Anyone for curry!

John Cartwright fished the BHAA’s stretch of the River Ouse upstream of Harrold. He float-fished using curry flavoured maggots as bait which the fish found irresistible. He caught superbly-conditioned roach averaging around 3/4lb and perch to nearly 1lb at the rate of a fish per cast throughout the day until nightfall.

Robert Livock fished at McGregor Lake on three days during the week and caught carp on each occasion. On his first visit, he caught a 14lb 8oz common within a couple of hours of casting out. His second visit brought him three more carp, an 11lb 10oz mirror and two commons each around 9lbs. His final visit ended with another trio of fish, an 11lb mirror, a 4lb 8oz common and a 4lb mirror. Boiles fished hard on the bottom was the tactic used by him and he intends to get another trip in before Xmas Day too!
