Hemp Paste


This Hemp Paste is perfect for using on the hook or wrapping around a boilie bait or lead on the hook trotting down a stream. Oily and soft in texture and quite fine, it is easy to strike through but will hold around a bait or lead for those long casts..

Made by one of the most famous of hemp farms who specialise in hemp products for the cosmetics industry you can only begin to guess at the quality of this paste.

Due to the oily nature of the product it has a long shelf life

Trip 31 Carp Fishing- 2020


Location – Airfield Lake

Hours Fished – 65 hours

20200523_121914

I’m making the most of the wife working from home, the home schooling work is being done more or less by Thursday.  So, I get 3 days off as well as well as the kids, they just need to check if the teachers have snuck anything else on the website.  So, the Mrs gets the kids started on Friday before she gets to her work and I get to go fishing on Thursday.  So, until things get back to ‘normal’ and the wife is back in the office once again, I will be doing this.

I arrived at the lake by 1130 and there were a few people about. After talking to a couple, they had done a few nights already.  The lake had produced some carp and a fair few had been lost on the boulder, which hopefully I will not find this week.

With the winds due to push over 30 mph from the South West this weekend, conditions were looking better than last week.  I was at a bit of a loss as to where to go.  The few areas that floated my boat were already occupied.  It’s also hard to look at a lake on a hot flat calm afternoon and set up in the right spot in anticipation of the change in conditions.

By early evening the cloud had arrived and the wind was nicely pushing from the South, I was feeling the love again and felt like I had picked the right swim.

I had baited an area where I’d done well from (on occasions) in the past, however, not for some years.  I was hoping with the wind from behind me, I will be able to gain some distance in my casting and get closer to the island margins, also into a gap towards one of the sanctuary areas.

The night as always passed peaceful for me.  This morning I’ve chosen to stick a rod along the right hand margins but not very far,  I am making sure it was right at the bottom of the shelf with a lovely pva mesh bag on.  I’ve also adjusted my rods, as I like them to point at the spot I’m fishing as it gives better indication.

Also less chance of losing a rod, I’ve done that twice in all the year’s I’ve been fishing.  Not a very happy moment and even after a lot of effort, I never got them back.

The other spot I’m sticking to and have topped up with my lovely mixture of stuff.

Can’t go far wrong with that.

With yet another night on the Airfield Lake going by with no action, it’s going to start to become harder to stay positive. You just have to take the rough with the smooth on this place.  There was a removal of a lot of carp a couple of years back and the dynamic of the lake has changed.  I think I need to start treating it as though I’ve just started fishing on here for the first time and forget about past times.  These have certainly gone and the big fish hauls are not as frequent as in the past.  The ones we caught in the past have all gone and we are now fishing for a different strain (or at least carp who don’t behave in any way similar to their counterparts).

My personal belief is that the netting programme was struggling to capture anything in the past, succeeded one day to net the shoal that accounted for all the big hits over the year’s.  Don’t get me wrong, there are still plenty of carp in here.  I just have to relearn the lake, forget about past captures and areas that have produced carp for me (and other members).

I reeled in for a couple of hours, had a long walk around the complex and a brew.  I then got the rods back on onto the spots where they were going to be, both on the baited area I was building up.  With fresh wafters on, I was all set for the night.

Morning arrived sooner than expected and pack up time was on me yet again.  I would be back soon, with a new plan and full of anticipation and confidence as always.

Until next time

Stay safe

Trip 30 Crucian Fishing – 2020


Location – Icehouse Lake

Hours Fished – 5 hours

My plan this year has been to start fishing the old local lakes after Crucian carp, it’s been well over 30 year’s since I have had any.  So, with one of the lakes on the club water containing them, these lakes are generally very peaceful and free of anglers, this was going to be my starting point.

My set up was a 11 ft float rod, as I would only be fishing the margins, there are a lot of overhanging trees to contend with.  My hook bait was going to have to be corn, due to the lake containing Rudd, Roach and Carp, this means I may have to switch to bread flake or worms at some point. I would be using Sf method ready pellets, they are just so simple to use.

I arrived about 4 pm (earlier than I had planned), this gave me time for a walk around and a longer time to set up.

I picked a swim along the dam wall as this would be the deeper area, in preparation for this, I had mapped out with my Deeper.

I was soon fishing.  The Roach were certainly going to be an issue, as I managed two within the first hour!  I didn’t like the idea, but I stepped up the size of corn grains, to combat this.  This did help, but would the Crucian pick up?.

As the evening drew on, the Roach died off and the baby Tench moved in!  I was having a very enjoyable evening with the float rod and certainly made a pleasant change.

No Crucian were had unfortunately, but it was a very enjoyable evening and I will be back again next week after them.

Until next time

Stay safe

Memories of an old fisherman – Peewit Lake


I fished this lake twice over the years – with a large gap in between.  I’ve no photos of the first time around, but the lake was absolutely stunning. It still was when I arrived back the second time – until the big cut back, which was quite dramatic and put a lot of anglers off.  But not me!  This was quite fortunate as the carp didn’t know any different, it was great fishing there.  You could walk around, place your bait on the perfect spot and walk back to your rods.

T

 

The vegetation started to grow back and the anglers returned.  I moved on to Kingham next door.  Unfortunately, it got a bit silly with one angler arrive early and stick their bucket and chairs in swim to reserve swims for his mate’s, who would arrive 3 or 4 hrs later. This was the time that I headed off to fish a lovely syndicate on the Hampshire Avon for 6 years, where I hardly ever came across another angler.

Stay Safe
