Irish fishing guide Ian Kitson takes us on a tour of some of the superb coarse fishing venues in Country Leitrim, Ireland in this guide to catching more on your fishing trips to the Emerald Isle. Firstly Ian sets up on the bank of the 1000-acre Lough Garradice and shows how to bait up for bream. He runs through his (generous) pre-bait strategy, stressing the importance of putting the time in on the bank, and away from the bar, to ensure superb catches of bream and hybrids. Ian runs through the tackle you need for a feeder session on deep water venues like this, including some tips on spotting bites in windy, choppy conditions, and how to use a groundbait catapult, as he catches one Garradice bream after another. Next we find Ian at Barney's Shore on Lough Allen, where he shows how to fish a fixed waggler, feeding groundbait and casters, to put together a cracking bag of silver fish. The third venue in Part One is St John's River, where Ian's fishing a whip with a flick tip to hand for roach and hybrids, feeding a ball a chuck and enjoying superb running water fishing. Finally in an action-packed programme he switches to a fourth method, fishing rod and line and a Bolognese float - a deadly method when fish move downstream of your feed.
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.
