Graham owns and runs a photographic business (Hilton Photographic) in Hull, East Yorkshire and has just started a series in Club Nutrabaits aimed at helping anglers improve their fish pics. For issue two, on self takes, Graham needed someone to take the pictures of him using the equipment … it would have been rude to have refused.
For once the weather was perfect for a days fishing, mild, generally sunny, with the odd shower, and just a light variable breeze. The venue in North Lincolnshire looked a picture, in the spring sunshine, and the fish were feeding.
Tactics were simple. 12 mm Trigga Ice boilies fished on a 25 cm Fluorocarbon hook-length, size 8 hook and braid hair. Baiting up was kept light, with just a scattering of a dozen or so boilies around the hook-bait after each take.
During the day 11 fish were landed including two twenties, including an absolutely stunning mirror for Graham, and a lovely old warrior for Brian.
As Brian said on the way home "That was supposed to be a work, but I reckon we’ll have a job getting anyone to believe that."
