Over the closing weeks of the river season Angling Times News Reporter Chris Haydon was out on the banks in search of perch and pike on lures. Whilst catching a few fish, including a new personal best, he’s had the perfect chance to fully test Berkleys New X9 braid in a number of conditions, here are his thoughts…
I’ve had a brilliant experience whilst testing the X9 Lo Vis Green braid in both 10lb and 20lb breaking strains. These low diameter and low visibility braids are perfect for crystal clear water conditions which are common in the colder months. This attribute is particularly beneficial when fishing for species such as perch as the low visibility enables a shorter fluorocarbon trace to be used, which can greatly improve bite detection. The diameter also proves beneficial in other areas too as I only use a small 2000 size reel when perch fishing, which the braid sufficiently filled and sat neatly on.
Casting is where this product really comes into its own though. Great distances can be achieved effortlessly and accurately due to the zero stretch and low noise properties of the braid. Like all braids most anglers choose to spool up with, the Berkley X9 offers superior bite indication to a monofilament mainline, again, due to its zero stretch properties. This enables the angler to feel everything that the lure comes into contact with on the bottom. Whilst using the braid I found I connected with 90% of the bites I had from perch, which I caught up to 3lb 4oz.
An issue often encountered when using braid is tangles, but this wasn’t an issue with the X9, despite its extreme suppleness. In terms of strength the X9 also appeared reliable with all knots holding and pike up to around the 8lb mark landed with ease. I used a variety of lures including some big plugs and the braid cast them all without cracking off.
Despite several sessions the braid showed little signs of deterioration, even when often being left set up running through the rod rings for ease of use on my often short sessions. Overall this product is great for the mobile lure angler and will suit a variety of applications from roving with small lures on rivers to chucking plugs for big Stillwater pike.”

Believe it or not, there was a time before all-singing and all-dancing handmade pole floats were all the rage and it’s pleasing to see that many of the patterns that were on the go 20 years ago are still catching plenty of fish in 2018!
One of those is the Colmic Jolly, several of which adorn the winder trays in my seatbox and there’s one very good reason why – versatility.
In the smaller sizes, the Jolly makes a super float for fishing hemp or pinkies into far bank rat holes on canals and drains but up this to the 4x14 and 4x16 sizes and you’ve got a very good model for catching roach and skimmers on deeper venues. Go bigger still and the Jolly becomes a brilliant float for to hand work the whip or for running a bait down a big river.
With a classic pear-shaped body, carbon stem and thin plastic bristle, the Jolly remains surprisingly stable for such a thin pattern, the carbon stem giving the hookbait a slower fall through the water than if you were using wire. Dotting the bristle down is easy too as adding a No 11 shot doesn’t suddenly turn the float from a Belisha Beacon sticking out of the water to the proverbial lead balloon.
Available in sizes 4x8 to 8g, the only off-putting part about a Jolly is the pink colour – but who cares if it keeps going under?
Mick Wilkinson Steady pole floats
Simplicity is important to me when it comes to pole rigs for commercial waters and I try to keep my float choices to a minimum.
That means you’ll find only five or six patterns among my pole rigs and of these, the Mick Wilkinson Steady is my first choice for the majority of open-water situations in anything but a gale.
With a highly-visible but thin hollow antenna of 1.25mm diameter, super-strong polystyrene body and 0.5mm wire stem, these floats sit up quickly, are unbelievably stable and can be used with confidence with baits from sweetcorn to maggots.
My Steadies have taken a right battering over the years but even stems that have bent after fish ploughed into reeds have been easily straightened. They’re consistent in shotting from float to float, and I find the 4x10, 4x12 and 4x14 sizes perfect for most of my fishing. Mind you, I’m pleased hear that larger sizes than 4x16 are soon to become available for when the wind really blows across the Fens…

I’m not proud to admit it, but as I’ve grown older I have become lazier in my fishing preparation. But can you blame me, when there are products like the range of Guru ready rigs on the tackle-shop shelves?
My favourite of these rigs currently are the superb Super LWG Banded ready rigs. For over a year now I have been using these hooks in sizes 18 and 16. Both come supplied on 6ins of 0.13mm diameter line, perfectly tied with small, strong but flexible bands on a small loop. I’ve used them for hard pellets in 4mm, 6mm and 8mm sizes, and also for banded caster and worm when shallow fishing, all on the pole.
Hand on heart, I haven’t have a single band break on me, and hardly any fish losses either – and I’m talking fish from 12oz F1s to 15lb carp. No wonder I’m getting lazy…

TF Gear's new baiting system is nailed on to impress all carp and specimen anglers.
The Airbomb looks not dissimilar to other popular systems available, but it works in a completely revolutionary manner.
As it reaches your chosen point it hits the reel clip and opens in mid-flight, propelling your feed forwards. This is in sharp contrast to devices that open on splashdown.
The Airbomb works just as well with hemp, particle mixes, maggots, pellets, and floaters as it does with boilies, and the benefits are numerous. I’ll mention just a few.
It can be used to place feed tight up against features such as weed beds, or beneath overhanging bankside tree canopies, without having to cast too close to them and risk losing it.
Because the Airbomb opens in mid-air its split body section lands virtually silently on the water, making for a stealthy non-spook operation – nor does it land on top of your feed area.
This means it confuses and deters marauding boilie-munching gulls and waterfowl has to be a massive plus point, as is the fact that its ‘fast scoop’ design can be filled with one hand.
To that little lot you can add a robust, streamlined, aerodynamic body shape which delivers maximum casting distance with unerring accuracy.
Most obviously, it will help you to catch even more fish because the Airbomb provides a quite superb spread of bait over a small area. This creates a grazing spot, rather than a compact pile of feed that could cause suspicion and result in the fish spooking off.
Rarely in angling does something new come along that will have a genuinely positive effect on your catch rate. TF Gear’s new Airbomb does just that.
On a raw, cold morning at the Carp Society’s Horseshoe Lake in Oxfordshire, TF Gear took the wraps off this exciting new product, which has been under development with anglers of the quality of Dave Lane for the past two years.
My initial impression was that it looks very much like other ‘rod-cast’ feeding systems on the market. However, that thought should be quickly dispelled, because the TFG Airbomb works in an altogether different way.
It opens in mid-air when it hits the reel clip, then lands silently. The distance your feed is propelled forwards when the Bomb hits the clip does vary slightly, depending on the weight of the feed (particles being lighter than boilies), as does the angle and speed of cast.
Nevertheless, this feed spread distance is easily evened out by taking a couple of steps backwards when feeding boilies. What’s more, once you’ve had a few casts with the Airbomb, travel parameters of the feed are quickly worked out. During the trial, I had a few 100-yard casts into open water, and a 50-yard cast towards cover. Both distances proved equally easy to hit, and the Airbomb’s baiting pattern is as good as I could have wished for.
What’s more, it fooled Horseshoe’s legions of gulls, ducks and swans which know just where to sit when bait is being fed via catapults, throwing sticks or airborne devices. This was not only a hugely satisfying thing to behold, but it promised a substantial cash saving, given how much bait is lost to birdlife.
Deploying the Airbomb involves pulling back on the opening pin, filling it with bait, closing the doors and slipping the opening pin (between the rear flight fins) into a metal ring. Not once during the trials did I see the Airbomb open prematurely and spill its contents, nor did it ever fail to open on cue.
For margin and close-quarters tactics the Airbomb can be softly overcast before being reeled back into position. You then give it a sharp flick to open its eject mechanism.
Barring snap-offs you are unlikely to ever lose your Airbomb. My only problem was getting the trial sample back to my car without being spotted!

Top specimen carp brand Kodex has added several new items of terminal tackle to its range.
Everything from ready-rigs to surface controllers has been well thought out, with clever design tweaks that will stack the odds in your favour when targeting pressured and wary carp.
The Multi is a rig like no other. Its anti-glare size 8 swivel fits all popular lead-clips, and can be switched to a size 11 Flexi/Heli swivel (included) for heli rigs. You get two hook sizes with every rig – choose from sizes
3 & 5, or 5 & 7.
Hooks are super strong GenomicMGP Chods with micro-ground sharp points and a matt anti-glare finish.
They’re tied to the latest Micro-Strip 15lb coated hooklink material, which automatically sinks and pins down the rig, leaving you only needing to apply a small amount of Graviton putty on the knot near the hook.
Also included with each rig is bait floss and a micro rig swivel.
This semi-stiff coated hooklink can be stripped to reveal a flexible dyno-core. The pliable outer coating doesn’t crack when knotted. It sinks quickly and pins itself to the lakebed, excellent for bottom or pop-up set-ups.
This is the same material as used for Kodex’s ready-tied skin-coated stiff rigs and multi-rigs. In 15lb and 25lb options, on 20m spools.
These buoyant mini hair stops are shaped like a piece of corn and are designed to attract more takes. Available in fluorescent red and yellow colours, they provide added visual attraction to your hookbait, giving carp a target to home in on.
Each pack contains 20 pieces.
Meltz PVA Bags
Extensively tested by Kodex’s expert consultants, Meltz solid PVA bags are strong and securely sealed, but melt down at a quick rate for perfect presentation, leaving virtually zero residue.

Fifteen years ago, you knew where you were with photos and videos. Cameras were cameras, devices in their own right.
Now, everything has been turned into a Cyclops. A single digital eye sticks out of your phone, your laptop, your cycling helmet and your car’s rear bumper. And with submersible cameras such as the GoPro becoming massively popular with inquisitive anglers, it was only a matter of time before someone stuck a lens in a marker float.
The idea might seem fairly simple in this surveillance age, but the FishSpy is an incredibly sophisticated piece of kit that took the team at TFG years to perfect. Set against the fact that water and electronics will never be best mates, the designers had to factor in the challenges of battery life, range, connectivity and the practical concerns of fitting a camera into a buoyant marker float.
If you believe this type of equipment is cheating – and that’s fair enough – then at least appreciate it for its engineering. And it really is well made. Straight out of the box, the FishSpy feels sturdy and durable.
So how does it fare in use? As you would expect, it is heavier than a normal marker float, so a beefy rod and heavy-duty shockleader is definitely recommended. The FishSpy will transmit to an Apple device up to 60m (100m with an extra extender), or an Android device at 100m, and is certainly capable of being given a big cast without (too much) fear of losing the most expensive float you’ve ever bought!
The float will stream live footage to your phone or tablet providing it is on the surface at the time. Once you wind down the line to get a closer view of the lakebed you need to press record and then watch the video back when the float has resurfaced. Once you have established a connection (the float gives off a Wi-Fi signal that you hook up to) we found you could watch the live footage uninterrupted very well. However, re-establishing the connection after the float has gone beneath the surface and back again was a little more hit and miss. Cold water does nothing for the battery life either, so remember that summer performance will be better than in winter.
That said, we witnessed things we could never see without diving into the lake. Even in 10ft of water, the image clarity is excellent and the sight of sweetcorn fluttering to the bottom through the shafts of sunlight was surprisingly artistic. Putting the FishSpy on spots you thought you knew well will really open your eyes – the footage will both excite and rock your faith in your ‘mind map’ of your favourite swim.
Avid’s new Transit scales pouch has fully padded walls for added extra protection, while its semi-rigid construction also helps to keep your delicate instrument safe in transit.
The one-size-fits-all pouch can be used with all popular dial scales, and its clip opening front enables it to be carried with a T-bar in situ.
The Multi Rake is the ideal tool for quickly clearing weed, twigs and leaves from your spot.
Its design enables the rake to be attached to a rope and thrown by hand, or attached to a landing net handle or pole with the integral 3/8 BSF thread.
The versatility of having both attachment points means that this unique product can be used for weed clearance, creating small spots, clearing channels and quickly removing marginal weed to enable you to safely land any fish that you hook on weedy waters.
Multi Rakes are perfect for specialist anglers that like to rake a swim to kick up sediment and invertebrates, stimulating species such as tench into feeding.

This revolutionary new MX-100 chair from Middy offers the angler incredible comfort and tactical flexibility when pole or feeder fishing.
Its unique design allows for an extendable side bar to be fitted on to the main frame, while the supplied front and rear pole rests are sturdy enough to hold a pole securely in place... hands-free. A handy rear rippled foam rear rest can be used to keep pole sections neat, tidy and close to hand after they have been unshipped. Next comes an up-and-over mid-positioned rest that can be flipped over to act as a butt rest for rods or poles. Finally, the front rest’s graded head allows for quivertips to be accurately positioned, and also features a U-bend to hold a pole.
To all this you can add an intermediate side tray with fitment, and a one-way arm with threaded stick that acts as a keepnet holder. The chair itself has a cut-away section for easy shipping when using a pole, and is very dynamic, with a high padded headrest, adjustable legs, swivelling mudfeet and multi-positional recline settings. It can be folded flat for easy transportation.
Rear Pole Rest
This rear-fitted rest supports unshipped pole sections, keeping everything neat and tidy and preventing them from rolling away or being blown into the water.
Up and OverRear Rest
Push in the side button and this rod/pole rest turns over. It can now support the butt section of a rod or pole, allowing for hands-free use when feeding.
Swivelling mudfeet with a wide fooprint make the chair stable on even the most uneven banks, and they team up with adjustable legs for comfort.
A multi-positional reclining feature and a high, padded headrest make this the most comfortable chair you’ll have sat in in a very long time.
The MX-100 system comes with a handy sized side-fitting bait tray, large enough to hold a couple of three-pint bait boxes, a mobile phone, and sundry small tackle items.
The sturdily built dual-purpose front rest has a graded EVA section for perfect positioning of quivertip rods, and a U-bend for holding your pole when feeding via a catapult.
