On the bank yet again, that’s twice this week! As Christmas is fast approaching, I have only got 2 more trips planned and that will be that for 2014.
For some reason or another, my fishing year runs the same as a normal year. I know some anglers who run their year from one season to the next. I have always done my year with the ‘normal’ one, even before the whole fishing year was opened up. I think it’s to do with me always writing things in a dairy and as I always got one for Christmas, my fishing year started in January.
Just made it down for last light and with a quick look round (to see if I could spot any fishy signs). There are no real signs, but for some reason I have settled on the reeds at the top of the lake. It just felt warmer up there sheltered from this bitter cold north wind, which has been blowing for the last couple of days.
Same set up as the past few weeks. One rod on the reeds and the other under a margin bush.
We will see what the night brings.
Unfortunately, this lake had got harder over the years I have fished winters on here. However, the fish have got bigger and as they say, more effort equals more rewards. Bring it on (a nice big fat common).
Just another good nights sleep.
Till next time
