So was having a wonder around yesterday and came across Alan, Alan & Lynn have been coming to Cranford for 15+ years so he knows what works! was having a chat and noticed one of his rods was dangling over the cricket pitch swim with a fully loaded method feeder just below the surface. Whats the idea there then Alan? he then pointed to the swim and you could see several carp feeding off the bottom, the rudd and skimmers where attacking the ground bait and the carp were hoovering up all the dropped particals.... He had eight carp in that morning session not 2 foot from the bank so a bit of laterial thinking and learn something new every day!!!
