Latest Video: Short-Pole & Maggots

In our latest video, Jon Arthur demonstrates how to make the most of a couple of pints of maggots and a simple short-pole approach.


jon-arthur-hillview-lakesAfter an action-packed session at the fabulous Hillview Lakes, the reward was a tidy mixed catch including roach, perch, skimmers, bream, F1s and carp. It’s a simple and very effective way to fish, so watch the film and see if you can mimic Jon’s expert advice. We also shot some Bite-Size Tips from the same session, which should appear in our Videos section very soon.

If you are ever in Gloucestershire, we recommend you give Hillview Lakes a visit. It consists of two large lakes and four snake lakes spread over eight acres. It’s a really pleasant and well-kept fishery that still fishes really well throughout the autumn and winter. There are even a number of Scandinavian-style log cabins on site if you want to make a holiday of it. Visit to learn more.
