Back out for the night 


Done the househusband bit and back down the lake for the night and the conditions are looking good.

Back In My Favourite Margin Spot


Back in my favourite margin spots 

I just love this swim, lower the bait down and wait for the addrenaelin rush.

Much Cooler Out Here


With the temperatures getting down to something a bit more manageable and a nice S/W in am back on the back again. 

Lets hope the fish are also feeling the love.

Trip 51 Carp Fishing- 2017


  • This trip is the start of my campaign to catch a nice big lump out of the Hampshire Avon.  With this in mind, I headed to the area where I have seen them before and have tried this area a few times before (without a great deal of success), location appears not to be the issue for me, it’s finding their feeding spots and their everyday patrol route.  This is time consuming and I clearly need to put more effort into that part of the challenge. The section I found them in regularly is about 200 meters long and consists of many features; form pads, reed, wide open areas and plenty of weed.It’s certainly going to be a challenge and I also can’t ignore other stretches of the river.  As it’s the 16th June, it would be rude not to wet a line today.

I tried a couple of likely spots on the way back down river.  I had put some bait out on the way up stream, other than one Carp, load of face and a couple of Chub that’s all I spotted.  However, I did find some very interesting areas that need further investigation.

I will be back soon for another look around.

Until next time

Trip 50 – Carp Fishing- 2017


After a few very hard days out gardening, I was glad to get down the lake and find a nice cool breeze blowing.  I was not really sure where to fish, even after a good look round the complex, there were fish in most area’s of the lake and I was unable to pin point any of the larger fish.

I ended up settling for this swim, I just felt the love for it a bit more than any other.

With a couple of spots sorted out, a few pouches of Catalyst boilies and a bag over the top with a FW Masala Pops ups on both rod’s.  I am starting to get very hooked on these FW pop ups as they have done me good on a couple of 30’s and under 20’s this year.

Unfortunately, the night resulted in one lost fish which made it to the margin trees and dumped the hook.

Until next time
