Richard Stark Masterclass Day Decoy Lakes

This was a special 40th birthday present from Richard’s wife Jodie. His fishing friend Darryl Skinner had also come along for the day.

 

The wonderful Decoy lakes near Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue.

 

It was a warm morning with a moderate westerly wind. I decided we would fish on Elm lake.

 

Pole at 7 mts was the chosen method, cupping in 4mm Van Den Eynde hard feed carp pellets plus loose feeding 4mm pellets over the top with a banded pellet on the hook.

 

Both anglers were soon catching really well and had reached their keepnet limit of 50lbs before 1 pm and were returning fish as they caught them.

 

We left the bank at about 3.30pm. Richard and Darryl had both had a brilliant day catching more than 100lbs of fish each.
