A deluge of rain made the fishing difficult on Jack Jackson’s syndicate water, but he soon got them ‘Switched on’ after a change of swims.

“The fish were being tricky, with lots of cold rain causing the water temperature to drop a few degrees in a space of a few days,” admitted Jack.

“After setting up in a swim and spending the night watching the water, I spotted a few fish showing further down the lake. After closer inspection, I noticed the guy in that swim was packing up, so in the rain, I gathered my gear and moved down the lake on to the back of the cold wind and rain.

“With me using the Switch and the matching Hydro Spod Syrup, I knew it would only be a matter of time before they picked up the irresistible scent, and I was right, as I went on to receive four bites, landing three of them. The third and final fish of the session was the undoubted highlight, a stunning a double-row linear. Happy days!”

As well as the linear, Jack also bagged fish of 28lb 2oz and 22lb 8oz.

He received all his bites on Switch wafters, which he fished to a hard, silty area over a mixture of Switch freebies soaked in Switch Hydro Spod Syrup.
