Phil Ringer explains just what the process and ingredients list looks like when developing a new groundbait mix. He has been responsible for some of the best and most popular mixes over the past20 years. Classics like Ringers Original and Dark have been huge for that entire time, no matter whether bream or carp are the target. But how does Phil go about developing a new mix? And what exactly goes into a groundbait to make it work? We joined him to take a look at the development behind the brand new Ringers Feeder mix… The Background I have never wanted to produce too many different groundbaits.

Kayleigh Smith blogs how she won the prestigious Ladies Fisho title… for the second time! This year saw the Fish ’O’ Mania final return to Hayfield Lakes, which left me with mixed feelings – on the one hand I was happy as it was closer to home so it would be easier to get down a few times for a practice, but on the other hand it has its challenges, including the big old fish that can go 20lb plus, meaning that no one is ever out of it. I had a couple of practice sessions/matches and managed 18 carp for 107lb in one and 16 carp for 96lb in the other, catching a few fish and getting my confidence up. I also learnt a few things along the way that came into play in the final. On the day I drew Peg 6, which was permanent Peg 71 and also an end peg, although I could only fish up to this side of the next platform.

Joe Carass gets on the bank with this stunning looking range of rods from Browning. I am a huge fan of Browning rods. Having used the Black Viper MK2 range extensively over the last 18 months, I have been drawn into seriously checking out all of the other rods in the range. The Silverlite rods were a range that definitely intrigued me.

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.
