Deano On Target - Dean Macey

In between filming Season 4 of Fishing Gurus and targeting a very low-stock venue for tench, our Deano has been getting stuck into the Walthamstow Reservoirs carp stocks. On his first trip of the year to the day-ticket venue Deano scattered 1kg of 15mm Mainline Cell boilies at a range of 40 yards into open water and was rewarded with a wonderful brace of commons weighing 20lb 8oz and 21lb 6oz.
Deano said, "Both fish fought their socks off, charging all over the swim and shaking their heads violently, trying to shed the hook. They definitely knew the score! Being in the right swim on this venue isn't enough, you also have to find the slightly firmer spots so don't be afraid to recast if they are showing
over you and your not getting pick-ups".
The winning tackle comprised 15lb SUBline, 15 inches of Dark Matter tubing, a simple lead-clip arrangement with 9 inches of 20lb N Trap Soft with a size-6 Wide Gape and a trimmed-down snowman hook bait. Well done Deano.
