Paul Wilson & David Wood Masterclass Day Cross Drove Fishery

27.06.2016

Well done, Paul!

Well done, Paul!

This was a combined Christmas present from Paul’s wife Lauren for Paul and her dad David. The beautiful Cross Drove Fishery near Hockwold in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue.

It was a warm summer morning with a moderate westerly wind. Both anglers had been out with me before. David likes to fish with his 50 year old split cane rod. Paul selected the pole. Soon both anglers were catching well. David was loose feeding sweetcorn with corn on the hook. Paul was feeding 2mm soft feed carp pellets with a small pot on the pole, with a 4mm expander pellet on the hook.

We left the bank at about 4.30 pm David having caught about 20lbs and Paul close to 30lbs.
