Much of my stillwater fishing in recent years has evolved around one technique, introducing groundbait and lots of it, known as the baiting pyramid. The idea is to try and attract a wide range of species to dine in the swim, create competitive feeding and hopefully tricking the fish into making a mistake. This method has worked extremely well on many venues and has accounted for large bags of specimen bream, carp, tench and crucians.
Video featuring Alan Stagg talking about the way he uses various items of the Enterprise Tackle Nightlite Adaptors to make his chub and barbel fishing more successful by improving the visibility of his rod/quiver tips when night fishing. This shows you in detail how to set these up and fish with them.

Perch are a species that are often synonymous with cold winters, yet autumn and the early winter months of September, October and November are a great time to target perch. Often they can be fairly plump at this time of the year as they prepare for the onset of winter and will often feed heavily before the water temperatures begin to drop. Big perch are an easily accessible fish and well within the grasp of most anglers. Here are a few tips on how to catch that fish of a lifetime.
Crucians are one of my favourite species to target during the spring. For me their golden scales glistening in the sun, are hard to beat. Crucians have traditionally been known as a tentative feeder, and sensitive float fishing tactics at dawn and dusk have been the accepted textbook way to target this specie.
