The fish tend to patrol the islands and feed tight up to it so always fish as tight as you can.

Peg choice is done on a draw basis, so if youre lucky enough to get a good pick, go for a peg where you can fish to the corner of an island as tight as possible.

DNA milky malt wafters have been doing the trick for me, in combination with solid bags so I’d always start off using bags, fishing tight to the islands.

In my PVA are 4 inch supernatural braid, it’s really supple and perfect inside a bag, that with a size 6 widegape.

If you can get on peg 1 or 2 then definitely start there, the draw doesn’t allow much freedom but it keeps it nice and simple.

Tips for Millbrook

The biggest tip I could give everyone who is fishing Millbrook is to make sure you’re as tight to the island as possible, a couple of feet off is not good enough, get within inches and you will have a far better chance.

Secondly I’d say keep an eye out for showing fish, a well placed PVA bag or Ronnie rig over the top of it can produce.

Lastly, don’t ignore the shallows, in the Summer they will be tucked up in there.
