With half term under way and the Mother-in-law kindly offering to look after the girls for a few days. I had originally thought to do a couple of nights going after Pike and I very nearly did. However, after some thought and looking at the weather and the work load building up on my website.
I opted to stay at home and catch up. This also gave me the opportunity to sort the Carp kit out for the Spring and after winning the Fishtec photo competition, I could transfer some bits to my new TF Gear Hardcore Packaway Mat. I am going to be using this for my one rod day sessions. I really need to cut down on my tackle for these trips. Away with the work and kit all sorted, I had a spare day before collecting the kid’s. I probably should be Pike fishing, however I have packed that all back in the loft. As I had thought that my time had past this year. So, here we are on the bank after Carp, on a cold but sunny Winter’s day and on the smaller lake on the complex, I was feeling the need for a Winter’s Carp. With only a sort time left and the main lake looked pretty bleak, I also had the urge to test out my new TF Gear DL Black Edition Big Pit Reel, this was the lake to be on.
My new set up looks quite nice, new reels and Summit Tackle stainless & bobbins, it’s been a few years, so I thought I would treat myself.
Unfortunately, by 1230 and only a couple of beeps, it was time to head home.
Until next time
