Staggy’s Big Bream Bonanza.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Alan Stagg, Articles

In recent years I’ve had a burning desire to better my PB bream of 16lb 7oz. I always set aside some time each year, with the hope of achieving this. Well this season was no different and I had been putting in a lot of ground work through the colder months in the hope that it would pay dividends.

Spring Crucians and Tench by Alan Stagg.

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.

Ant Ballard. New Improved Imitation Dog Biscuit.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Antony Ballard, Articles

The all new and improved Imitation Dog Biscuit is considerably smaller compared to its previous counterpart. Making this new version a much closer match in size to actual chum mixers. The Imitation Dog Biscuit sits nice and low in the water just like a real waterlogged mixer; and these two factors combined make it significantly harder for the carp to pick out and potential reject the your hook bait.
They incorporate a foam insert and split shot combination, which when used in conjunction with the recommended hook sizes, provides perfect counterbalance every time. Ensuring the hook always sits proud above the waterline. Completely out of view of those wary and suspecting carp.
This, and the additional feature of tapered sides, drastically increases their stability. So these are great even on choppy water.

Adam Johnson Quick Night Success.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Articles, Junior Angle

With the nights becoming lighter and the temperatures raising my quick overnighters are becoming shorter and shorter as I can now get on the bank for 11pm and be off for 5-6 am. With the luxury of the warm dry nights only a bed chair, small tackle bag and bundle of rods nets and bank sticks are needed making moving round in the night easy and allowing you to fish efficiently.

Adam Johnson A Monday Night Session.

Monday night, my first time on the bank for a few weeks due to being so busy at the fishery lately, don’t get me wrong I have tried to fish but I keep getting jobs to do around the site. I turned up at four seasons at around 3:00 pm, bombed in to the office and had a chat with the boss before loading my barrow and going round for a look.

How to up your PB Perch by Alan Stagg.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Alan Stagg, Articles

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.

Fish…At Last!

When I left you last time I had just enjoyed my first session of the new river season, albeit the result was a blank in terrific company on an occasion when, for once, the social was more important than the actual result.

How To Up Your PB Crucian.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Alan Stagg, Articles

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.
