    although I have been a follower of many posts on the forums this is the first time i've startde one!

    I've got a match at clattercote in a couple of weeks and would like a few pointers.

    Also , when I rang the bailiff he told me nearby Boddington Reservoir was shut at the moment. Anyone Know why?

    hi Ken

    Boddington is closed at the moment because they are building concrete platforms whilst the water is low
    these platforms are to make the fishing safer because if you have ever been there and fished off the rocks you would now why

    As for clattercote .if you are on either side up to half way up then its bagging waggler with the lightest and cloudyist groundbait that youve got using Ringers white boilley or pellet hairigged

    method feeder with dead red then white boilley works too

    hope this helps

    steves right about need the agility of a mountain goat to fish alot of the pegs there!!!
    it made me wonder about what happens if some one slips/trips on them rocks and breaks a leg etc.... who`s liable???

    Ken, at Clattercote you need to target the carp to win, on the top with bagging waggler if it's warm enough for them to surface feed, or on the bottom with method feeder otherwise.

    The tench are another option at certain times, but you need to ask a few questions of the regulars when you get there and find out what's been best just lately.

    Uaual baits are pellet, boilie, corn, or maggot.

    thanks for all the tips, it really helped me to blank!!!!!!! on a serious note it was a very nice venue to fish, especially as rodpod won the match with 56lb of carp and bream, (his box/oilrig weighs a lot more than that!!!!!)

    I'm good company, Nigel said so.
