The last week has seen a few anglers sitting on the bank at Springside; weather has been up and down with both wind and rain affecting the angling.
Carp to 12lb have been showing on both carp style feeder methods as well as the traditional match style feeder. Both have worked in luring the carp into feeding when offering corn or meat or even a couple of dead red maggots.
Small boillies have also been used as a hook bait.
Plenty of roach and rudd showing on the pole, whip and waggler when using bread, maggot, pinkie and caster on the hook.
Match results from Townsend Lakes fishery.
