A trip to Abbey.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Alan Stagg

Two weeks before Christmas I was invited to fish Abbey Lakes alongside fellow Gardner Tackle employee Lewis Read and Gardner sponsored angler Calum Kletta.  I was really looking forward to the trip and being an angler that tends to target most things apart from carp, the session would be somewhat of a novelty.

7lb chub for Alan Stagg.

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Alan Stagg

Faced with mild conditions and low water levels I had an urge to try and track down a large chub.  I headed off to my local River Loddon and after walking the river settled into a swim I knew well and I quickly got sorted before darkness fell.

Still Water Bream On New Imitation Corn

Written by Top Imitator on . Posted in Alan Stagg

With the close season is well and truly upon us and it was now time to start thinking about a spring still water campaign. I have spent the last four springs targeting big bream on a low stock Berkshire pit.  The water contains around a dozen fish which can mean things can be a little slow at times.  

Monster 7lb 10oz chub

With the end of the season looming and a lovely mild spell of weather I just had to have a concentrated effort on my local River Loddon in search of monster chub.  Tactfully I had saved some holiday especially for the occasion and I hoped that this would pay off in spectacular style.

alan stagg january perch

The weather at the start and middle of January has been exceptionally mild  and when we look back to this time last year it couldn’t have been anymore different.  This month has again seen me targeting different species and I started by trying to bag a few carp from a local water fishing short evening sessions after work.  When the weather begins to chill the fish tend to gather in the middle of the pond.

alan stagg 7lb+ chub

What a month December has been and compared with last year the weather couldn’t have been anymore different.  The mild weather and lack of frosts has meant the fish have stayed active and feeding.  Luckily I have managed a bit of time on the bank this month, but not as much as I would have liked.  I have tried to keep things varied like normal and in December I have spent most of my time chasing big chub and perch.

After catching a big perch last month I was a little lost on what to target next.  I had planned to visit the venue most of the winter and with the long drive back and forth I was expecting a long haul.  It was great to get this fish off the ‘hit list’ and there would be no more perch fishing this winter that was for sure!  I had a week to ten days with no fishing as I tried to formulate a plan and over this time I visited a number of venues in search of some inspiration.
