Two Methods, One Great Result

Steve Clarke had a great recent session at Flaxlands Fishery, catching over 35 carp on bomb and pellet waggler tactics.


“I fished peg 27 on the big lake at Flaxlands and opted to fish the bomb,” he explained. ” I was armed with a Drennan Carp Bandits rig and decided to give one of Ruth’s Special 11mm pellets a go. A few hours and 20 carp later you might say they work very well. Casting under a far tree was key, while feeding 11mm carp pellets over the top.

“Having seen a few carp take the odd pellet just beneath the surface I decided to get the pellet waggler out, using a Drennan Shorty Pellet Waggler. Feeding 6mm pellets over the top kept the carp interested and after a few hours, just before the rain set in, I managed to bag another 15+ carp, resulting in well over 35 carp in just five hours which included this lovely linear.

“I also got to help out a few anglers which was great especially when I saw them go on to catch a fair few carp. Job done!”
