Exclusive A Dream Come True
Rocky barge – I knew the spots.
ent particle element. The water out in
front of the Rocky goes down to over
17-18ft in places and given the powerful undertows you can get in Wraysbury I wanted something that was
heavy to ensure my bait application

large clear area like this my preference is to either fish one or two rods
on the bait and one just off the bait.
This is something I’ve done many

Rosie – I had one bite off that spot
that session and it was her and the
rod that went was the one off the side
of the baited area. For this tactic to
work well in my opinion accurate

may have even said I’m going to nail
one of the Redmires. Sometimes you
get that feeling of confidence, where
you somehow just know – is it just
coincidence? Is it because at times
we are just in tune with things giving
