Tom Delaney from Roscrea caught this fine rudd from Templemore Lake in the middle of the summer. Tom was using an 11m pole, but only using it at 8m as the fish in Templemore lake can be caught very near the bank, Tom was fishing in 6 feet of water adjacent to the sluice gate. He caught the rudd on sweet corn over a bed of brown crumb. All the ground bait was put in via a pole cup for accuracy & loose feeding 5 maggot’s every few minutes.
It’s not often we are sent in pictures of a fine summer rudd like this one so we thought we’d post it up; this winter is set to be a long one so we all need something to look forward to and, for some of us, sitting on the bank of Templemore lake catching beautiful rudd like this one would be just that.
