I arrived at my normal time on a Sunday afternoon and there where only three other angler’s on the lake. After a chat and a walk around, I settled on a nice quiet corner of the lake.
With a few pouch fulls of Catalyst pellets and boilies, I was all set for an afternoon of observation, as this swim has a great all round view.
I sat back, had a brew and some cake.
The afternoon and evening where very quiet, much to my surprise.
At around 4 am, the righthand rod was off, with a few bleeps and the rod tip was pulling. I picked the rod up, at first I thought it was a bream, until the fish woke up and after quite a hard fight, a lovely Common was in the net.
A lovely looking 25lb 14oz common.
For the rest of the morning, I lay in my bag and watch the dawn slowly arrive, on what was going to be another sunny October day.
Until next time
