Now you rascals all know that my knowledge of freshwater fishing is in its infancy so the information here is open to scorn and mockery by you more knowledgeable chaps. The tackle I am describing here is the tackle provided by Stuart Gillham but he is happy to allow competent anglers to bring their own. However, it's important to read the website carefully as there is a wealth of information contained within it....especially about tackle. If you bring your own gear, then it has to be within the framework Stuart provides on the website. These are big, powerful fish and the highest priority is given over to their care. Knowing that a big fish has just run off and smashed inappropriate tackle to pieces and is now dragging it around is not what is wanted. A great deal of respect is given to these fish and they way they are handled is a shining example as to how highly they are regarded.
Both these anglers were trying corn baits (shown above) and advised the very keen anglers out there amongst you to bring a few items with you....such as a baiting needle, plastic dumbells to keep the artificial sweet corn on the hairrig, the PVC bags and a nut drill (plus your catapult).
OK....at this point I will stop on the technical stuff. Those of you out there who do this sort of fishing will know what I'm going on about and will know how to fill in the gaps to what I am trying to say. Those of you who haven't got a clue...do't worry...you're just like me Jeff and Spike. Everything will be provided for you and you will be guided as you go along by top level, committed European guides. Believe me when I tell you that Stuart and his team have thought of everything and will have the answers to your questions before you even know what your question is.
Remember to read the website if you intend to bring your own tackle.....
