A Year on Milton

A Year on Milton Pan I walked the Milton pan lake 3 years before even casting a bait into its water knowing it held a very special common. On first sight it was completely different to any other angling I had done, with its gin clear water, vast amounts of weed and big visible gravel

Field Testers

We often get asked about field testing positions with ABS. Well here is an opportunity! We are in the early stages of testing a new bait which has massive potential to be the best we have ever produced. This really could be something special, because of this we have decided that this bait needs testing

Seems an age now since I started crossing the channel to further my quest for big carp on venues across France, whether it be to a commercial venue, a big public water or river. The build up before a trip, preparation of tackle, bait and doing some homework on my chosen venue all adds to

Paste Baits in Winter

Winter is definitely a time to think carefully about your baiting situations and strategy. With the drop in water temperatures and the carp being cold blooded, it makes good sense to look at maximising digestion and increasing solubility with a view to keeping the bites coming in adverse conditions. A slower metabolic rate often means

January Mirror’s for Oz on the i-bait.

An early January visit to Yateley's Sandhurst venue paid off for Oz with two cold water January mirrors.
