We join DNA videographer, Ricardo Teixeira, as he begins his campaign on famous Yateley venue, Swan Valley Lakes, a venue said to contain approximately 10 old, gnarly 40-pounders and around 50 back-up 30 thirties. However, at nine acres in size and home to a number of snags and places for the fish to hide away, this is anything but an easy venue and Ricardo will need to be at the top of his game over the course of the season to get amongst the jewels this venue has to offer. Ric takes us through his whole approach to fishing a water for the first time, beginning with swim selection, feature finding and baiting strategies. Keeping in with tradition, Ricardo begins his campaign on the local Yateley café, but will it bring him luck right from the off?
