Frequently asked questions at Glehias
Lee Johnston, owner at Glehias, gives you some advice on bait & tackle;
The most frequent question we are asked is “how much bait do we need?”
Of course the fish feed differently at different times of the year and different fishermen fish different techniques, but as a rough guide we advise approximately 4-5kg of boilie and 6-8kg of pellet (or similar) per man per week.
If you are planning on using our Quest Baits boilies, you will need to order the main bulk of your bait with us at least one month before your holiday to ensure that it will be here ready and waiting for you. If you do run short whilst here, we always have enough pellet and boilie in stock to top you up.
Since opening we have seen several anglers losing many fish before they manage to land them… this is often down to hooks being too small. Having a light set-up will look much less conspicuous, but it’s doing you no favours if you don’t land many of those hard earned runs. Main lines ideally should have a 12-15lbs breaking strain and hook links a couple of lbs lighter, size 6 hooks in wide gape form or standard size 4 hooks are good for the carp fishing and size 1 for cat fishing. 2 to 4oz leads and 2.5 to 3.5lb test curve rods will cover any type of fishing on our lake.
