** Etang Cache Cup Report ** Neil Golden reports back from the Etang Cache Cup - "We managed to get our first choice of peg so confidence was high from the very beginning. Our peg had a heavy snagged area to the right which is known to hold fish. However, most importantly, it also has a big channel in the Middle which the fish use to patrol up and down the lake. Our plan was to try and cut the channel off to stop the fish moving out of our area and on to the other competitors. The match was 48 hours so we felt there was enough fish in the area to win the match or at least put up a solid challenge if we could keep them there. Without going in to the technical side any further our tactics worked flawlessly and we absolutely hauled. We had three 40s including a 47lb 8oz common and the rest of the weight was made up by stunning 30lbers." "The other teams round the lake struggled to get on the fish while we managed to keep them in front of us for the entire duration of the comp. We used a mixture of the Key Cray and Scopex Squid boilies sprinkled with the Nash Cray Fish meal and the fish just went wild. When the buzzer finally sounded we discovered that third place was last years winners from France with only 28lbs. Second place was a Dutch team with just over 48lb and we finished on a total of 402lb in 48 hours. After loosing the lead at last knockings to the French last year and to win by such a margin this time made revenge sweeter than a pineapple popup."

RidgeMonkey's Tec Mainlines are coming soon!!

Here's RM's following press release:

From Advanced Carp Fishing Magazine
2017-05-05 20:00:31
RidgeMonkey's Tec Mainlines are coming soon!! Here's RM's following press release: "Following much speculation, teasing and downright tomfoolery, we're pleased to announce that the first two RM-Tec products are ready for release. Developed in conjunction with Carp Talk/Mainline Carp Angler of the Year Dave Levy and former distance casting World Record holder Terry Edmonds, the RM-Tec lines have been put through their paces by our expansive testing team across Europe – from 1 acre ponds to 10,000 acres+ inland seas and big snaggy rivers, they have been a keystone in landing fish to over 70lb from multiple countries. Conservatively rated, the RM-Tec lines will break well above the stated breaking strains when used with a well-tied knot and have performed without fault throughout the final testing stage. RM-Tec Mono Sinking monofilament mainline with excellent casting qualities and low stretch, supplied on massive 1200 metre spools. RM-Tec Mono mainline is the perfect all-rounder for almost any fishing situation, from an underarm lob in the edge to extreme distances on an inland sea. A great low maintenance fishing line with high abrasion resistance and low memory. 1200m spool available in clear, brown and green in 0.35mm (12lb/5.4kg), 0.38mm (15lb/6.8kg) and 0.42mm (18lb/8.2kg) breaking strain. RRP: Β£18.99 RM-Tec Fluoro Sinking fluorocarbon coated mainline with superior casting qualities and very low stretch, ideal for fishing heavily pressured waters with spooky fish that have seen it all – the high density allows the line to hug the bottom contours, remaining undetected by the target species while still retaining the casting qualities of a standard monofilament: the perfect Middle ground between weight and castability. High abrasion resistance and low memory. 1000m spool available in 0.33mm (15lb/6.8kg) and 0.37mm (20lb/9.1kg) breaking strain RRP: Β£24.99 We hope to have the new RM-Tec mainlines in retailers nationwide next month, with a full RM-Tec range of end tackle to follow shortly afterwards: keep an eye on www.ridgemonkey.co.uk and our social media channels for further updates!!"

Well done to Kevin Clarke and Steven Sherwood on qualifying through to the BCAC semi final. In Kevins words.... "This weekend I was using the nut 365 on willow park in a British Carp Angling Championships qualifier . After coming out 8th in the draw and not getting the best of swims it was time to start fishing. My fishing partner Steve had a couple of fish Friday evening seeing us in first place for the first half of the match. Saturday the fish had moved off to the Middle of the lake so we started moving down the order. Sunday morning come around and the fish had moved to my baited spots and was on the nut 365. We finished in second place and going on to the semifinals." Top result boys!

After finishing my session last session I got a home call off my friend asking if I wanted to go the res for the afternoon. It's a 60 acre reservoir in the Middle of mansfield. We went for 3 hours and managed to bag 5 fish between us, me having 3 and my friend 2. All my bites fell to Multi-rigs fished with a washed out Nut 365 Pop-ups. All fish were caught only a rod length and a half from the bank proving locatio is always key. Lewis

****** BREAKING NEWS **** CATCH REPORT **** BREAKING NEWS ****** Our very own Chris Robson has been out on the bank and in competitive mood, here is his report about how he got on. Hi, all. Back on the bank at Forest Lane for a midweek open this week. Fishing on Oaklands Lake. The lake had been fishing well through the later part of the summer, with 100lb needed to frame in most matches. However, a couple of days of torrential rains and a change to cooler wind things could well be changing. So it was going to be a case of not placing all my eggs in one basket. I drew peg 8, Middle of the lake and somewhere I fancied for a chance of a few fish. Plenty of water and more than enough options to keep me interested. I have been guilty in recent matches of trying to do too much, ending up splitting up my fish and not doing the pegs justice. So today I decided to stick to just two lines. One at sixteen metre's, which was to be my softly, softly catch anything line. Then a shorter line at six metre's at the base of the near slope. I planned to feed this spot heavier in the hope of some bonus fish. Baits for the day were plenty of maggots (boosted with a liberal coating of the ever reliable #Jungle overspray) and the new #Pallatrax groundbait pellets. At the all in, I fed three large pots of the pellets on the 6m line. Along with around half a pint of the boosted maggots. The idea being to leave this line to settle, building up the fishes confidence and hopefully give me a run of fish later in the match. I started the session on the long line, feeding regularly, and feeling my way into the game. Letting the fish tell me what they wanted, by trickling in a dozen or so maggots and the same of the 4mm groundbait pellets It took me 15 minutes to get a bite, a small Carp of around a pound. Keeping the bait trickling in through a small pot mounted on the pole was key It's so important to keep busy on a tricky day. Lifting and dropping the rig, almost teasing the fish into biting was the trick on this occasion. The match went pretty much to plan. Other than pulling out of a couple of good fish on a snag. I spent the first 3 hours putting a real mixed bag of smaller fish together. The variety of species is brilliant in this lake. Barbel, Goldfish, Roach, Rudd, Tench, Golden Tench, Perch, Golden Orfe, Crucians and every type of carp imaginable. Brilliant fishing. The last 2 hours I sat on the shorter line. It was slower going, but using a bunch of maggots (4/5) and on the heavier terminal tackle I was hoping for some bonus fish so it was a gamble. Thankfully on this occasion, it paid off. Four superb Barbel to about 5lb and several Carp of a similar stamp boosted my final weight. Rigs for the day consisted of 0.13 Gamma on the long line, to a size 16 hook. With a strung out shotting pattern to give more natural fall of the bait, also helping to catch the fish when gently lifting and dropping the rig back. I stepped up to 0.15 Gamma and size 14 hook for the short bonus fish line. With a bulk shot around 6" from the hook. To nail the bait down. The elastic choice was a doubled up 6 for the small fish and a double 8 for the big fish. I weighed in 86lb 12oz. With second place being 30lb, proving that making the right decisions and using top quality bait is critical. A fabulous and busy days fishing. Watching the conditions before the session, and using a flexible approach proved key to the result. With most people coming and expecting to be fishing for big summer weights, their tactics just weren't right on the day. Tight lines, Chris

Lifting and dropping the rig, almost teasing the fish into biting was the trick on this occasion. The match went pretty much to plan. Other than pulling out of a couple of good fish on a snag. I spent the first 3 hours putting a real mixed bag of smaller fish together. The variety of species is brilliant in this lake. Barbel, Goldfish, Roach, Rudd, Tench, Golden Tench, Perch, Golden Orfe, Crucians and every type of carp imaginable. Brilliant fishing. The last 2 hours I sat on the shorter line. It was slower going, but using a bunch of maggots (4/5) and on the heavier terminal tackle I was hoping for some bonus fish so it was a gamble. Thankfully on this occasion, it paid off. Four superb Barbel to about 5lb and several Carp of a similar stamp boosted my final weight. Rigs for the day consisted of 0.13 Gamma on the long line, to a size 16 hook. With a strung out shotting pattern to give more natural fall of the bait, also helping to catch the fish when gently lifting and dropping the rig back. I stepped up to 0.15 Gamma and size 14 hook for the short bonus fish line. With a bulk shot around 6" from the hook. To nail the bait down. The elastic choice was a doubled up 6 for the small fish and a double 8 for the big fish. I weighed in 86lb 12oz. With second place being 30lb, proving that making the right decisions and using top quality bait is critical. A fabulous and busy days fishing. Watching the conditions before the session, and using a flexible approach proved key to the result. With most people coming and expecting to be fishing for big summer weights, their tactics just weren't right on the day. Tight lines, Chris

**CATCH REPORT***CATCH REPORT***CATCH REPORT*** This catch report has just come in: "I have found some local pits, so I went for a walk around and saw a couple of carp straight away in the upper layers of the water. Proper old black characters living in a little lake with a submerged caravan in the Middle (you really couldn't make it up!) First I tried naturals like maggots and worms, and had a few knocks, but no takes then I tried the supermarket approach of sweetcorn, chickpeas and meat, Again, nothing. The next trip to my syndicate (Commonwood fisheries) I picked up two extra bags of Pallatrax Jungle and Multiworm, took them to the local pits and tried the same spots where I had seen the fish and boom! away goes the alarm. It certainly didn't take long at all. I lost that one through the caravan window, and I am sure not a lot of people can say that! It still makes me smile now to think of it. My next visits were more successful. I just love the pillow shape of the Squab and so do the Carp. Thanks again, Pallatrax, cracked another lake." It certainly seems that you have, Phil. We love to hear the success stories from our fellow anglers and this has to be amongst the strangest for a while. Do keep them coming! #Catchmorefish #Jungle #Multiworm #Gripz shop.pallatrax.co.uk

*** Catch Report*** Catch Report *** FELLOW angler Jamie Brett has been in touch to let us know about his Middle Severn Barbel and at 10lb 5 oz it's certainly a good specimen for that section of the river and have to say that it looks every bit that and some. Jamie put Meat Beast Paste too work and the frankfurter, pork, crab and black pepper did the trick. Well done Jamie from us all at Pallatrax we always look forward to success so please do let us know how you get on. Rich #MeatBeast #Severnfish #Princeoftheriver

Can you guess the fresh-faced angler posing for this weeks Throwback Thursday? At 13 years old it wasn't easy to swallow a two-night blank so his dad took him for a bonus night to Oliver's Lake in the hope of catching a fish before heading home. Finally the alarm screamed off in the Middle of the night and the smile says it all as he proudly poses with his first ever double-figure carp, weighing in at a PB smashing 17lb 10oz!

***CATCH REPORT**CATCH REPORT**CATCH REPORT*** Xenon Hampel took the his partner Sinaed Molyneux for a 48hour session Newbridge Lake, here's what he had to say: As I had a spare couple of days I headed to one of my local waters, Newbridge Lakes with my partner Sinaed. Upon arriving and speaking to the owner Michelle, I found out that a carp hadn't been out the lake for the previous 2 days. I set up my rods all on Zigs. With high air pressure and the sun blazing the first 24 hours passed with no joy so I decided a quick chop and change was in order. I spent some time teaching Sinaed how to tie the zigs and load the foam as she hasnt fished zigs before. I also changed my size 8 Pallatrax gripz to a size 10 (using the gripz as its a barbless only water) combined with medium inline stonze. About two hours later my Middle rod shot of and after a 15 minute battle through the lily pads the fish was in the net. A beautiful 25lb Northern Common was the reward. I had a further three takes on the session but unfortunately lost them due to the lilies. All in all it was a good first introduction session for Sinaed - she was happy with the Common as you can see below!
