session on Junction 12 was it! While the scorching sun and barbecues were a nice way to enjoy the last of the summer, it meant difficult conditions on the fishing front. Luckily a great bit of opportunist angling paid off with a truly monumental carp!

We also visit Cheshire’s historic Redesmere, where Frank Warwick gives the lowdown on some of his biggest Eureka Moments. In fact, it was here that Frank developed the now commonplace tactic of single hook bait fishing, where he needed to get baits right out at range on the big silty mere, and it’s also where the modern chod rig originated from.

The theme of big pits and range fishing continues with a number of features, including Lee Randall’s top 10 tips, Myles Gibson long range fishing on Dinton and Elliott Gray’s trip to the Continent among others. It’s not all fishing to the horizon though, and we cover everything down to Ian Russell float fishing in the margins, plus loads in between!
