Introducing... Match Fishing November 2023

The biggest domestic feeder-only competition is the Feeder Masters event, with the two-day final fished at the prolific Upper Tamar Lake down on the Devon/Cornwall border. Lee Kerry has made it on to the cover of the November issue because incredibly he’s just won the title for the third time and in this month’s magazine we’ve got a report on the event from Joe Carass, who was on the bank all weekend to see how the final unfolded.

Also on the theme of feeder fishing, editor Dave Wesson travelled down to Gloucester to meet the anglers of Team Gloucester, who won this year’s Feeder National. There’s not a household name among them but they beat the best feeder anglers this country has to offer as they became national champions on their home water. Also in the November issue we joined Darren Cox at Makins Fishery where he explained how to change your approach on commercials as we head into winter. And there’s plenty more top tips and advice inside from the likes of Michael Buchwalder, Andy Power, Matt Godfrey, Lee Edwards, Richard Chave, John Brooks and Kye Jerrom.

On the tackle front, Alex Bones has been out on the bank testing a couple of hand-picked feeder rods from the new X3 Precision range from Shimano. He’s also had a close look at the new Gore-Tex smock from Halkon Hunt which is sure to be popular with pole and feeder anglers alike. There’s plenty of top tackle and bait in New Gear and finally in our latest free-to-enter competition, you can win three Colmic Shield RX Whips worth £314.97!
