  • Hampton Springs

    I've got a civil service match coming up in September and understand it will be spread over 4 ponds.

    1 section on Rock pool
    1 section on Meadows
    2 sections on Long island
    2 section on Willows

    Anyone have any idea how to make a general approach as the venue is too far away to have a look at. We won't know what lake we are on till the day so I don't want to spend loads on bait that won't be used up.

    Not to sure but i live about 45 mins away and it,s always in fish report of local paper every thursday and it,s always big bags from there sometimes over a ton,A lot of pole anglers fish the matches and use ,pellets for carp mainly they also corn ,meat a very good venue they always seem to catch plenty. Why dont you phone and speak to the owner i,m sure he would answer any questions you have .Hope this helped a bit.

          how do you enter the civil service match?


          • #6
            There are normally qualifiers held around the country. The final normally has 11 or 12 teams of six. It's open to members of the civil service sports association.

            Cheers for the replies looks like bomb and pellet.
