Successful fishing continues despite the varying weather conditions

Some of the April showers may have been laced with snow and hail but anglers have still been heading out to the Fens - with some making it a family affair.
Jake and Tyler Sellens were enjoying their fishing at Earith Carp Lakes, catching some Mirror Carps between them, before dad Paul also got in on the action with a two Mirrors weighing over a combined 46lbs.
Both of those fish fell to the snowman rig fished over a good helping of St Ives Tackle Shop's Hemp and Maize mix.
Iain Cockcroft made the most of a day session with three Carp, the biggest at 30lb. The Stickybaits Manilla boilies proved a very reliable bait once again.
Phil Lee also struck gold on a local gravel pit with his first Carp of the season, a 27lb Mirror.
The St Ives Tackle Shop is now open for browsing once again but they are still offering a click and collect service including fresh stock of maggots, worms, casters, and frozen dead baits for Pike.

If coarse fishing is not your thing then fly fishing may be a decent alternative.
