It has been a few weeks since I had visited my favourite one rod snaggy margin swim.
I have had quite a few fish this swim last year at around this time. I thought that I had better not over look it.
I attached a small bag filled with crushed catalyst boilies, a few pellets and a couple of squirts of Catalyst spray. This was after I had attached it to a curved shank SF Hook and Semi stiff Fin Skin. I lowered the bag down under the bushes and sat back. I had the pleasure of watching a Osprey fishing on the lake! It was on its way down though it’s migration route.
Sometime around 1145 my rod hooped around and I was attached to a very unhappy Common Carp. After a very long battle, under the rod tip and a few attempts to evade capture, I slipped a lovely Common into the net.
Just love the Autumn colours on these carp.
Until next time
