The club stocked F1’s in Firtol and Wilderness Top Lakes during the closed season. This is the first time we have had F1’s in any of our lakes and we are really pleased to hear so many anglers are enjoying catching them in the first few weeks of the season. Mike Edwards caught this net of Bream and F1’s from Firtol last week, fishing the pole around 10m out and with maggot on the hook. F1’s are pretty shy fish generally and fishing as if you were targetting Crucian Carp or Roach, but with slightly heavier rigs is likely to be most successful. They are often to be found up in the water so trying on the drop is worthwhile.
