I have had a double bonus this weekend, as the mother-in-law has offered to take the kid’s to school Monday morning and the wife agreed to me also doing Saturday night, wow thanks folks.
I have settled for a swim that I have not fished before, as the big strong S/W wind have stopped blowing for the last three days and the hot swims are still not free and I would have thought the fish would have moved out of that area by now. This swim give me access to an area of open water that can only be fished from here, the down side is I am on the south bank and the North / North easterly wind is pushing this way, however still very warm for this time of the year, so I am feeling very confident.
The righthand rod was lowered under the overhanging tree, which I will move out a bit at night, ,for the safety of the fish.
The left rod is fished this side of a gravel bar just on the bottom of the slop where the silt starts.
I have balled up 8 balls which I will put in the spomb with a handful of 14mm poloni boilies.
My latest toy is a boilies chopper.
I will do a review once I have tested it for a month. Bung a hand full of boilies wind the handle, job done.
Both rod’s have poloni pop ups on with mimicker leadcore leader.
Time to sit back and have a brew.
The first night pasted with only a couple of tench on the margin rod and no action on the distance rod, other than a few bleeps.
Conditions are still looking favorable and I am going to sit today out here, I have topped the swim up with more groundbait and broken boilies.
And we will see what today brings.
Nice flat spot let’s hope it’s the carp and not the bream.
With the departure of all the other angler’s by Sunday lunchtime, I was feeling more confident, unfortunately all that happened was the bream moved in and no sleep was had until 0230 ish, joy.
Morning alarm and time to head home.
Until next time
