Before you posted that I didn't know nases existed. Every day is an education :-).Been out a couple of times over the last few days. First time to a Leamington Anglers reservoir where I set up a carp rod as well as my little fish float rod and surprised myself by catching an 8lbs 6oz grass carp, a new species for me and, by default therefore, a personal best. My chips were well and truly pissed on when the bailiff came round though;
Baillff - You caught anything ?
Me - yes, a grass carp 8lbs 6 oz
Bailiff - Didn't know there were any that small in here !I
Next stop was the Shropshire Union where we caught lots of fish but nothing over half a pound and most around 3 or 4 ounces. However, I caught one fish we had no idea what it was. A fish\dace type thing with outsized, low-set eyes. After circulating a picture, one of the lads recognised it as a nase. Another first and personal best (2 ounces).
I'm thinking of setting up a specialist group for anyone who has now caught a vendace, grass-carp and nase.
Fish it lime any commercial pal. A mate fishes it regularly usually on a pole, Waggler rod or small method feeder. I think most baits will work and I think it's fairly easy to catch. I'm sure a local or two will put you right though.going to moss farm tomorrow for the 1st time. any advice or do i just fish like a normal commercial?
