St Neots specialist Paul Elt contacted us to tell us about some interesting Crucian Carp fishing he’d discovered at one of his local farm ponds.
He discovered a little known, but well established old farm irrigation pool had started allowing anglers; and decided on a recce trip to see what the venue contained. His enterprise was rewarded when early trips produced a string of handsome 2lb Crucian Carp to 2lb 7oz.
Paul found Kamasan Black Cap maggot feeder tactics with mini helicopter rigs on 4lb Supplex to be the best tactic, incorporating a size 14 Specimen Plus hook on a very short 3lb hooklink baited with double maggot. He’s aiming to go back in the Spring and target them with the float.
