Mistral Baits - New Ranges for 2013
Looking to try something new this year? Looking for a quality bait at a reasonable price? From �6.59 a kilo. Mistral have launched new ranges this year including the following ranges: Kriller, Tutti Fruitti, Purple Plum, Coconut Krill.
Gardner Hook Aligners
The brand new Covert Pop up Hook Aligners have been developed as an extremely easy was of creating ultra effective 'D' style rigs by combining a preformed D with one of our superb Hook Aligners. The result of combining the two key elements of mounting hookbaits in this manner and the very aggressive turning action that the Hook Aligner kicker creates means rigs using these components will be react faster and hook more carp. The unique Pop Up Hook Aligners can be used with almost any hooklink material as well! This means that you can now use D rigs with either coated or uncoated braids or even light monofilaments.

Andy's Fishing Diary
It's been an interesting couple of weeks since I last wrote a diary piece. I think all of the talk about new tackle and buying bits and bats has taken its toll on me and the carp fishing bug has bitten me big time. I don't think it could have chosen a worse time of the year but I'm well and truly in carp mode. I have recently spooled up my new reels with 15lb Subline from Korda in preparation for my trip to Etang Marolles in France in early April and to be honest this was the last straw, I had to get out on the bank!
Last Sunday saw me heading up the motorway from Bolton to Blackpool to fish a favourite tuition venue of mine, the brilliant Four Seasons fishery which is located in the village of Staining on the outskirts of the illuminated northern town. The complex has three lakes, a match lake and two carp waters. I had hoped to fish Mill which is a well stocked carp water where the fish average around the 16lb mark although there are several fish in there that break the 20lb barrier, however when I arrived at the popular fishery I found that Mill was reasonably busy and so I took the chance of fishing Lodge which is the specimen water which contains fewer but much larger carp than Mill.
I was one of three anglers on the water and I felt that I had a chance of a take. The two night session passed quickly with only the odd line bite for my efforts. During the session a few fish did pop their heads out of the water and although I had my traps set in the area where they were showing none wanted to grace my unhooking mat. As I packed up a chap who I now know as Pete walked around and asked me what I had seen as he was about to come on the lake for a night, I told him about the showing fish and then left him to it.
The next morning I was looking through my Facebook newsfeed, from the comfort of my kitchen at home, only to see Pete holding a new lake record, a fish named Big Lin at just a shade over 32lbs! I've got to say that I was a little envious and in all honesty I had felt close to getting a take throughout my sessions. To really rub the regular anglers at Four Seasons noses in it, it was Pete's first visit to the fishery! Now I've stopped being jealous of his capture I'd like to offer my hearty congratulations to Pete on a great piece of angling!
All of this feeling close to a capture but not getting one left me eager to get back out on the bank, my opportunity to do this has been limited and with a terrible snowy forecast I made tentative plans with a friend of mine to fish a well stocked local water which holds a good head of double figure carp with one or two surprises.
Monday morning came around and with it came the snow. The lakes at Bradshaw Hall hadn't frozen and so we went for it. Setting up in a blizzard isn't a new experience for me but Monday was particularly severe. I fished Mainline Cell 15mm bottom baits with tiny pva bags of crushed boilie; I started by positioning the baits in likely areas and then watched the water for signs of carpy activity.
During the morning I noticed a few pin prick sized bubbles breaking the surface and quickly recast my freshly baited rig towards the activity, within fifteen minutes my alarm was sounding a fast take on my left hand rod. The culprit was the fish in the photograph above a lovely low double figure snow carp! I managed another slightly smaller fish before the end of the day which turned out to be fantastic social session with friends Simon and Ian who dropped in for a cup of tea or ten!
These two sessions have proven to me that it really is worth getting out on the bank even when the weather forecast is telling me not to, maybe it's something worth bearing in mind in your own fishing?
Dan has asked me to mention to you that he has had a new delivery of Korda terminal tackle which he expects will sell quickly during the next few weeks. I have used the Korda Solidz pva bag system myself and found them to be really high quality and easy to use, there's also plenty of stuff like the Korda Dark Matter tubing or the Korda Krimp system which is brilliant when tying short chod rigs, Safe Zone leaders and Korda leads that are all worth a look.
There are some interesting bait bundles from Mainline and bait making ingredients from Nutrabaits which might well take your fancy.
Tight Lines, Andy

The Krimps and Krimp tool have been designed to allow easy rig construction with stiff materials. In particular, we're really excited about the potential to create extremely neat loops for chod rigs.

Top Tip from Sticky
Krill your boilies
Get a bucket and cover the bottom with a layer of boilies, tip some Pure Krill Liquid in and shake the bucket until the baits are coated. Now chuck in a bit of Pure Krill Powder and shake it again. The baits can take a surprising amount of this on even to the point of looking dry and fluffy on the outside. When the baits are placed in water they create an intense Krill explosion! Due to the buoyancy of the Krill meal this goodness rises and falls in the water column pulling any fish in the vicinity down to your spot..... Give it a try!!
Pure Liquid Krill - 1 Litre - �10.99. Krill Powder by Sticky - 750g - �9.99. Krill Powder by Marukyu - 400g - �6.99
