POLES ›› PLAYING FISH ON THE POLE ›› Preston Innovations Catalogue 2011

Catalogue 2011 Preston Innovations

When pole fishing, it can be difficult to know how to play fish, which is why I’m going to reveal a few tips on how I manage a hooked fish when guiding them to the bank with a pole. Like everything in fishing, the more you adopt these techniques the more proficient you’ll become. Soon, you’ll be landing every single fish, just like the pros!

With my particular style of fishing, you can pretty much guarantee that I’ll be fishing with a lighter elastic than a large percentage of anglers. My main line and hooklength won’t always be light, but I’m a great believer that the greater resistance the fish feel, the harder they pull back. This is why I always opt for a fairly light elastic.

to get it to come mid-water, at which point the fight will commence. When fishing for wilder carp like those in Europe, these fish are a lot leaner and have often never been hooked before. They tend to hit the horizon when hooked! I find that if you lift the pole with these fish it can stop them and turn the fish in a different direction. Frantic stuff!

My main elastic choice when I am expecting to be picking off fish would be 11h. I probably use this diameter more than any other in the whole range, especially when shallow fishing when you’re not sure what species of fish you’re likely to catch or the size of the fish you’re expecting to land next.

The most important factor, which I think is essential when using the Pulla system, is to get familiar with your line and hooks. They will be under a considerable amount of pressure, so you need to understand the strengths of your setup and balance your tackle accordingly.

The quality this elastic provides, in my eyes, cannot be surpassed. It’s soft on the strike, so plenty of elastic can leave the pole with ease. In turn, the fish will move out of the swim at a much slower pace, eliminating the potential for other feeding fish to be spooked.

Preston Innovations has an unrivalled selection of hooklink materials and hook patterns, and I know I can trust these components. Just like the elastics, the poles and everything else in the range really - it’s built to help you, the Lee Edwards – Welsh International angler, land more fish.

“Playing fish on the pole isn’t just about how strong it is...”

This elastic also cuts down dramatically the amount of skimmer bream that can sometimes tailwalk. By using a Pulla Kit or Pulla Bung you can pull the fish back towards you easily. The distinct advanges of a Pulla kit over a Bung is when you’re faced with a venue that’s deeper than the length of the kit. I’ve used these kits on venues that are 5 metres deep! The technique I use is to play the fish as normal then break the pole down at the top 5, bringing the sections low and to the left.

playing fish on the

POLE

Slide the pole through your hand a little, reach out and take the elastic at the bush. When you pull the elastic out, move the pole towards the fish in a pumping motion. Repeat this a couple of times and the fish will soon be in front of you. At all times, keep the pole low to the water. The only real exceptions to this style are if I have hooked something like a barbel, as they are notorious for keeping close to the bottom. You need to lift the pole over the fish

Reflo®Power™ has been a revelation in my fishing and probably thousands of other match anglers too. It’s so strong for its diameter and it never ceases to impress you. It’s unbelievable how much stick it will take and it’s why I can always play fish with such confidence on the pole.

At the end of the day, playing fish on the pole isn’t just about how strong your pole is and the technique you use, but about the tackle you use and want to have confidence in. I use Preston Innovations because it’s the best, and that’s why I would have no hesitation recommending it to anybody. Good luck, and I hope to see you out on the bank sometime. ■

CREATE THE ULTIMATE FISHING STATION, JUST LIKE TEAM ENGLAND STAR DES SHIPP, AS THE MATCH MAESTRO REVEALS HOW HE SETS UP HIS SEATBOX READY FOR COMPETITION FISHING When Preston Innovations first started making seatboxes and complimentary Offbox items, I knew the development team understood match fishing. It’s such an important thing, for me, to be able to fish effectively and comfortable and have everything I need close to hand. Offbox allows me to do this. In the Onbox range there are world class seatboxes – and in the Inbox range there’s everything you need to load those boxes will all the tackle you could ever need – but if you can’t setup your box as a fishing platform and base station, you’re always going to have a tricky time on the bank. The great thing about the majority of Offbox products is they could, if you wanted, be left on the box at all times. I tend to add and remove items as I need them, but if you’ve enough room in your van, you can load up your Shuttle quickly and be fishing almost straight away when you get to your peg.

FLOATS ›› SHALLOW FISHING SECRETS ›› Preston Innovations Catalogue 2011

The versatility of the Space Station XSII that I use with the Offbox system means I am always fishing at the top of my game. I’m organised and therefore I can be more effective in my fishing. I’m not wasting time adjusting my position, because I can get set up and keep my eyes on the float or quiver tip at all times.

That’s what makes Offbox so unique and that’s why I use it exclusively. It’s so quick and easy to set up and it’s built to last, which is why it’s a market leader. I don’t want to arrive at a lake to find one of my attachments in pieces, which is why Preston have worked so had to get things as tough and robust as they can. That’s reflected in the finished product, which is one of the single most important features of Offbox. It’s tough as old boots!

Andy Findlay

But you do need to prime the swim first. I’ll start the area off with a big Preston Innovations Cup of pellets. In open water, I’ll feed for 30 to 60 minutes before I even put a shallow rig on. For loosefeed I use 6mm Sonubaits Fin Perfect pellets on a pole line – not many, but about five or six at a time constantly. Once you have fish feeding shallow it’s not unusual to see signs of fish feeding close to the surface but it’s worth leaving until you are confident that the fish are feeding well and are unlikely to be spooked, but there are times when it can be a technique that won’t work until the last hour, when it throws up several big fish. So the moral of the story is to keep feeding it, even if you aren’t getting bites.

ACCESSORY TOOL BAR.

TRIPOD ROOST KIT WITH SPACE BAR.

I can adjust this really easily and pick up my feed bait without even looking. It’s where I keep all my bait tubs for the session. Used with a Long Cross Arm it’s raised up right next to my hands so I can fish more efficiently. I want to watch the water, not my bait table, after all.

The reasons for this are fairly obvious and I always have it on my left side. It’s just easier when you’re right handed like me. I rest the rod on my leg most of the time, though there are butt rests for anglers who prefer it. The adjustment on the feeder arm means I can angle the rod wherever I like. I like the quiver tip to be around 4 inches from the surface, as this keeps most of the line under the water and prevents false wind bites and indications.

When you want to be mega, mega accurate, this support system is ideal. In windy conditions when you want total control you simply have to have this support. It’s fully adjustable, so you can set it exactly how you want to. This means you can fish comfortably in all conditions for the duration of a match or a day’s fishing. It’s strong, too, which is important when fishing a long pole. You don’t want everything wobbling around, and this support is mega stable.

I always use one of these now in all conditions. It basically keeps the pole at hand once you’ve unshipped the pole. After changing the bait or unhooking a fish, you have a lot of pole sections that need to stay nearby. The Pole Sock stops the pole rolling forward and getting damaged. I put this on a Long Cross Arm, again to achieve more adjustment options. This is important when you have a roller set behind you, as you don’t want to have to get off your box.

I add these to all my keepnets so I can make use of the Accessory Tool Bar. Like all Offbox products, they give you loads of options with angular adjustments and height alterations. This is essential when hooking fish and lowering them into the keepnets.

I can have up to three keepnets from this item of Offbox, perfectly placed on the edge of my footplate for easy access to the keepnet openings. This means I don’t have to get up off my box to put fish in the net. Because all the gismos are adjustable you can move the nets around to suit the situation and peg you’re fishing. It’s a brilliant bit of kit and one I couldn’t do without. I highly recommended it.

This is really easy to setup and put on your box and keeps all my top kits to hand on a stable platform. I attach the loose section to a Space Bar so I don’t accidentally knock or damage the top kits whilst fishing, whilst the tripod section prevents the tips of the poles getting obscured by keeping the tips high up off the ground. I can have eight top kits on this Roost, so I always have spare kits when I’m fishing.

Are you Sitting comfortably?

SECRETS Any spate of warmer temperatures and sunshine is perfect for targeting carp up in the water, and fishing pellet shallow is one of my favourite tactics. You can often see fish cruising around and I find that keeping a constant peppering of 6mm feed pellets hitting the water; you can induce a feeding frenzy.

But like all seatbox attachments, you can only carry so much, and the items I’ve recommended here are only those that suit my fishing. It’s a good starting base though, and if you’re looking at becoming a more organised and efficient angler, you’d be a fool not to consider Offbox. Check out what I use, and over the following pages, look at what else is in the range that will suit your own angling. Best of luck.

This is simple, sturdy and swivels to exactly where I want it. It’s a separate tray to my Bait Waiter, so I can put down groundbait bowls and extra hookbait options.

SHALLOW FISHING

www.prestoninnovations.com

Rig wise, I rarely use Dibber type floats for shallow fishing now, preferring bristled floats like the Preston PB Inter 7. I tend to fish my pellet on a micro bait band which I hair rig off the back of a PR36 hook. By using a band it’s quick and easy to change the pellet using a quick bander which is

important as bites often come quickly once the bait has hit the water. If you have a wind on the water, dibbers bob up and down and can move the hookbait unnaturally, where as you can read line bites better on a bristle and adjust the depth of your rig accordingly. The wire stems make the rig more stable and cock the float immediately, which is better fishing so near to the surface. I tend to have 2ft of line between float and pole tip so I can flick the rig past the tip, so it makes a nice ‘plop’ sound. Fish love this sound. I try to feed short of my tip so that when fish come towards me, the hookbait is the first bait they encounter. I tend to use 8mm feed pellets as hookers because they weigh the same as a number 8 Stotz. I can then use the 8mm hookbait to cock the float and set my shotting pattern accordingly. It helps keep the rig really natural and it’s a positive way of fishing for proper bites. Usually when you’re shallow fishing the bites are pretty quick, so it pays to have something setup this way. Plus, if the pellet comes off for any reason, you’ll see it as the float will bob up and out of the water.

lose very few fish when using this particular pattern. I’ve tried others in the past but the way the eye on the PR 36 is turned make the hook point sit nicely which makes hooking efficient none. I’ve had weights up to and over 200lb on one hook before, which is another reason why they’re my favourites! When you can keep the same size 16 hook on the end of your rig all day that’s really saying something about the strength and reliability of what you’re using.

“Spending some time organising your tackle makes a massive difference. You’ll get set up sooner, and importantly, start catching sooner.”

The key with all shallow pellet fishing is to keep feeding and adjusting things till you find the winning combination. I usually set one rig up at 18ins deep and another at just 10ins deep. I can then alternate between the two to see which produces more fish. Often a quick change can bring bigger carp, so it’s always worth swapping during quieter periods.

Tommy’s weapon of choice for pole and rod transport is the Hardcase Monster Holdall. “I can take up to four ready-made rods and all my pole gear in one”. Tommy’s tip is to use the two removable rod sleeves to hold two readymade rods.

During a break in the recent recording of the latest Winning Pegs DVD Tommy explained why luggage plays a pivotal role in his fishing. “When I’m fishing, especially in a match I can’t abide by anglers who throw their gear all over the place.”

Often, it’s the warmest layer of water that produces the most fish and if you ask match carp maestro Andy Findlay where he’ll be fishing in the warmer weather he’ll respond with one word: “shallow!”

What I love about Offbox is the versatility. The angle adjustments, height adjustments – the different spacer bars and angle blocks. It makes it the total solution.

At Preston Innovations we are constantly working to bring you the most innovative and up to date gear, this could be anything from a float to a new OnBox. We react to the changing trends and demands within angling – resulting in fantastic products. Why is design, research and development so important? Because if it is going to bear the Preston Innovations logo, it needs to be the best product we can make. Everything is designed for a reason – anybody can have an idea for a product, but it is an altogether different matter trying to produce something that actually works – and works properly. Good design is of paramount importance to us, and so is planning, exhaustive field testing and feedback from top match anglers. Preston Innovations consultants all provide top-notch analysis of every product we produce, with the necessary tweaks and refinements then made before a product is deemed ready. Perfection is hard to achieve, but it is always something we strive for. Our basic manufacturing principle is to make sure we create products that are fit for purpose – impressive items that anglers want to enjoy using and be seen with on the bank.

4  Preston Innovations Catalogue 2011

Within the Preston Research and Development Team, we have designers who utilise all the latest high-tech CAD technology to transform an idea from a sketch to a detailed blueprint. We can then take the idea forward, asking our manufacturing bases to create prototypes. Only the finest materials are used, whether it is a certain grade of alloy for legs on pole rollers, cork for rod handles, the best guides for rod-making, the finest carbon steel for hook manufacture, best grade latex for pole elastic …the list goes on and on. And we pride ourselves on being different to other manufacturers. The bottom line is that we want you to have the best product we can make. With Preston Innovations you can rest assured that when it comes to design and quality there is no compromise. If it bears the Preston Innovations logo, you can trust it to deliver and perform properly, time and time again.

p0les Developed to exceed the expectations of everyone from England internationals like Des Shipp, to club anglers wanting the best quality at an affordable price. Unlike many companies, at Preston Innovations we actually design our own poles, specifying everything from the taper of the mandrels to the types of carbon used and the range of top kits. We are totally free to choose who we want to make our poles, which enables us to use the very best pole manufacturers in the world.

Because the Preston Innovations design team are all accomplished match anglers, we have been able to design poles that are totally suited to fishing for bigger weights, using stronger elastic, fishing longer lengths, to fit in with the modern fishing methods most prevalent in matches today. For our top of the range poles we use the Italian based company Lerc for manufacture. Our association with them goes back over 14 years and they are one of the few companies we have found that not only have the technical expertise we need, they also listen to what Preston Innovations want. We speak to our consultants who are continually on the bank, fishing matches on a wide range of venues throughout the country and are always on the lookout for new ideas and requirements. It’s very difficult to satisfy all of the people, all of the time. Some want lighter poles, some stiffer poles and some stronger poles. But we have learnt over the years that there has to be a balance and compromise. Based on the information we get, one of the most important characteristics is high performance and reliability, which is what we want from a pole too. With most match anglers now fishing for carp on match venues, at some time or other, it is essential that poles are built with enough strength to cope with larger elastics. From the reports we hear, you all want strength, stiffness and lightness in one package. Because of our excellent relationship with Lerc, you can be sure that the Preston poles you see in the shops are exclusive to us. It’s only when we are totally satisfied that everything is as good as it can be, that we will give the okay on production, safe in the knowledge that it will satisfy the requirements of anglers all over the world.

New Poles You’ll notice a selection of new poles for both home and abroad for 2011, all of which incorporate and take into consideration the different requirements of anglers fishing different styles of venue. Some of our consultants can be quite unforgiving when playing fish. If they are happy that the poles are strong enough to cope with hard fighting fish, then so are we.

If Lee Kerry says it’s stiff enough, we’re happy. If Des Shipp says its strong enough, we’re happy. And if former World Champion Tommy Pickering gives us a thumbs up, we know we’ve got it about as right as possible. This is why the new GiS 14 has been launched. It’s stiffer, lighter, and more than suitable for the very serious angler chasing silver fish rather than just big carp. It’s sure to find favour amongst anglers with the highest demands, and has already proven it’s up to the task of professional competition fishing. There’s also been a new pole introduced to the GXR range, the 3001. This new 16m pole provides a next step up from the existing GXR poles, giving anglers yet more choice when it comes to poles of this length, something we know from the feedback we’ve been getting is an important factor in the current market. Take our new Slim Carp, Power Carp and Pro Competition ranges as another example, which have been developed for European anglers. These have been made with more action in them than a standard pole, to suit the needs of these anglers who prefer this type of setup. Again, it’s an example of how we are listening and responding to the needs of competitive anglers. The Slim Carp poles have been aimed at anglers like those fishing Belgian commercial waters. These particular 9.5m poles are line rated to 0.21, providing a slimmer-blanked pole that’s tough enough to tame big carp. These poles have a lovely action, too, and are durable enough to withstand all the requirements of European anglers fishing commercial carp venues. The Power Carp pole is just as strong and also line-rated to suit Europe. This ultra-tough 9.5m pole is perfect for European anglers chasing carp on commercial fisheries and is sure to become a firm favourite in Belgium. The Pro Competition series of poles incorporates a clever new system whereby an extension takes the 50 and 60 series pole to exactly 13m when the tip is removed. The extension can then be cut back when the tip is still in the pole, to give you a true 13m pole. It’s perfect for competitive European anglers chasing all species, who are just as fussy as we are about getting the most from their pole. ■

The Absolute 14 takes pole technology and performance to new levels. Quite simply it is without doubt the best pole we have ever produced. The balance, weight and rigidity at the full 16m length is literally breathtaking. A bold statement to make? - perhaps, but pick one up for yourself and you will see why we are so enthusiastic about this pole and why such demanding International anglers want to use one. Lighter and stiffer than any of our other poles, the Absolute 14 still carries an elastic rating of 16 when fitted with power kits. Being GiS compatible it’s an ideal step up for anyone who already owns a Genis pole. As with all our GiS poles it features Suncore finish which helps to keep sections cool during hot summer months, Fusion which increases the stiffness of the top kits making them faster actioned and Magic Steps inside them which helps elastic run smoothly. 16m Standard Pole Package ■■1 x GiS 14 16m Pole ■■2 x GiS Suncore Match Plus Top 4 Kits ■■3 x GiS Suncore Power Top 2 Kits ■■1 x GiS Suncore Short Number 4 ■■1 x Kup Kit and Kups ■■1 x GiS 10 Tube Holdall CODE

The ONE pole is the result of constant development between Preston Innovations and Lerc to produce the ultimate pole. Using highly advanced (and expensive!) carbon, The ONE offers the ultimate in stiffness and strength and has been designed specifically for the UK match angler, that fishes many commercials and often encounters large powerful fish, often into high double figures. This combination of strength and rigidity has often been the ‘holy grail’ for poles, until now. By removing the number 1 section and elasticating the number 2 and 3 section you can use it for big elastics and carp with confidence. Built using the exclusive Preston Genis System, The ONE features the Nanolith carbon construction system, an anti-friction Sun Core finish and Fusion top kits which are stiffer than conventional top kits. Magic Step top kits come as standard, which ensure smooth flow of elastic and work to eliminate judder, which can cause bumped fish. The ONE pole is the most complete pole we have ever produced and is unbeatable for UK commercial anglers who fish at 16 metres, where the stiffness really comes into its own. 16m Standard Pole Package ■■1 x The ONE 16m Pole ■■2 x GiS Match Plus Top 4 Kits ■■3 x GiS Power Top 2 Kits ■■1 x Short Number 4 ■■1 x Kup Kit and Kups ■■1 x GiS 10 Tube Holdall CODE GIS1/16M

TOP KITS

The Genis System (GiS) was developed to satisfy UK anglers who fish on a wide range of venues. Most UK anglers need a pole that can be used for carp fishing and silver fish. Whilst all of our GiS poles can take at least a 12 elastic in the match kit, more if you remove the number 1 section, there was still a demand for stronger power kits and the GiS system was developed. In very simple terms if you buy a Genis pole you have a huge range of different top kits to choose from, irrespective of the model chosen. These come in different strengths and lengths enabling you to personalise your pole to suit the exact fishing you do. Also available are the GXR kits. These are cost effective kits, offering excellent value for money, that fit all Genis poles and come with Suncore finish, which is ideal for anglers wanting to upgrade.

Catalogue 2011 Preston Innovations

When pole fishing, it can be difficult to know how to play fish, which is why I’m going to reveal a few tips on how I manage a hooked fish when guiding them to the bank with a pole. Like everything in fishing, the more you adopt these techniques the more proficient you’ll become. Soon, you’ll be landing every single fish, just like the pros!

With my particular style of fishing, you can pretty much guarantee that I’ll be fishing with a lighter elastic than a large percentage of anglers. My main line and hooklength won’t always be light, but I’m a great believer that the greater resistance the fish feel, the harder they pull back. This is why I always opt for a fairly light elastic. My main elastic choice when I am expecting to be picking off fish would be 11h. I probably use this size more than any other in the whole range, especially when shallow fishing when you’re not sure what species of fish you’re likely to catch or the size of the fish you’re expecting to land next. The qualities this elastic provides, in my eyes, cannot be surpassed. It’s soft on the strike, so plenty of elastic can leave the pole with ease. In turn, the fish will move out of the swim at a much slower pace, eliminating the potential for other feeding fish to be spooked.

When fishing for wilder carp like those in Europe, these fish are a lot leaner and have often never been hooked before. They tend to hit the horizon when hooked! I find that if you lift the pole with these fish it can stop them and turn the fish in a different direction. Frantic stuff! The most important factor, which I think is essential when using the Pulla system, is to get familiar with your line and hooks. They will be under a considerable amount of pressure, so you need to understand the strengths of your setup and balance your tackle accordingly.

“Playing fish on the pole isn’t just about how strong it is...” Lee Edwards – Welsh International

This elastic also dramatically cuts down the amount of tailwalking skimmers. By using a Pulla Kit or Pulla Bung you can pull the fish back towards you easily. The distinct advantages of a Pulla kit over a Bung is when you’re faced with a venue that’s deeper than the length of the kit. I’ve used these kits on venues that are 5 metres deep! The technique I use is to play the fish as normal then break the pole down at the top 5, bringing the sections low and to the left. Slide the pole through your hand a little, reach out and take the elastic at the bush. When you pull the elastic out, move the pole towards the fish in a pumping motion. Repeat this a couple of times and the fish will soon be in front of you. At all times, keep the pole low to the water. The only real exceptions to this style are if I have hooked something like a barbel, as they are notorious for keeping close to the bottom. You need to lift the pole over the fish to get it to come mid-water, at which point the fight will commence.

Preston Innovations has an unrivalled selection of hooklink materials and hook patterns, and I know I can trust these components. Just like the elastics, the poles and everything else in the range really - it’s built to help you, the angler, land more fish.

Reflo®Power™ has been a revelation in my fishing and probably thousands of other match anglers too. It’s so strong for its diameter and it never ceases to impress you. It’s unbelievable how much stick it will take and it’s why I can always play fish with such confidence on the pole. It’s the same situation with Preston’s range of connectors. There’s a huge range to suit different anglers tastes and different fishing situations, and the new Dacron Connectors have replaced the home made versions many of us were using prior to their release. There are Slip Connectors which offer a really secure fit and are really user-friendly, whilst the Hollo Connectors are coloured coded to match Hollo Elastic. At the end of the day, playing fish on the pole isn’t just about how strong your pole is and the technique you use, but about the tackle you use and want to have confidence in. I use Preston Innovations because it’s the best, and that’s why I would have no hesitation recommending it to anybody. Good luck, and I hope to see you out on the bank sometime

■■carp margin pulla - 6.7m Based around one of the most innovative ideas for years, the Carp Margin Pulla incorporates a Pulla top kit. This enables you to tighten the elastic when the fish is in netting range which leads to quicker netting. When using the ‘Pulla’ you can use lighter elastics which helps to avoid bumped fish, often associated with the heavy elastics. At 6.7m long the strong Carp Margin Pulla will not only reach the majority of margin swims with ease but in many cases the bottom of the shelf usually found at about 5 to 6m on man-made lakes. Supplied with a spare Pulla Kit. CODE CARPMARG/6.7M

I find myself using a combination of both Pulla Kits and Pulla Bung techniques. Each has advantages – depending upon the situation. For example, when I’m using matchkits and elastic of 13 Hollo or lighter, I favour the Pulla Bungs. This enables me to use light elastics and alter the tension whilst playing fish. This means I can start with a grade or two lighter than would otherwise be possible and pull (tighten) the elastic. The Pulla System makes netting a fish easier too. This is because you don’t need to have so many sections added on, therefore netting is less risky for breakages and also easier in cramped swims.

Des Shipp is a Pulla Bung master,

When it comes to choosing between a Pulla Bung or the Pulla Kit, there a few factors to consider. We caught up with two of our top UK Match Consultants to get their advice and opinions. Des Shipp – champions the Pulla Bung, while Lee Kerry explains his reasons for choosing the Pulla Kit.

Lee Kerry often uses his Pulla Kit – particularly in deeper waters.

When I am fishing in water which is deeper than my power top two kit I prefer to utilise my Pulla Kit. It offers the advantage of being able to get to your elastic whilst still having your fourth section attached. Playing a fish becomes just a case of reaching up and grabbing the small bead that protrudes from the bush in the number two section of the kit. Pulling it down allows me to adjust tension when playing a fish on my top four kit.

The Pro Competition models all offer a level of finesse combined with all-round strength when required. ■■Pro Competition Series — PC40, PC50 and PC60 The Pro Competition series of poles incorporates a clever new system whereby an extension takes the 50 and 60 series poles to exactly 13m when the tip is removed. The extension can then be cut back when the tip is still in the pole, to give you a true 13m pole. It’s perfect for competitive European anglers chasing all species, who are just as fussy as we are about getting the most from their pole.

 Rods

Catalogue 2011 Preston Innovations

rods At Preston Innovations we make things our own way. When you pick up any of our Carbonactive rods you’ll notice they have their own feel and characteristics. In fact, they feel unlike any other rod you will pick up. The reason for this is that we look closely at what you need through our team of consultants and design exactly what is required.

We recognise the need for specific rods to suit specific purposes, we have five very different ranges from the sensitive Picker rods in the Competition range right up to the hollow tipped Dutch Master river rods, which in the right hands will launch a bait well in excess of 100 metres. We like to think that we have float and feeder rods which cover all the situations a match angler is likely to be faced with, home or abroad. The Excel Series, for example, provides the most advanced Carbonactive rod range. Built on technologically superior, high modulus carbon blanks, the Excel Series has been designed for anglers wanting the finesse required for silver fish methods, using light lines and small hooks. But thanks to the trademark non-lock action of Carbonactive, these rods will also land plenty of match carp. Our knowledge of current trends and having anglers at the cutting edge of the sport helps us stay ahead of the game. Developing new ideas, methods and tackle to help you catch more fish is one of Preston Innovations’ fundamental principles. The Mini series rods are a classic example of us working closely with our consultants and developing a product that solve problems in today’s match fishing world. At the start of the current pellet waggler revolution, our consultants quickly realised that traditional 13ft waggler rods had limitations when casting accurately close to islands on commercial fisheries. A new type of rod was needed for accurate short casting and the Mini Series was developed. We use golf as an example of why shorter rods are more accurate. Typically, different clubs are used to hit the ball

different distances and to different degrees of accuracy. The shorter the club, the shorter the distance, and the more accurate the shot. With Mini rods, It’s easier to cast in tight swims and you’re always netting fish nearer to the bank, because of the shorter length, reducing playing time. Preston Innovations were the first company to recognise this trend and launched the Mini Series to fulfil a modern angling situation. The 10ft Mini rod was arguably the most popular rod of 2010, whilst the 11ft float rods have been the first choice for pellet waggler fans. With the constantly growing popularity of commercial fisheries we have extended the Mini series yet further to now include two F1 rods which have been specifically developed to cater to the growing number of fisheries which are now heavily stocked with shy fighting F1 carp which often require fine line tactics. Tommy Pickering has tested these rods all over the country and is landing many more fish due to their refined, expert action, which has been geared towards this style of fishing. There are also additions to the Competition range, which include two fine Picker rods that are ideal for small feeders and ledgers, and 13ft and 14ft float rods which are capable of casting wagglers up to around 16 grams making them ideal for larger wagglers and sliders. The C series range is also still going strong and features rods which are suitable for commercial fisheries and match sized carp with powerful through actions to help anglers land large fish. Once again, the Carbonactive principle means these rods are forgiving enough not pull hooks at the net, meaning more fish on the bank and in the keepnet.

With the new Dutch Master River Series and additions to   the Competition range, the further rod developments by Preston Innovations mean   that you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your needs.

Rods ›› The Mini Revolution ›› Preston Innovations Catalogue 2011

The mini Revolution When we recognised the need for short rods in modern match fishing, we developed the Carbonactive Mini’s. As this range grew and gained in popularity the need for a reel to compliment the range became apparent, this has lead to the introduction of the Inception 3000 mini which features a large arbour spool for easy casting and 10 ball bearings which teamed with any Mini rod make winding-in big fish effortless.

30003000 3000 3000

The Carbon Active Mini Series rods – offering a wide choice for serious angler’s looking for a competitive edge over their rivals...

recently match fishing has seen a huge swing towards commercial venues and match sized carp. These venues are more often than not quite small with islands and far bank features within easy casting range. The through actions of Mini rods combined with the smooth winding power of Inception reels make them the ideal choice for modern match fishing situations.

The short nature of Mini rods makes them ideally suited to short casts and tight pegs encountered on commercial fisheries. When playing fish on shorter rods several things become noticeable; Firstly, their through-actions and high performance carbon blanks enable you to play fish confidently without fear of hook pulls. Secondly, landing becomes easier as the fish will come up much closer and within easy netting range. This culminates in more efficient, safer fishing – great for taking part in matches. Combine all this with the lightweight compact Inception 3000 Mini reel. The larger diameter spool makes casting easier and the provides the underlying power to effortlessly wind big fish back all day long. Used together Carbon Active Mini rods and Inception 3000 Mini reels offer perfect synergy. Making this formidable rod and reel combination unbeatable.

28  Preston Innovations Catalogue 2011

This lightweight pairing helps to make the repeated casting and constant winding-in often associated with commercial match fishing childs play. Across the mini range of rods you’re sure to find one to suit your needs. For casting small method feeders either the F1 Mini 9’ or 10’ offers the perfect solution. Power lower down blends to a sensitive tip which helps cushion the feeder when you get fish close under the rod tip – often the crucial time when netting fish on the feeder. If you were fishing pellet wagglers for carp there’s a choice of two different 11’ float rods with different recommended casting weights. Again, both combine perfectly with the Inception Mini 3000 to make the repeated casting required for this style of fishing a pleasure.

The Dutch Master and Dutch Master River series are a comprehensive range of feeder rods, all designed specifically for the lakes and big rivers encountered on the European match circuit.

Arnout is the sales manager for Primo Distribution and started to distribute Preston Innovations, Korum and Sonubaits in Holland and Belgium around 5 years ago. In 2008 he won his first Shimano Masters, the biggest 3 day festival in Holland, a title that he retained in 2009. The Dutch Master rods helped him to win those festivals two years in a row as they help you lose less fish and see every bite. The rods are also perfect for casting very accurately and that is very important with feeder fishing. So once you have bought a Dutch Master rod you will enjoy your fishing even more!!

arnout van der stadt

the first product from Preston Innovations especially for the Dutch market was the 12’ 8” Dutch Master feeder rod. This rod was exactly how I thought a feeder rod should be and since then the Dutch Master range has grown and currently features 9 different rods. They are now some of the best sellingrods in Holland and Belgium. 32  Preston Innovations Catalogue 2011

We asked Top Dutch angler and Primo Distribution Sales Manager, Arnout van de Stadt to explain why he is so confident in their capabilities and to discuss in which situation he would use each rod. 11’ 8” Dutch Master Rod (40GRM) I use this rod for fishing in difficult conditions when all you get are shy bites from skimmers and bream. Best suited to a maximum range of 45 metres with feeders up to 40 grams (1.5 oz). This rod comes with 3 sensitive carbon tips. It’s also ideal when you want to fish the method feeder at short range.

12’ 8” Dutch Master Rod (60GRM) The 12’ 8” is the most versatile rod in the range and is the rod I will use the most during the year. You can fish short ranges with it if you want, but also if you need to change your distance during the match to fish a longer line there is no need to change rods. For example, you may be fishing at 30 metres and catch fish, but if the bites stop during the match and the fish back off from the bait, this rod has enough backbone to cast to in excess of 50 metres with ease. I would use this rod up to maximum of 60 metres with feeders up to 60 gram (2 oz).

13’ 8” Dutch Master Rod (80GRM) This rod is perfect for fishing with a light bullet feeders between 40 and 50 grams at long range. For example when you fish on a shallow lake at 70 metres you should

the right action to cast the distance and retrieve the fish, when I’m fishing the rivers with braided lines, catching roach and skimmers. I use this rod up to 95 metres with feeders up to 130 gram (4oz).

14’ 2” Dutch Master Rod (160grm) This rod is a little bit stiffer than the 14’ 2” (130grm), so in more adverse conditions when you are fighting a cross wind and you find yourself having to cast with more power and heavier feeders, then this will be the perfect rod. When you fish the rivers with heavier weights at longer range then this is the rod for you . I not only use this rod with braided lines but also with the new Power Max reel line, when fishing extreme distances then I use Braidcast 0.08 with the Braidcast tapered leaders. The tapered leaders are 15 metres long and I cut off the first 3 metres so I’m tying my knot to thicker part of the leader making my knot stronger. This is the rod I use up to 100 metres with feeders up to 160 gram.

DUTCH MASTER RIVER RODS The big difference between the normal Dutch Master rods and the River rods is in the tip section, the river rods have hollow tips so they will not bend as much in the flow as a standard solid tip. Drop back bites are registered more subtly meaning that hook pulls are kept to a minimum. The rods hollow tips make casting easier and more accurate with heavy feeders than with normal feeder rods whilst they still maintain the same fish playing action lower down. Their long lengths mean that when you have to fish with the rod high, you are able to keep as much line as possible out of the powerful flow.

“The big difference between the Dutch Master rods and the Dutch Master River rods is in the tip section” try to fish as light as possible so that the feeder lands without a big splash on the surface, this rod will be perfect for the job. Also suitable for fishing the method feeder at long range, the new 60 and 80 gram method feeders are no problem for this the lightest 13’ 8” rod of the range. I would use this rod up to maximum of 75 metres with feeders up to 80 gram (2.7 oz).

13’ 8” Dutch Master Rod (100grm) This is the lightest rod that I would use on the rivers. The 13’ 8” (100grm) is a stronger and stiffer blank than the other 13’ 8” rod. The diameter of the tips is also thicker, making them stiffer. This rod is better suited to cast further with heavier weights in more difficult weather conditions. I would use this rod on the big lakes and canals to cast up to 85 metres, and the slow moving rivers with feeders up to 100 gram. (3.5oz).

14’ 2” Dutch Master Rod (130grm) This rod is my favourite to fish on the big canals like the Amsterdam Rijnkanaal. This canal is very well known in Holland and hosts many big matches through the year. During the winter they fish a winter competition on this canal where you have to cast around 90m or 100yrds to the far bank where you catch big bream.

After using the first samples I was really impressed that I had seen every bite with the new tips, missing none at all. So I decided to use the 13’ 8” version during a big 4 day festival in October on the river Ijsssel, catching different fish like roach, ide, bream, skimmers, silver bream and barbel. The rod was a pleasure to use and it helped me to win this festival for the first time.

12’ 8” Dutch Master River (80grm) This has been designed specifically to fish on smaller and slow moving rivers.

13’ 8” Dutch Master River (100grm) This is the most versatile river rod and is good on absolutely any river. The rod feels absolutely perfect when you are reeling in big fish and gives you the feeling that you are always in control.

14’ 2” Dutch Master River (160grm) This is the most powerful rod in the range, and can be used in very fast flowing water and the most difficult of circumstances. Big feeders and long casts are where this rod excels, its length makes holding line out of powerful flows easy meaning you will in turn be able to use lighter feeders.

DUTCH MASTER

C ARBONACTIVE

Dutch Master River rods have been developed to expand the already popular Dutch Master range. The river rods all feature hollow tips which provide increased power, yet still remain able to detect the   drop back bites associated with this style of fishing. When under tension the tips are less bent than equivalent solid tips, this means that they move less on the bite and reduce the number of hook pulls. They are available in three lengths with the most powerful 14’2” capable of 100m plus casts with feeders upto 160 grams. The rods all have powerful tip actioned blanks coupled with lightweight triple legged guides and single legged guides on the tips to help improve tip recovery speeds. We have found that this is a major factor in being able to consistently cast long distances accurately. The rods also feature quality cork handles with positive soft touch reel seats and high modulus gloss blanks and are equally at home with braid or mono.

OnBox Catalogue 2011 Preston Innovations

se at boxes

Discerning anglers choose to use the brilliant Preston Innovations OnBox, OffBox and InBox system. With boxes, accessories and an internal organisation system that is second to none. All our Box products are unique to us. This includes OnBox, OffBox and InBox. We design, test and develop them and have them manufactured to our exact specifications. This ensures that they work and meet your expectations.

Continual Development

Where will it stop?

Working on the principle of giving you what you want and what you need, the range is continually evolving and being improved. An example of this was the previous introduction of a redesigned OffBox knuckle that is easier to use.

No other tackle company in the world sells Box products made by us. There may be some who copy them and even make them look almost the same, but unless it says OnBox on the product, it isn’t! The Preston Innovations Box range (On, Off and In) is now an established part of match fishing in the UK and offers the most comprehensive seatbox solution. Our range of XS seatboxes, plus the revised Space Station form the main part of the range, whilst the huge selection of OffBox and InBox accessories all work together perfectly to make the ultimate seatbox system.

Versatile choice

With more products being introduced there is one issue we haven’t forgotten – transporting all of your gear. When we designed the Space Shuttle we thought it would be used by anglers using the Space Station seatbox, what we didn’t anticipate was the high demand for a high quality transport system. Designed to carry everything, in as few trips as possible, the Shuttle has been a big success with anglers using all types of seatboxes. We have also added a new four wheeled version. So, however many OffBox accessories you own, you can be sure that by using a Space Shuttle you’ll be able to transport them quickly and efficiently.

Another thing that we do is give you versatile choice. As anglers ourselves we realise that not everyone is the same. Different anglers prefer different options, not only with the box they sit on but also the accessories they use to make fishing more efficient. The introduction of the Accessory Tool Bar gives you more space to use OffBox Accessories. It was designed as a direct result of anglers wanting to use more OffBox accessories than could be fitted to the seatbox legs.

InBox success InBox accessory storage works perfectly with the OnBox seatboxes and the small boxes fit perfectly into the drawers. So do the Slider Winders, which can be stored in the drawers, under the seat or in Add-On units.

It’s your choice Whatever box you sit on and whatever accessories you prefer, you can be sure that the Box range will provide you with the perfect solution.

Loading your Shuttle efficiently Making the best use of the space on your shuttle makes a huge difference when it comes to getting to your peg quickly.   Being organised does offer an advantage and makes life easier.

Always try to load your car neatly – this will make unloading faster. Assemble the Shuttle, making sure all the hand wheels are tightened

Place your seatbox on first, having pulled out the footplate, this further increases the load carrying capacity.

Once your seatbox is in position, you can load your carryall onto the extra space created by the footplate.

Load your pole rollers and bait bag into the Shuttle’s Utility Bag.

Next, lay your net bag across the top.

Securely fasten your rod holdall across the top using some strong bungee cords.

Interchangable inserts that fit most sizes of leg systems are available for OffBox accessories OffBox accessories offer the most comprehensive choice for anglers using seat boxes. Due to the unique nature of the insert system, OffBox accessories can also be used with just about all other manufactures’ boxes. By simply changing the insert to the correct one for the leg profile of the box, all arms, trays, pole supports, rod rests and roosts can be fitted. This insert also has another benefit, it enables OffBox accessories to rotate 360°, ideal for positioning trays and rods rests exactly where you want them. Over the last few years the OffBox range has grown out of all recognition and now includes a massive range of accessories to cover the increasing demand. Our range of Pole Rollers is not only the most comprehensive available, it is also the best, and many of the design features are protected by patents and copyright registrations. To complement the rollers there’s also a large range of roosts and roost kits that offer great choice and convenience. Pole supports have now also become essential for many anglers and the OffBox Pole Support offers fantastic stability and because of the grooved roller support is easier to use than fixed supports. The new Pro version is set to become a massive seller.

c0mfortably?

Create the ultimate fishing station, just like Team England star Des Shipp, as the match maestro reveals how he sets up his seatbox ready for competition fishing When Preston Innovations first started making seatboxes and complimentary OffBox items, I knew the development team understood match fishing. It’s such an important thing, for me, to be able to fish effectively, comfortably and have everything I need close to hand. OffBox allows me to do this. In the Onbox range there are world class seatboxes – and in the Inbox range there’s everything you need to load those boxes will all the tackle you could ever need – but if you can’t setup your box as a fishing platform and base station, you’re always going to have a tricky time on the bank. The great thing about the majority of OffBox products is they could, if you wanted, be left on the box at all times. I tend to add and remove items as I need them, but if you’ve enough room in your van, you can load up your Shuttle quickly and be fishing almost straight away when you get to your peg.

That’s what makes OffBox so unique and that’s why I use it exclusively. It’s so quick and easy to set up and it’s built to last, which is why it’s a market leader. I don’t want to arrive at a lake to find one of my attachments in pieces, which is why Preston have worked so had to get things as tough and robust as they can. That’s reflected in the finished product, which is one of the single most important features of OffBox. But like all seatbox attachments, you can only carry so much, and the items I’ve recommended here are only those that suit my fishing. It’s a good starting point though, and if you’re looking at becoming a more organised and efficient angler, you’d be a fool not to consider OffBox. Check out what I use, and over the following pages, look at what else is in the range that will suit your own angling. Best of luck.

What I love about OffBox is the versatility. The angle adjustments, height adjustments – the different spacer bars and angle blocks. It’s the total solution.

Super   Side Tray.

 ait   B Waiter

Telescopic   Feeder Arm

 ro Pole   P Support.

This is simple, sturdy and swivels to exactly where I want it. It’s a separate tray to my Bait Waiter, so I can put down groundbait bowls and extra hookbait options.

I can adjust this really easily and pick up my feed bait without even looking. It’s where I keep all my bait tubs for the session. Used with a Long Cross Arm it’s raised up right next to my hands so I can fish more efficiently. I want to watch the water, not my bait table, after all.

The reasons for this are fairly obvious and I always have it on my left side. It’s just easier when you’re right handed like me. I rest the rod on my leg most of the time, though there are butt rests for anglers who prefer it. The adjustment on the feeder arm means I can angle the rod wherever I like. I like the quiver tip to be around 4 inches from the surface, as this keeps most of the line under the water and prevents false indications.

When you want to be mega, mega accurate, this support system is ideal. In windy conditions when you want total control you simply have to have this support. It’s fully adjustable, so you can set it exactly how you want to. This means you can fish comfortably in all conditions for the duration of a match or a day’s fishing. It’s strong, too, which is important when fishing a long pole. You don’t want everything wobbling around, and this support is mega stable.

Catalogue 2011 Preston Innovations The versatility of the Space Station XSII that I use with the Offbox system means I am always fishing at the top of my game. I’m organised and therefore I can be more effective in my fishing. I’m not wasting time adjusting my position, because I can get set up and keep my eyes on the float or quiver tip at all times.

Accessory   Tool Bar.

 ole Sock /  P Pole Grip.

Short   Banksticks.

Tripod Roost Kit with Spacer Bar.

I can have up to three keepnets from this item of Offbox, perfectly placed on the edge of my footplate for easy access to the keepnet openings. This means I don’t have to get up off my box to put fish in the net. Because the accessory blocks are adjustable you can move the nets around to suit the situation and peg you’re fishing. It’s a brilliant bit of kit and one I couldn’t do without. I highly recommended it.

These keep the pole at hand once you’ve unshipped, I use either of them, in any conditions. You have a lot of pole sections that need to stay nearby. This stops the pole rolling forward and getting damaged. I put one of these on a Long Cross Arm for more adjustment options. This is important when you have a roller set behind you, as you don’t want to have to get off your box.

I add these to all my keepnets so I can make use of the Accessory Tool Bar. Like all Offbox products, they give you loads of options with angular adjustments and height alterations. This is essential when unhooking fish and lowering them into the keepnets.

When fishing the pole, I find it’s important to keep all my top kits close to hand. This is made easy by the OffBox Tripod Roost Kit. I use it in conjunction with a Spacer Bar to enable me to keep all my top kits safe. It also means I can keep them off the ground – therefore avoiding any bankside obstructions. This results in less tangles. I find always having the butt end of your top kits in the same place means you can fish more efficiently.

elasticati0n A growing range of quality products that stand out among others for their robust durability and unsurpassed reliability.

When we first started producing elastic there was only one type available and it was restricted to a maximum of number 8. We now have no less than five different types all available in the much heavier strains required by the modern match angler. With the elastics came the development of a range of associated accessories, as elastics got stronger they also got thicker creating a need for much larger bungs, bushes and connectors. With the slip range of products we cater to the needs of anglers who want to fish with elastics from the delicate number 2 elastics right up to the super strong 19 Hollo, across those ranges we have a product which fits the bill. Slip connectors which come in 5 sizes and provide a positive reliable means of connecting rigs and elastics no matter how heavy you choose to fish. There are now five sizes of Dacron connectors, which have been specially designed with a streamlined rubber bead that covers the joint and protects the knot in your elastic. These offer a lightweight alternative and are colour coded with super bright colours. Our range of PTFE bushes is one of the most comprehensive and offers the choice between internal and external types. No matter what size elastic you choose there will be a PTFE bush in our range to suit, we also supply a wide range of bungs, from the small Stora Bung for second sections with its winder to aid rapid adjustment, right through to the innovative Pulla Bung. All our accessories have been developed to offer a solution to a problem we have encountered as anglers ourselves.

Fitting a Pulla bung

It’s simple and easy to do. In fact if you normally elasticate your top kits you’ll   be able to fit a Pulla Bung with ease. The Preston Pulla Bung is a brilliant way of landing hard-fighting fish more quickly than on a conventional elastic set-up. This is especially true for bonus fish that are bigger than expected. The first thing to say is that you still play the fish as you would normally, it’s only when you unship your top kit that the Pulla Bung really comes into play. From that moment on, you have the option of increasing the tension on the elastic by pulling some of it through the bung and holding it in the fingers of the hand holding the pole. By pulling some of the elastic through the bung you shorten the length of elastic still in the top kit. This reduces the distance the fish can swim away from you and makes netting much easier. But it isn’t just playing bonus fish quickly that makes the Pulla Bung so useful.

1

2

3

You can also reduce the strength of your elastic slightly, or set it with less tension, which leads to less bumped fish, especially when fishing up in the water. Most of Preston’s consultants reduce the strength of their elastic by one size. Instead of a number 12 solid elastic they use a number 10. For Hollo instead of a size 13 they reduce the elastic to a size 11.

Great For Hollo The Pulla Bung is also brilliant for Hollo elastics because they are usually more easily stretched and being able to shorten the amount available beats fish really quickly. Still not convinced? The next time you hook a bigger than expected fish and are trying to net it on a top 4 or 5, think about how easy it would be if you had a top 2 in your hand with less elastic stretching out!

■■Pulla bung Manufactured from lightweight plastic the Pulla Bung enables the angler to pull the elastic tighter after unshipping the top kit. The advantage is that you can use lighter elastics for small carp, but tighten it for netting if you hook a bonus fish. This means you don’t need to play and net big carp on top 5s or 6s, which leads to better control, faster netting and less pole breakages. CODE BUNG15

DESCRIPTION Pulla Bung

The Pulla Bung needs to fit closely to the end of the section so that the tube sticks out. First push it in as far as it will go.

Keep your nail on the bung and take it out. Mark where this is.   It is important that you are accurate.

Cut through the bung one rib bigger than you think you need. You can then trim one rib at a time to achieve a perfect fit.

4

5

Attach your connector to the other end of the elastic and thread the elastic through the top kit and Pulla Bung.

Thread the elastic through the base sleeve and tie a knot. If you need more tension push the sleeve up and tie another knot.

Catalogue 2011 Preston Innovations

FlOats At Preston Innovations we not only realise the importance of high quality floats but also that those qualities change with the function of the float or the species being fished for. This is why we are constantly working with our suppliers to develop new patterns to suit the constantly changing requirements of anglers.

you need when you are on your way to a big weight is for your float to fail. Dura floats are just about as strong as its possible to make a float, we feel that we have been able to eliminate just about all the potential weak spots by gluing the stems inside the hollow plastic bristles. We have also completely removed eyes from the Dura patterns and instead used a spring which is attached to the bristle, making these floats practically indestructible in use. PT Series floats have been designed in conjunction with our Dutch consultants and Des Shipp, who regularly fish large rivers and still waters where the delicate presentation of natural baits is required. Some of these are also available as pre-tied rigs incorporating the highest quality components, making these floats accessible to everyone, even those with limited time to spend on their gear. We also produce a large range of pellet wagglers suitable for many different situations, we have developed wagglers with loadings and unloaded designs to suit personal preferences, insert tips for when bites are shyer, and super buoyancy foam wagglers with cane through to make them as strong as possible for bagging situations. The range also features some high quality peacock wagglers and wire stemmed stick floats for the traditionalists out there.

Oval Profile

Body Down Profile

Slim Profile

Oval shaped bodies are the most versatile shape and can be used in lots of different conditions. They are very stable and can be held still in medium and fast flows, lifted to work the bait and turn around the body when fishing on-the-drop.

Very stable floats for stillwater and slow moving water fishing, especially in rough conditions. Depending on the size of tip and body taper this shape of float can be used for fine bloodworm fishing or for carp fishing on-the-deck.

Slim bodies are usually found on smaller floats designed for on-the-drop fishing as they turn slowly and follow the line of the bait. A good shape for fine canal fishing where there is little tow and the bait needs to be lifted and worked.

We have specific ranges of floats which all cater to different needs. PB Inter floats have been manufactured after careful consultation with Des Shipp, the range incorporates some of his favourite patterns, many suited to commercial carp fishing. There are several features which are common across the range, to make tips brighter and easier to see in difficult light conditions, the nylon tips have been painted as well as being coloured. The paint finish has been made tougher to lessen the effects of line damage to the float body. We have also used high grade carbon and wire in their construction, and strengthened the glue used to hold the eyes and stems in place – traditional weak points on any float. Preston colours floats are an all round series of floats which cater to all different styles of fishing. From deep still and moving waters down to shallow fishing on commercial venues. Many of the popular patterns are also available on quality ready tied rigs, making them ideal for the angler for whom time is at a premium. This year we have reintroduced a range of Tyson floats. This range features many popular patterns which have all been smartly finished in the instantly recognisable Tyson blue. Their durability makes them the ideal choice for match carp fishing. The PB Carp range is a small range for commercial carp fishing, they have dura float construction with glass stems fitting inside hollow tips, this makes these floats extremely strong and ideally matched to the rigours of match carp fishing, as the last thing

h0o ks Line There’s very little that separates angler from fish,   so having lines and hooks you can place the utmost   faith is of absolute paramount importance. Line and hook choice is also a very personal thing and having confidence in what you use is vital. With the vast array of varieties coming onto the market there’s a temptation to keep swapping and changing, but is this really the right thing to do? Most top match anglers tend to use the same products for hooklengths and pole rigs and a different line for float and feeder fishing. And from what we know, very few change. Well for 2011, we’re giving anglers the ultimate selection. The Future of Main Line Preston don’t have a large selection of lines to choose from, but the ones we sell are totally reliable and can be trusted to perform how you expect them to, all of the time. We know this because we thoroughly tested them before they were released. Take Direct Mono, which still has many fans and provides a unique style of main line for use on commercial venues, or Braidcast, which is a sinking braid that outcasts almost all others. For 2011, the new Power Max reel line is a very exciting product that has totally transformed the fishing of anglers like Des Shipp and Tommy Pickering, who now use it for all their float and feeder work. It’s a line that makes a huge difference. If it didn’t, we wouldn’t be introducing it to the range.

Hooklengths For hooklengths and pole rig lines look no further than REFLO® Power™ and REFLO® Xceed. They’re the UK’s leading selling hooklength lines. Clear and supple both are incredibly strong for its diameter and totally reliable. All things considered, REFLO® Power™ offers the perfect compromise between strength, diameter and toughness whilst Xceed provides durability and finesse in abundance. New Hooks Many of you will notice a new range of PR hooks this year, the 400 series. These new patterns have been developed over a 2-3 year period for the modern match angler fishing commercial venues. As commercial angling changes, leading matchmen like Tommy Pickering and Des Shipp know the importance of having the right patterns to suit different jobs. Whether you’re summer fishing in the margins or delicate winter fishing with pellets, maggots and casters, this new range covers all of these requirements.

“The Preston range of hooks for hairrigging has never let me down”

  Tommy Pickering

Why is the PR36 so good? The out-turned eye of the PR36 has been developed to improve hooking performance when using hair-rigs, the knotless knot and small hooks (size 10 and smaller). The knotless knot is the easiest way to make a hair-rig and it produces an angle at the eye of the hook that can improve hooking performance, especially on larger hooks. But when the knot is used on smaller hooks with a straight eye, the angle is too great and this can actually impair hooking efficiency.

The point of the straight-eyed carp hook is almost at 90° to the angle of pull whereas the point of the PR36 is more in-line with the angle of pull. This is because the PR36 has a slightly out-turned eye. In fishing situations this means that when a fish picks up the bait and moves off the point is more exposed and more likely to prick the fish. Once this happens the fish bolts, or you strike, and the hook penetrates immediately.

Hair Rigging Barbless Hair Rigs are perfect for presenting a wide variety of baits.   Here’s how to mount a soft pellet.

Expertly tied straight from the packet, the hair is the correct length for a wide variety of baits.

Push a baiting needle through the pellet ready to mount on the hair. You can use the same method for boilies and sweetcorn.

Hook the baiting needle onto the loop of the hair and pull through moving the bait onto the hair.

Remove the baiting needle and insert a bait stop into hair loop. Use a bait stop that’s either clear or the same colour as the bait.

Gently ease the pellet down the hair until it sits on the bait stop. This will prevent the stop falling out on the cast.

shallow fishing

secrets

Often, it’s the warmest layer of water that produces the most fish and if you ask match carp maestro Andy Findlay where he’ll be fishing in the warmer weather   he’ll respond with one word: “shallow!” Any spate of warmer temperatures and sunshine is perfect for targeting carp up in the water, and fishing pellet shallow is one of my favourite tactics. You can often see fish cruising around and I find that keeping a constant peppering of 6mm feed pellets hitting the water; you can induce a feeding frenzy. But you do need to prime the swim first. I’ll start the area off with a big Preston Innovations Cup of pellets. In open water, I’ll feed for 30 to 60 minutes before I even put a shallow rig on. For loosefeed I use 6mm Sonubaits Fin Perfect pellets on a pole line – not many, but about five or six at a time constantly. Once you have fish feeding shallow it’s not unusual to see signs of fish feeding close to the surface but it’s worth leaving until you are confident that the fish are feeding well and are unlikely to be spooked, but there are times when it can be a technique that won’t work until the last hour, when it throws up several big fish. So the moral of the story is to keep feeding it, even if you aren’t getting bites. Rig wise, I rarely use Dibber type floats for shallow fishing now, preferring bristled floats like the Preston PB Inter 7. I tend to fish my pellet on a micro bait band which I hair rig off the back of a PR36 hook. By using a band it’s quick and easy to change the pellet using a quick bander which is

important as bites often come quickly once the bait has hit the water. If you have a wind on the water, dibbers bob up and down and can move the hookbait unnaturally, where as you can read line bites better on a bristle and adjust the depth of your rig accordingly. The wire stems make the rig more stable and cock the float immediately, which is better fishing so near to the surface. I tend to have 2ft of line between float and pole tip so I can flick the rig past the tip, so it makes a nice ‘plop’ sound. Fish love this sound. I try to feed short of my tip so that when fish come towards me, the hookbait is the first bait they encounter. I tend to use 8mm feed pellets as hookers because they weigh the same as a number 8 Stotz. I can then use the 8mm hookbait to cock the float and set my shotting pattern accordingly. It helps keep the rig really natural and it’s a positive way of fishing for proper bites. Usually when you’re shallow fishing the bites are pretty quick, so it pays to have something setup this way. Plus, if the pellet comes off for any reason, you’ll see it as the float will bob up and out of the water.

lose very few fish when using this particular pattern. I’ve tried others in the past but the way the eye on the PR 36 is turned make the hook point sit nicely which makes hooking efficient none. I’ve had weights up to and over 200lb on one hook before, which is another reason why they’re my favourites! When you can keep the same size 16 hook on the end of your rig all day that’s really saying something about the strength and reliability of what you’re using. The key with all shallow pellet fishing is to keep feeding and adjusting things till you find the winning combination. I usually set one rig up at 18ins deep and another at just 10ins deep. I can then alternate between the two to see which produces more fish. Often a quick change can bring bigger carp, so it’s always worth swapping during quieter periods. Give it a try. It’s one of the most exciting ways to fish the pole and the results can be outstanding. My personal best match weight of 288lb was caught using this method, so rule it out at your peril!

My favourite hook for this approach is a PR36 which is strong and very sharp. The open gape is ideal for shallow fishing and I find I

accesso ries The top anglers choose to use the extensive Preston Innovations range of accessories. Their tried and tested reputation means that reliability is paramount – ideal for any match situation. Our consultants demand the best which helps us to stay at the for front of modern tackle development To illustrate this we are often presented with crude home made prototypes by them which we endeavour to turn into the tackle which you see in the shops. From our range of pole pots which will accurately deliver anything from a few pellets, right up to the Kups we produce which are strong enough to deliver balls of leam and groundbait, through to our innovative new pellet feeders which have been carefully designed to solve the problems of fishing tight to island margins, all have been thoroughly tested to make sure what reaches the shops is the most complete solution to the problem we were presented with, you can rest assured that we have even more ideas under development and that this year will see further additions to our already comprehensive range.

Method Feeders Preston Innovations have taken Method Feeder fishing to new levels over recent years. The innovative Quick Release Method Mould when used in conjunction with one of our flat method feeders, makes creating the perfect loaded method feeder a simple and quick task every single time. The uniform shape created means casting accuracy is improved, and ensures that your hookbait sits exactly where you want it, right at the top of the groundbait. The comprehensive range of flat bed method feeders are available in both elasticated and in-line variations, both with a multitude of size and weight options.

Catapults Catapults are a vital component of any anglers armoury. The range of Pinpoint catapults, with their robust frames, non-tangle swivelling elastics, and multiple pouch options, cover every situation.

Shotting The revolutionary Stotz changed the way we thought about shot forever. Their unique hybrid shape was developed to improve the way shot performed when using thicker diameter lines. The increased surface area that grips the line prevents them from ‘pinging’ off. Alternatively, there is the Slip Shot range , with its dark blue PTFE coating, that reducing the damage to line when moving the shot.

kup kits Ensuring that you are completely accurate with your feeding is obviously vitally important. The Spot On range of cupping kits, as the name suggests, ensure that you are 100% spot on with your accuracy when cupping in, as they allow you to change the length of the cupping kit to perfectly match the length of your top kit. For regular feeding of smaller quantities of bait there is a huge selection of CAD Pots that have been designed to be left on the pole whilst fishing. All manufactured using top quality plastics that are reliable yet flexible enough to not damage your delicate top kits.

Preston Innovations England feeder Team

Going for gold at the world games The new Preston Innovations and Angling Trust partnership is seen as major turning point for international angling. Angling Trust are very excited to work in partnership with Preston Innovations, and this is a turning point for International angling with this very generous donation of £60,000 over the next five years. The new Feeder team will compete in the World Championships in Italy this year and will be part of the World Angling Games on 1st and 2nd September 2011 on the River Tevere in Perugia, Italy. David Preston, Managing Director, Preston Innovations Ltd “A new International competition of this magnitude is extremely exciting and it was only logical for us to be interested in sponsoring the team. “As the Number 1 match fishing brand in the UK and very much at the forefront of developments in feeder fishing, we’re well aware of the significance our involvement adds to a competition like this. Feeder fishing is a growing area of the sport in Europe and this has been something we’ve been actively promoting for several years. The coverage of the event around Europe will generate huge interest. “With Tommy Pickering leading Team England, I’m fully expecting an English victory. But win or lose, we’re positive that the event will be a global success.” Dick Clegg, OBE, International Events Manager said, “For some reason it is always difficult to find a sponsor for England’s World Championship angling teams so I was delighted that we were given the opportunity to speak to Preston Innovations regarding the new Feeder team. This new contract will help the squad to compete without any financial worries for the next five years. The new FIPSed competition will become one of the most important internationals in the world calendar, and the fact that the Angling Trust are able to send a team to represent England in the inaugural match is fantastic. Mark Lloyd, Chief Executive, Angling Trust stated “We are very grateful to Preston Innovations for their generous sponsorship of the new Angling Trust Feeder Team England. It’s great to see the tackle trade backing our boys, who will be fishing in this competition for the first time this summer. Let’s hope they bring home the medals for their

In the later part of 2011 Tommy Pickering will invite anglers along to trials he will be running so he can watch them fish and see who would be suitable to join the team and represent England in the 2012 World Feeder Championships.

country. Without any government funding for the sport, we rely entirely on sponsorship to support the costs of putting England teams into global competitions like this. I urge any companies wishing to sponsor our unsupported teams to get in touch to discuss how we could work together.” This year all England teams will be competing in Italy from 28th August - 4th September 2011 which has put some of the bigger names out of the picture already committed to fishing at other venues. Glen Lawrence, the current Barnsley Blacks Captain will be coaching this strong five man squad alongside Tommy on the River Tevere in Perugia, Italy, near the town of Todi. Tom Pickering, Manager/Captain of the Preston Innovations England Feeder Team said “ I am delighted that after weeks of deliberating and looking at anglers fishing abilities I have selected a team of anglers based on their understanding of river fishing. The river Tevere contains chub, skimmers, carasio and wild carp, and I’m happy to say that these anglers are experienced in catching all these species. Dick Clegg OBE has given his full support to the squad selected by manager Tommy Pickering. Dick said “The squad that Tom has selected is strong in all departments and I have no doubt that they will come back with a medal. This inaugural event taking place in Italy in September should see the start of another period of England dominance in world fishing. Feeder fishing originated in the British Isles and although many European countries are now having specific feeder competitions, England should be too strong for most of them. Matt Hicks, Brand Manager, and spokesperson of Preston Innovations said “We are delighted to be sponsoring a team that is made up of such successful and experienced anglers. We are confident that the partnership of a talented team such as this - combined with the support and products that Preston Innovations will provide - can result in the England Feeder team continuing the tradition of fine results on the International stage by coming home with some medals. With a little luck, hopefully they’ll be gold!”

It’s for this reason that you’ll find our logo everywhere at commercial venues, with angler’s finding our selection of luggage perfect for their angling requirements.

Over recent years the amount and type of luggage match anglers carry has changed significantly. Designed for modern match anglers using barrows and trollies to transport rods, poles, bait, reels, nets and accessory tackle. Large pole rollers, different baits, feeders and floats are all necessities we can’t be without on the bank. The solution? The Monster Luggage range.

It’s Preston’s answer to the changing demands of the modern angler. Starting from the ground up, we have designed each piece of luggage so that it can be used in varying combinations to suit individuals needs. Trollies and barrows have become far more popular since the inception of better paths around commercial fisheries. The likes of the Preston Space Shuttle allow you to take a vast range of kit to your peg. As such, the Monster Luggage range has been developed to work in conjunction with trolleys and barrows – meaning that you can quickly and easily load up your gear. In the past, anglers had to carry several carryalls, net bags, pole roller kits, tripods and so on — in addition to a seat box, rods or poles, reels, not to mention line, bait and accessories. Monster Luggage offers a stylish, simple and effective solution to this problem. The Monster Tackle and Accessory Bag and the Monster Tackle and Net Bag cater for all anglers. Easily accommodating two or more keepnets, side trays, a whole load of seat box accessories, landing nets, pole rollers and more. This ensures you’re able to get to your peg quickly – and more importantly – with all the gear you could possibly need. Also featured in the range are two versatile Feeder and Accessory Bags. Available in large or small, these stylish and practical bags enable you to quickly choose the tackle you need and get on your peg – with no messing. Firstly, there are two removable pouches which allow you separate your feeders – allowing you to grab

136  Preston Innovations Catalogue 2011

just the ones you need for a particular swim. Also supplied with the kit is a plastic box that stows neatly in the lid. This is perfect for storing a variety accessories – again allowing quick and easy access. The outside pockets are designed to fit the InBox hooklength retaining systems – these are available separately so you can choose the set-up that suits your needs. So, the Feeder and Accessory Bags are ideal if you have drawn a 14m wide peg on a snake lake – as you can leave behind that bag of heavy feeders, and just take with you what you need. The Monster Rod Holdalls really live up to their name. They have the capacity to carry all your pole fishing gear in their huge main compartments, safely protected in this superb bag. What’s most impressive, however, is the innovative outer pockets. These feature sleeves that can quickly be added and/or removed as required. Each will accommodate up to two rods per sleeve. As you’d expect, the Hardcase environment offers unparalleled protection for your valuable poles and rods. Combine this with the comfortable padded carry straps and you have the perfect rod holdall. All in all, the Monster Luggage range offers ease of use, security and flexibility. That’s why it’s used by the Match anglers at the very top of their game. The range caters for the mammoth amount of gear match anglers now need just to keep up with the competition. Try it for yourself and you’ll soon see why it’s so massively popular up and down the country.

During a break in the recent recording of the latest Winning Pegs DVD Tommy explained why luggage plays a pivotal role in his fishing. “When I’m fishing, especially in a match I can’t abide by anglers who throw their gear all over the place.” “Spending some time organising your tackle makes a massive difference. You’ll get set up sooner, and importantly, start catching sooner.” Tommy’s weapon of choice for pole and rod transport is the Hardcase Monster Holdall. “I can take up to four ready-made rods and all my pole gear in one”. Tommy’s tip is to use the two removable rod sleeves to hold two readymade rods.

all the big, bulky items I need are in there. I put two pole rollers in mine.” He often combines this with the Triple Net Bag for a complete solution. “Being able to store and carry my nets in one bag is a real advantage for me”. “The other Monster Luggage I use regularly is the Monster Feeder and Accessory Bag. I load it up the night before a match with all the feeders I might need, floats and my hooklength retainers.” Recent additions to the range have caught Tommy’s eye too. “I’ve been using the new one, with a table top built in. I really like that I’ve got a stable, flat surface on the bank”

The next favourite of Tommy’s is the Tackle and Accessory bag. “Quite simply the best piece of luggage I’ve ever used. It takes it all. I know

clothing Here at Preston Innovations, we recognise that when you go fishing, you need the right clothes for the job. That’s why the range on offer is only of the highest quality and specification. When it comes to fishing clothing there are several factors we consider before we bring any product to the market. We start with the best quality material, then carefully consider the design and styling of each piece, ensuring at each step that not only does it look good, but that it’s entirely practical to suit the demands of modern anglers. We allow extra room in underarm areas to give maximum freedom of movement when casting and moving around. Bib and braces feature elastication to make sitting down more comfortable. Key areas feature double layers of material for re-enforcement and we move the taped seams away from the areas which get most wear to prolong the life of a garment. This year we have introduced two new waterproof suit designs; the breathable DF10 suit, and the 3-in-1 Thermal suit.

The DF10 can be used with our thermal undersuits to create a versatile all-season waterproof outer layer – equally at home in the colder winter season as during the summer months. The 3-in-1 Thermal Suit has lining and also comes supplied with a smart fleece which can be worn separately, or zipped into the thermal jacked, for additional warmth during the winter period. Our range of clothing also includes t-shirts, fleeces, hats and baselayers all designed to make your time on the bank more comfortable and enjoyable. New for 2011 is a range of hoodies and t-shirts. These Limited Edition items are the latest offering from the design team at Preston Innovations. Intended to make a solid statement both on and off the bank, they certainly look fresh and new. There are three new designs, each in a variety of colours, from the established Preston blue, through bold red and neutral grey.
