After being in the right swim the other night – but not being able to put a bait where it needed to be. This was because of the fish’s well fare. If I had put my bait where I have done today, there would be now way of getting the fish in, unless I was sitting next to my rods and locked up tight. I believe, it should not be fish at all costs and we need to look after the welfare our prey and no scars or ripping mouths.
So, today I am sitting in the water, next to my rod and hopefully the carp will still be in this area. The wind has changed around and the temperature has dropped, however there is a bit of rain & cloud about.
With only one rod and 4 hrs to fish. I tend to find this more productive and when fishing the margins, you do need a bit more room to get the fight under control. All I have done is flicked a single natural pop out with a small Stix Mix bag, sprayed with catalyst Booster Spray and a small handful of chopped Catalyst boilies.
Despite the odd carp topping close by, I just couldn’t tempt them today.
Until next time
