Interesting week with tench and crucian carp being very prominent all species are catching however the shy crucians seem to be feeding up and shoaling sooner than other species, tench also being caught in very large numbers, both species catching on maggot, caster, worm and even pellet,

Carp are still feeding up and very prolific especially on pellet and paste , pellet waggler doing very well for carp this week,  pellet and paste doing the business, all lakes carp pefering conker (paste wraped around pellet) they are feeding very hard so keep the feed pellets going in to keep fish in your swim.
