Some tough river conditions make for exciting sport over the three day festival at Burton. 2011 Coors Shakespeare Burton Three Day Angling Festival River Trent at Burton60 pegs Day OneThe first day of the festival was eagerly awaited but conditions didn’t look too promising – a low gin clear river greeted the 60 competitors. But surprisingly the roach and dace shoals decided to feed. First blood went to Lincs County’s Phil Foster who fished for roach for 2hours on the waggler and maggot before targeting two late barbel on feeder and pellet, which together weighed 18lb giving him a total catch of 26lb 6oz.

Poles – the choice is almost endless! So, why spend your hard-earned cash on Garbolino’s latest G-Max 600 model? Alex Bones reveals why…The first thing that struck me when I removed this pole from its holdall was the finish! “Wow… silky smooth,” I said to my MF colleague, Joe Carass. However, upon assembling it to its full 14. 5m supplied length I must admit that I was dubious. Why? Because it felt so light, manageable and stiff… yet Garbolino says, and I quote: “It’s suitable for comfortably fishing elastics to a size 20” – surely it couldn’t be this good and handle the punishment associated with modern-day carp fishing?I treated the pole to its virgin session at the popular Leicestershire fishery, Makins.
