  • edgbaston reservoir

    I doubt your thinking of carp or pike (specimen style) which leaves you with the bream as your only realy viable option(feeder at med to long range),its hardly fished at all(last sat there were 2 bivvy boys on the entire lake),if you give it a go i would suggest the ballroom bank(only access by car) with maggot caster and worm(or combos of them)or the often neglected breadflake on a bigger hook,corn for some reason doesnt seem to work too well.Regards Peter.

        i used to fish it alot many years ago -some very big matches at one time -to win you had to catch bream but if you was not on them you could catch roach short -but they would win you nothing -there must be still plenty bream in there,and as you are near it anyway why not pre bait it - 50 balls ,use brown crumb with some cheap horse type feed to bind it put liquid molasses in it,with corn,caster even pellet on a couple of occaisions -more the merrier - then give it a go.
