Consultant Sam Jefferys got the Wolf rods out before the lockdown, fishing a Lincolnshire water he had a mega hit with some stunning fish thrown in…

Little beauty
Team member Manuel started again a short session at his small local river. Some handfuls of hempseed and sweetcorn with only ten boilies on top should be enough for this days.
In this close range situation the smooth action of the X-Serie Rods is perfect to bring fish safely into the net.
Job done with this beautiful mirror, one for the future... 

We visited an Austrian lake for 5 days.
I decided to go with the 3,60 ft 3,5 lbs Wolf X Rods, because there is not possible fishing with baitboat. The distance what I played 90 meter, and I caught many carp from 6 to 10 kg, but I made pictures just from the bigger ones. 
Every morning I woke up on the Delkim sound 💗 That was the time of the bigger ones. First day morning a 16,5 common, second day 18,20 common, third day 14,70 mirror, and the last one a 15,50 common. 
Unfortunately we got a news on Friday evening, that we had to leave the lake on Saturday till 12:00 o’clock because all lakes will be closed in Austria because of Corona.
So in the end it was a very good session we catch maybe 25-30 carp in the 5 days with some bigger boys. 


I had been on my lake for a few hours, did my Bailiff check, got my rods back on the spot and as soon as it started to get dark, my left hand rod rattle into action and then my right hand rod woke up. 

Resulting these two low double mirrors, they were more than welcome in the freezing cold weather.

A fish from the past few days!
Deep fishing in winter?
Our team leader Gonzo has a completely different opinion. He claims to catch 90% of his winter fish in under 1.5m!
Whether sunshine or snow and rain horizontally …
What experiences have you had there?
The carp I caught last weekend…

Shortly before Austria got under quarantine, Armin Eibl managed to get on the bank for three days – with success! He caught an absolute chunk!

Richard Shenton Bags up at Linear

UK Consultant Richard Shenton bags some beauties on a recent session whilst out filming at Linear Fisheries, The Oxfordshires beauties were caught whilst fishing at 100 yards.

Well done.

My first session on the water this year. Friday evening very late came to the water, then quickly build everything up and prepare the rods before it gets dark they should lie in their place. 

A single boilie should bring me the fish I hoped for. At 11:25 p.m. the redemptive sound was finally heard. Now it was quickly out into the waders in and down to the rods, already at the first crank turns I felt that it was not a small fish. After a felt eternity I saw him in front of me so beautifully he glowed in the moonlight.

Last weekend our German Teamer Manuel went to a small river for a day session. Searching possible “holding areas” and frequently changing the spot in combination with attractive feed was his tactic for the day. Good decision… already the third spot on his river walk bought him first a bream, shortly afterwards this wonderful river Schuppi into his landing net.

Our Austrian team member Florian Probst caught a perfect linear on his X3K rods. He uses the 12ft model with a 3,00lbs test curve as an absolute allround rod, which he can rely on in every single situation! 

Wolf consultant and carp catching machine Mike Jones braved the cold weather, at the beginning of this week and banked himself a stunning carp, look at the scales on that, Mike used XK1’s 3.5lb test and Mainline Baits crumbed cell and matching smart liquid to bank the beast, Well done Mike.

“A beautiful carp queen from self-managed private waters! The winning weapon is the Ball Maker + Method Feeder System with a very delicate method in contrast with the water temperature. The trigger was found near a tree that fell into the water last summer during a thunderstorm, 12mm dumbelles on a bellows mount. Obviously 12ft Wolf X1K with 3.5lb barrel.”
Angler is Michele Boniotto.

Italian team member Emiliano Bani grappling with his new X1K rods brings home a good satisfaction! Fun guaranteed, absolute performance!

What can we say! Wolf backed Ryan Hoare is back with a bang, he managed to get out for the first time since starting his new business UB Baits, using the X series rods in 3.5lb he had a mega session, he banked 6 fish in a couple of nights, amongst them was two 30s, we’ll done mate.

It couldn’t be too cold for our Austrian girl Sandra.

At her first session of 2020 she was using her new WOLF X1K rods and landed this little beauty in the cold morning.

Spring day in February… 

3 hour short session brought me this beautiful common in a shallow area of a gravel pit. The warm sunbeams made the carp move into this zone. Using small Pop-ups in different colors…the job was done after only 20 minutes…

The low temperatures don‘t seem to go away over there in Austria, but Florian Probst managed to get out and catch this beautiful carp during a freezing overnighter! He caught this fish on his new X-Series rods in 10ft. and 2,75lbs – absolutely good looking rods with an incredible playability!

We’ll you just can’t keep a good man down, Mike Jones fished his syndicate water this week where he bagged this long lean fighting machine of a Mirror, Mike used the Xk1’s in 3.5lb to tame the beast, Well done Mike.

A lovely small common to kick start my session, Single bait tactic and wolf rods doing it for me. Karl Brandreth. February 2020

Well with this mild spell that were having at the moment, a lot of anglers are taking advantage of it and getting the rods out, one angler that did is Wolf angler Louis Lyo, he did a few hours on a Liverpool park lake that’s close to his home, and managed this mid double common. Well done Louis!

Well it didn't take Wolf team Member Karl Brandreth long to bag this chunk of a mirror 2hrs after casting out on a 36hr session, he bagged himself a 33lb 4oz mirror and his still got plenty of time for another well done mate.

News from Austria:

Florian Probst was able to catch a few nice carps during his Christmas trip in Italy. Especially in the cold months, precise feeding is really important and the X3K Spod/Marker Rod in combination with our X-Spod is the perfect tool to guarantee, that the bait is landing exactly where you want!
