Craig Parkes Shares his 2014 Year in Review with us.

With work, studying for a PhD and preparing for the arrival of my first child fishing time this year has been limited. However, I wanted to get out and try some of the new instant action range Ronny DeGroote had sent me.

The 33lb 4oz mirror was the first fish using the new baits in early November. A snowman rig with a 20mm tangerine dream bottom bait and 15mm coconut crème pop up did the business.

28lb scaley mirror came on the same bait and rig in mid-November. I had to crack the marginal ice to land this fish.

Both rigs were fished with a scattering of boilies over the top. Both fish came in November 2014 from the Connecticut River in the Unites States of America.
