Cracking rudd!  Nice waggler! Loaded? Going by light shotting. Do you make them? We used to use banded antenna/insert wag like that years ago for crusian carp fishing. Fella in the midlands used to make them for us. Found small shoal of very special rudd in local pool on farm earlier this year after finding huge fish dieing in margins. took it home and weighed it. Went 2.14lb sporn bound and a true rudd! At least a couple of them look bigger. been surface feeding them but not tried for them yet.   NB

The Waggler is not loaded but  bulk shot near the float, then a light shotting pattern of 4s and 6s. the lake I fished is well known for its large Rudd club record is 3lb4oz (Stonar lake near sandwich Kent). the lake is 50ft deep in places, and because of its close proximity to the sea it has a high salinity, there are flounders present that got in there when the Stour flooded years ago.

I got a handmade float from a guy a couple of years ago, and copied it, the stem is sarkand reed and the insert is a kebab skewer. far better than the plastic ones, adds more casting weight.
