Method Feeder fishing for carp on a large stillwater like this is far from a chuck-it-and-chance-it approach. I’m sure hurling a feeder randomly into the lake will you catch you fish, but applying more thought to the process will catch you even more! 

Here at Boddington Reservoir and similar carp venues you could be waiting up to 30 minutes for a bite – but averaging 10lb they’re worth waiting for! You clearly don’t need many fish for a match winning weight, so patience plays a big part. 

While we wait for summer to arrive the carp are still spending most of the day at range, so you need the right gear to reach them. Hopefully my key points will help you get the most from long-range sessions on waters like this.
