Current England Interantional Des Shipp is regarded by many as one of the finest pole anglers this country has ever produced. This is even more true when we're talking about catching silver fish, so join him and Alex Bones at the viaduct fishery where these two top anglers give a masterclass in pole fishing. To make the day even more interesting, Alex fishes the modern way of feeding pellets and uses an expander pellet on the hook while Des adopts a more traditional groundbait, worm and caster approach. See how the different baits produce different bags of fish and, as usual, there's plenty of instruction, hints and tips to help you become a better pole angler.
The pole is now the dominant method on many commercial venues across the country and in this highly informative and action-acked show, the first in the series, Alex Bones is joined by top match angler Grant Albutt on the house Pool at the awesome Tunnel Barn complex to show you how to master shallow fishing tactics - If there's one pole fishing method that will produce fish after fish, this is it! To put an extra salnt on the day, Alex fishes the pellet while Grant, arguably the best angler in the country at this style of fishing, uses the lesser known slop method. For plenty of action, tips and information, join the duo as they fill their nets with F1s and Carp.
