Great venue little small and at times very busy as its a day ticket get pole anglers which take valuable pegs and also mouths of fish are slightly damaged as a result


Excellent. I recommend Whelford as a venue although I agree it does get a little busy, take some light tackle as there's plenty of large roach and perch that are excellent sport and in cracking condition.



Use luncheon meat as carp are wary of boilies and red maggots seem to catch everything thing else. Back to basics?
