Ex World Champs silver fish battle. Sensas-backed star Sean Ashby has won the latest round of the Northern Sensas Challenge league at Hayfield Lakes near Doncaster, with a massive 22-15-0 net of silver fish. In a rare twist of fate, the Starlets team man drew next to his England teammate Alan Scotthorne, and the inevitable battle ensued. Alan was unable to keep quality fish coming, however, and the addition of a couple of bonus fish in the shape of a tench and a bream saw Sean finish comfortably clear of Alan’s 13-12-0 effort.

New forum puts the questions to the experts. A new angling forum is to be launched next Monday, giving users the chance to have their questions answered by the best names in the business. The aptly name ‘Angling Answers’ has sections for carp, match, coarse, sea and fly anglers – and is powered by DHP Ltd, one of Europe’s largest independent publishers of fishing magazines. The forum is the brainchild of DHP’s operations director, Roger Mortimer, who has seen similar forums working well in other sectors, and noticed a gap for a technical and tactical-based forum in the angling market.

Bright future for historic match venue This time last year, the future looked iffy for one of the Country's most historic match venues – as new police regulations made accessing the roadside of Lincolnshire’s Fossdyke Canal almost impossible. The ruling by Lincoln’s chief constable meant that anglers were no longer able to park their cars alongside the busy A57 that runs alongside the most prolific stretch of the canal making accessing the 100 peg stretch almost impossible. Fortunately for anglers, this has now changed – thanks to two kind hearted people who are allowing anglers to park their cars on their property – giving two easy access parking points at two different points along the waterway. Match organiser, Alan Henry explained: “Everyone was gutted when we lost the roadside, as it is by far the fairest, and best stretch of the Fossdyke canal –and has been home to some very historic matches in the past.

Traditional bream tactics help Tommy Pickering to festival win! Tommy Pickering has won the Maver Larford Lakes Silverfish Festival, with a six point score. The Preston Innovations and Sonubaits backed ace managed an impressive three section wins out of four in the 38 strong event – pipping Andy Moors and Grant Albutt to the top spot. He explained: “I was very lucky to have been bought up doing a lot of traditional feeder fishing – and had the best teacher of all, in Dennis White. A lot of the lessons that Dennis taught me at Worsborough Reservoir in the early 1970s have rung true this week at Larford – and I have also been quite lucky at the drawbag.

He commented: “The last few months have been extremely hectic for me, as I have moved premises and opened up a large new tackle shop in Heanor, Derbyshire.

World Pairs champions join forces with Bait-Tech! Bait-Tech confirms its plans to continue on its upward trend of expansion as it turns its attention to Ireland. Two new signings for the 2014 season are the popular Irish duo of Cathal Hughes and Philip Jackson. These two anglers have long been considered to be some of the very best matchmen in Ireland, and during 2013 these thoughts were confirmed as they won their second world pairs event in as many years. Together with world individual medals and countless other festival and team wins, the pair rightly get the respect they deserve.
