John Tilbrook kindly took the time to write up his experience after a week at Malvoisine. Here's an extract below...
'..My new swim posed some new challenges for me. Since the first fish of the session I’d not used a bait-boat and didn’t really want to have to rely on one now but the far-bank features were much further away, the baiting spoon technique was not an option and I needed a re-think to get to what I assumed would be the going areas. To achieve this I changed from the fluorocarbon main line I’d been using and put on spools of Korda Adrenaline paired with distance pendant leads, shorter hook-links and shorter lead-core above the lead. The change worked and with my best casts I was able to drop baits within a meter or so of the features I was aiming to reach. A walk round to the opposite bank enabled me to bait-up accurately. The move again proved worthwhile and my first fish from in front of the distant tree turned out to be a most beautifully proportioned 30lb 10oz common with big, bold scales and deep orange colouration to it’s anal and caudal fins..'
