It’s my first outing on my new water and I have not set foot on the lake for over 7 years. It was then a day ticket/club water and you could not move for people. It is a bit busy today as we have all come out for a look around, it’s nice that everyone is so friendly.
I am going to take today as it comes, I may or may not move swim, I may move across to the other lake.
I have started in a quiet area, the is a very strong north wind. I am hoping that the sun comes out and warms up the margin areas on the back of the wind.
Just fishing small pop ups with tiny bags.
I have moved one if my rod’s to just under this overhanging tree. I had scattered some boillies when I first got here.
Unfortunately, the sun disappeared and the wind picked up and my confidence dropped. I had been thinking that, if this happened, I would move to the other lake. Which would be more sheltered.
My rod’s are cast one under an overhanging tree and the other across to the far margin.
I had changed one rod over to a bottom bait, as I had done well in the past on here with them.
My plan was to stay until 6pm just after dark. However, by 5pm my feet were really getting cold. Ever since I was a kid pike fishing, we use to wear welly boots and go home once we could not bear the pain of cold feet.
I am sure I did some damage back then and I have never been able to find a way to keep my feet warm. I did spend a £125 on some Bafflin boots that should keep you feet warm down to -40. Not my feet.
I made it 6pm, however still blanked
Till next time
