2019 - Knock up at Heron and Grebe , Wolvey (Next to Makins ) 22nd Dec

MASsive Mark Millington invited a several of us to this fabulous lake complex at Wolvey for a days Winter Silvers bashing ........... it didn't let us down !
The complex consists of three lakes and we fished the middle one and recent results on this complex realised upto 40 lb of silvers ............excited or what !!
Well the previous two days had seen some really heavy rain with localised flooding on the rivers . These lakes took the extra water well yet we were unsure whether it would fish , well the first 30 minutes took care of that uncertainty as all anglers caught well and did for the rest of the match .

I drew peg 1 and fished whip at 6m in 7' water on a 1gr float with two pole rigs of 2.0gr and 1.0gr floats . I used a very fluffy mix of Sensas GG Fine , with blackened (TRACIX) bag of Surface . Also in the mix went 0.25 pt of dead pinkies . Hook bait was maggot and Pinkie.
