After doing a few hours this morning and a look around on a swim that felt fishy. I was back and setting up in the dark. There was just enough time to flick the rod’s out, I had clipped up before I was off earlier today, on a couple of nice spots.
The rest of the kit was set up in the darkness. I was not going to put out any freebies and just use a washed out Poloni pop ups, one white & one yellow.
Both dipped in The Juice.
Around 1 am the yellow pop up rod was off with my first Airfield lake carp of 2016.
19lb 8oz Common with a big tail to give me an amazing fight.
My set up don’t look to bad in the morning.
Dispite the darkness, it was a quite organised. After some 30+ year’s of setting up in the dark over the Winter months, it has become second nature.
Perfect view from the bivvy this morning across a small part of this lovely lake.
At around 10am, I recast the rod’s for the last 2 hour’s in the hope of another take, unfortunately not to be .
Until next time
