Nick Speed is on the front cover of the March 2021 issue and inside the magazine we join him at Lindholme Lakes, a venue that’s become a second home for him over the years. In the feature he discusses how you can read your swim and use the information to help you make key decisions and make the most of your peg.
Elsewhere we join Steve Ringer at Barston Lakes where he shows you how to ‘dob’ for carp on the feeder, Andy Power gives you his top 10 tips for tackling commercials in spring and Des Shipp is at Monkhall Fishery to show some of the pellet tactics he uses as the water begins to warm up.
There are also features with Steve Tucker, Wayne Sharman, Dan Webb, Alex Bates, Lottie Wootton and James Robbins, as well as our regular contributors Darren Cox, Kye Jerrom, Billy Makin and last but not least, Andy May. We’ve got plenty of new gear including Daiwa’s 20 Tournament QD reel, Preston Innovations’ rod rests and Browning’s £499 Targus seatbox, which you can also win!
