Top Tips: 

Always be prepared, never leave anything to chance .

Never give up,  because you can still get a result if some bonus fish turn up.

Try to work out whats the best feeding technique on the day and don’t be afraid of putting some bait in to make something happen because the noise can draw a fish into the area .

Never ignore silverfish on commercials, on those tough days and tough pegs you will be surprised how big some of the bags of silverfish you can catch on commercials, combined with a few carp early and late you may just put together a winning weight.   

Asses the conditions when you get to your peg before making your plan. Dont go to your peg with one set idea! Things can change, especially the conditions.
