After some red-hot action last year, Aston Park Fisheries, just off junction 31 of the M1 in Sheffield, have some exciting matches planned for this coming winter.
The Saturday Silverfish Winter League consists of 12 matches, and is a silverfish only event. The venue owner, Alex Mitchell, is excited about the event, and has guaranteed an exceptional payout with the winner picking up at least £1000!
Last years winner was Pole Fishing regular, Paul Slack. Speaking to us, Paul was already excited and said:
“Last year’s league was one of the best winter series I’ve fished. Of course, it was great winning, but the fishing on offer is the main reason this venue is so popular. I caught 20lb plus bags of silvers when most venues were covered with ice!
“All kinds of different tactics work too. Loose feeding maggots is a great ploy for ide, while fishing with expander pellets or dead maggots, groundbait and micro pellets resulted in sole stunning skimmer catches.
“Bloodworm and joker is also allowed, although you really don’t need it! Last year, some of the early and late matches were won with over 60lb plus of silvers!”
The dates for the Silver Fish league are:
