I didn’t think I would make it out this week, we are off on our annual two week’s family holiday. The weather was also looking rubbish for fishing. After getting a text from a friend, saying he was down the lake for a couple of nights and if I fancied a social. After checking the weather again and finding that a rain front was pushing though overnight. I thought that it must be worth a go. Most of the packing was done for our walking adventure in the lake district, which included a fair few trips to Go Outdoors, to kit out the kid’s.
I found myself set up and feeling very confident with my spot. My friend had already bagged a carp in the afternoon, the weather front was clearly on its way.
I woke up to a couple of of bleeps around 0230, I sat up for a bit listening to the odd fish top. I even spotted the odd one close to my baited area and fell back to sleep thinking one of my rod’s will be away soon.
Well, to say I was shocked to wake up to the alarm clock at 6 am was an understatement.
Oh well. As I now have a couple of weeks away, I would not be back on the lakes until September. I just love that time of year and leading on to October.
Until them, be lucky
