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.

I have just got back from Croatia, where I was privileged to be part of the four-man England team that took part in the World Masters Championship on a lake near Sveti Martin, in Croatia. We had four days of official practice on the venue and it was solid with small roach, bleak, carrassios and spiky catfish. We practised all sorts of methods, but it became clear that it was going to be fishing shallow at seven to eight metres, feeding balls of slop (three bags of Sensas surface to one bag of Gros Gardons) that contained joker, dead pinkies and finely chopped worms. DAY ONE Section D, Peg 6 I had practised this section, so I knew it was full of fish and was feeling quite confident of doing well.

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 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.

Four Times World Champion Bob Nudd comes from 7th position on the final day to win the 2018 festival. 124 skimmers on the pole at Lough Scur saw him pip runner up and Irish International James O'Doherty by just 800g for 1st prize. Wayne Fuller who had the top match weight of 17kg from Kiltybarden on Tuesday finished in 3rd, followed by Barry Smith 4th and Dave Stewart 5th. The five-day coarse angling competition was fished on Loughs Garadice, Scur and Kiltybarden over five hot and sunny days; as with the conditions all over Ireland at the moment the fishing was tough.
