  • Is it worth it?

    Is practicing on a venue the day before a match beneficial or could it potentially kill the peg? Your personal expieriences would be valuable.

    I've found that venues never fish anything like the same in a match as they do in a practice session. It obviously helps to know the depths and species if its an unknown venue but generally the practice session can give a false sence of security, followed by major disappointment come the day of the match.
    I practiced at Lower Broadheath last year and caught a lot of double figure carp out the margin. Come the day of the match I drew exactly the same peg and fished in the same place and never had one. If you want to practice a venue its best to book into an open the week before and fish under similar conditions.

          Agreed ....i think its detrimental to both your fishing and to the peg.

            Unless your at Rolfs then the second day ALWAYS fishes better.
