  1. Rushmore League at Gold Valley Lake 06/01/2019 - Callum Dicks

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F99AyrGYXY8 "Well we're here today at Gold Valley. It's the first round of the Rushmore League, now the Rushmore leagues I really like fishing. There's a lot of money to be won and it's a team match as well, it's not only you trying to win a lot of money for the individual price but there's also a team prize...
  2. Number One Pole Choice For F1 Fishing With Callum Dicks

    Right guys, this is my setup. First of all, the pole i'm using is the Maver Signature Pro 800. Now this pole fufils my requirements perfectly. The best  best thing about it for me is how stiff it is, you can fish it at lengths of 14-16m and when you're getting little tiny bites from these F1s, it's really responsive...
  3. How To Shot A Pole Rig Correctly With Callum Dicks

    My shotting pattern in the last month has actually changed totally to what I used to do. I know these floats that I'm using today take eight no. 12 shot, and what I used to do is just string them out over a four inch gap in a very basic 'shirt button style', but I've actually changed totally what I'm doing now...
  4. Shotting Pole Rigs Correctly by Callum Dicks

    My top tip for this week is shotting rigs correctly. When approaching most modern day commericals, one of the biggest questions I have to ask myself is which bait is going to be best; maggots or pellets. But it's not quite as simple as that, you have to shot your rig correctly depending on what bait is going to be...
  5. Bristol Docks Evening Series

    Thursdays match saw the water levels down by about a foot on normal and with the coloured water currently in the docks, nobody was quite sure how it was going to fish. This was the first match of the year at Baltic Wharfe, in the past the fishing always starts the year slowly as its the most exposed part of...
  6. Bristol Docks Evening Series

    Winter seems well and truly behind us now and spring is here, saw my first swallow of the year yesterday and a family of mallard ducklings, and the fishing has got a lot better, even the recent easterlies didn't put the fish off. Thursdays night match was fished at Redcliffe Wharf, the water was nicely coloured, good conditions for the...
  7. Bristol Docks Evening Match

    This weeks match was fished at Redcliffe Wharf, the pegs are to the left of the 'Ostrich', fishing into the main dock and the fishing was the best it has been for a very long time. The weather was very windy and the water was coloured, perfect conditions for the skimmers and bream to feed. Top weight was Merv Sivell...
  8. Bait Tech Festival, Whiteacres

    The first festival of the year is always something to always look forward to, the long hard winter is behind us and with longer, warmer days and good fishing ahead it is the start of summer for me. My rotation saw me on Pollawyn for the first day and I drew peg 22, not a favoured draw in my opinion...
  9. Gold Valley Midweek Open

    This was my first trip back to Gold after a two week break and how things have changed in that time, the first thing I noticed was how much more colour there was in the water and there was a lot more surface activity. For me March is a month of change, at the start you are fishing in winter...
  10. Sensas Challenge Final, River Soar Loughborough

    I always look forward to this weekend, its 4 days away with my Dorking team mates, we always have a good laugh, even if the fishing is not very good. This years practice days were a struggle, the first practice day on Thursday we fished on 'the greens' and I had a couple of pounds of roach on bloodworm and...
