Catch the October issue of Match Fishing – out now!

Matt Pillay is on the front cover of the October 2021 issue as he plays a carp hooked on bomb and pellet tactics. Inside he explains why his favourite style of fishing commercials isn’t just a ‘chuck it and chance it’ method and how to catch more on it than others.
Elsewhere Nick Speed is fishing a live match on Laurels Lake at Lindholme where an unfavourable draw meant he was up against it from the off, Richard Chave targets chub on Somerset’s River Tone and Darren Cox reports back on a feeder only festival in Ireland. Steve Ringer shows you how to catch roach on the feeder, Graham West adapts to conditions when a session doesn’t go to plan and Jordan Hall shows us how he fishes paste at Monkhall Fishery.

There’s also plenty more from Andy Power, Andy May, Glen Picton, Mark Pollard, Lottie Wootton, Kye Jerrom and Billy Makin, while Matt Godfrey gives his account of this year’s World Championship in Italy where England managed a very creditable bronze medal.
There’s plenty of top tackle and bait in our New Gear section and tackle reviewer Tom Scholey gives a couple of new float rods from Colmic a thorough test on the River Trent.
