We look at two new additions to the AS Feeder range. Mini Bullet Feeder – RRP: £1. 92 The water is still cold and being able to use a small feeder at distance is a massive edge. For a long time anglers have had to use small, adapted and cut-down rocket feeders, but no longer as AS feeders has developed a Mini Bullet Feeder.

Side trays are an essential item of tackle for the comfort and organisation of your session. And as match anglers we are using larger and larger side trays, especially when wading on natural waters. One huge problem that anglers have been faced with is supporting the weight on these large side trays. Supporting legs are the common choice but there are situations when you cannot use them – deep margins or narrow commercial platforms being just two cases.

Match Fishing gets its hands on the brilliant new Octbox D25 MK18. The Octbox team really are the best at listening to what their customers want. The head of design, Rick Tyler, spends hours on the phone to his many customers and always looks for ways to incorporate what they are saying and to improve the highly popular seatbox range. The D25 MK18 is the perfect example of listening to customer feedback and making improvements.

Mark Downes tells you five of his groundbait secrets that have caught him loads of fish down the years. It’s Magic If you want a simple one-bag mix for commercial silvers then Sweet Fishmeal Magic is the mix for you. Magic is a perennial fish catcher and the addition of a fishmeal element only serves to enhance its reputation. I have used this mix no end for silver fish on commercials but have also used it extensively on canals too.

Match Fishing runs the rule over Browning’s latest elastic range – Xitan Microbore. Hollow elastics have quite rightly been the most popular choice for pole anglers for a long, long time now. What once seemed like a ridiculous idea became the norm and anglers everywhere have bought into the hollow elastic concept. And why wouldn’t they? They are long-lasting, durable, user-friendly and they work! Like all products, things evolve and new technologies and manufacturing processes crop up that can improve the performance of elastics.

Joe Carass tests a bait additive that has become a must-have in his opinion. Every now and again I receive a product that I just don’t really ‘feel’. Perhaps a product that just doesn’t get me excited or I can’t see a place for it in my fishing. I must admit when I saw the Dynamite Baits Swim Stim Pellet Soaks for the first time that was the feeling I got.

Joe Carass gets his hands on the brand-new Arco-Tech rods from Middy. As far as commercial feeder rods go, Middy takes some beating. Rods such as the 4GS and XK/XZ are firm favourites with thousands of anglers and are a common sight no matter what the venue. Middy has always had a knack of producing great rods for a great price; the 4GS in particular has been an unbelievable rod range.
