Though the skies looked fairer I went with minimal bits just in case and just fed hemp, corn and pellet 3 rods out from the Royal Box, 5AAA waggler and B560 #14. On my trusty waggler rod which is a joy to use. It has as it declares a progressive action and though it's clearly not a grunt rod it copes with some poundage if you take things easy but steadily.
Standard fare at present, and I split the shots a bit to get some on the drop if they were having it. And indeed they were.
Everyone loves a few pads dotted round a fishery and these are well established now.
