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.

Pure Class!Tom Scholey inspects a new range of match rods from Free Spirit, a brand that has been synonymous with fine-quality carp fishing tackle for many years… Making a break into the super-competitive match rod market is not an easy move to make, especially when your company’s past presence in the match fishing market has been, well, non-existent! But this move is one that Free Spirit is making – and in Match Fishing’s opinion, its entry into this market will not be good news for the competition, simply because they make exceptional fishing tackle. Speaking to some of my friends from the carp fishing world (where Free Spirit carp rods are among the most highly respected available) I was told to expect quality, and when the rods arrived in the office I knew that we were in for something special. I was actually shown two ranges of rods – the CTX range (showcased here) and a range known as HiS – which were still prototypes when we saw them, but will soon hit the shelves as the company’s flagship rod range. Look for the review in a forthcoming issue.

Claimed by Middy to be the world’s first ever chair designed for both pole and feeder fishing, the MX-100 fills an important niche in the whole seatbox/fishing chair market. If you’re an angler for whom a seatbox is an unnecessary extravagance, you don’t want to have to settle for an unsuitable carp angler’s chair or, even worse, a garden seat. Neither option is particularly comfortable to fish from, especially if they have arms, and nor are they much suited to the demands of fishing the pole or feeder. Enter the Middy MX-100 Pole/Feeder Recliner Chair.

Joe Carass checks out the Centris NT reels, a new era in reel design from Preston Innovations. Preston Innovations has really kicked on recently with some terrific tackle releases that are becoming must-haves for any angler. It has been at the very forefront of the feeder revolution and that association with feeder fishing only looks to be growing stronger. The one thing missing was a really good range of reels; cue the development of the Centris NT range.
