What's in the March edition of the best selling Match Fishing Magazine

Joe Carass features on the front cover of the March issue, holding a Barston Lakes ‘special’ carp that he caught by altering his approach from the tried and trusted methods that most anglers use. Most venues have an ‘in’ bait at various times of year, but according to Joe if you’re brave enough to deviate from the norm and use a bait or method that other anglers aren’t, you can increase your success in matches.

Also in this issue we have Callum Dicks who was keen to show us some the tricks he’s learnt over the years when it comes to fishing the humble maggot. Maggots work everywhere in winter and all fish eat them, but there are technical aspects when it comes to how to feed them that can transform a peg from average to a match winner if you make the right decisions. We joined Callum at Ivy House Farm down in Wiltshire and he’s got some top tips and tricks you can easily incorporate into your own fishing.

There’s plenty more inside in this issue too from the likes of Andy Power, Matt Godfrey, Nick Speed, Sam Collett, Pemb Wrighting, Glen Picton, Mark Malin, Rob Perkins and more.

There’s plenty of new tackle including a close look at a new baiting up rod from Daiwa, an Up Close on FIVE new pole models from Shimano, Alex Bones takes a good look at the new range of Parabolix Pro rods from MAP and we also sent him down to Todber Manor to put the new Daiwa Tournament S Competition pole through its paces.
Daiwa has been especially good to us this month and agreed to let us give away one of the new 100 Seatboxes (reviewed in the January issue). It’s worth £550 and one lucky reader is going to win it… how fantastic is that?!

Editor’s Picks

Worsbrough’s New Era
Many venues evolve over time and that’s definitely the case with Worsbrough Reservoir on the outskirts of Barnsley. We joined Nick Speed for a session to see exactly how the venue has changed in recent months.

Be Different!
We met up with NuFish-backed Joe Carass at a very wet Barston Lakes, where he showed us some of the tricks that help him get an edge in match conditions.

The Mushy Meat Feeder
Daiwa’s Pemb Wrighting is at Todber Manor to show how he replicates his pole approach when fishing the feeder. Many anglers opt for Method or hybrid feeders with pellets but why do that when meat works so well in the winter and spring?

Mastering The Maggot
The humble maggot is an essential bait for many anglers on commercials in winter, but there’s a lot more to it than simply catapulting a few grubs around your float tip. Here Maver-backed Callum Dicks has some great advice on how you can improve your weights by knowing the intricacies and variations of feeding.

In Conversation With… Matt Godfrey
David Haynes continues his chat with Team England angler (and Match Fishing columnist) Matt Godfrey, and talks more about his international career and the future of the England team.

Pot Or Ping?
MAP’s Mark Malin heads to Tunnel Barn Farm to explain how to approach F1-dominated venues as we transition from winter into spring.
