I am currently a Bailiff at Three Lakes Angling in Boreham where I have fished for the last 5 seasons, banking all the known big fish. I have used Crafty Catcher baits for several years now and have seen massive improvements in the quality of my catches with both catch rates and the weights on the up. Current favourite bait is the King Prawn from the Retro range. Simply the best food bait I have ever seen with full approval from plenty of chunks I have put on the bank too.
