What tactics work well?
Summer fishing provides plenty of silver fish. Popular tactics include loose feeding maggots using the waggler or pole. Large baits usually pick out better quality fish.
When catching carp, stay close to your rod as many have been lost due to the fish making powerful runs. Bream can be taken on the feeder with either a small cage or a method feeder. Good-sized tench can be caught close in on bread, corn or meat.
Best baits for fishing on site include maggots, worm and small pellets.
