Trotting success

Just wanted to share my trotting success, have had a few barbel on the float over the years but never a multiple catch. Had x5 on the float yesterday on the Wye, all on trotted 8mm pellets under a 6g Slider float. 10lb match team line and a 14 hook, banded pellet. Feeding slow and regularly. I am so happy to experience such good sport in a truly wild environment. The float might become my first choice now, if conditions allow.
Thanks, I was not sure about trotting pellets, they seem so unnatural, but after feeding for 10 min the barbel seemed to switch on to them.
