My car had a puncture which needed fixing first thing on the Monday morning, so I was down to only two day trips this week. This week I wanted to look at the river and I was also still after a carp from the margin swim I am a bit obsessed with. As the weather was not too hot, I found myself tucked up in there today.
I sorted out the rod, put on a 15mm natural pop up, made up a bag of chopped boilies and a mix of catalyst pellets and lowered down on to the spot.
A friendly swan called by and I sat back (and waited) and enjoyed the view.
Had few more visitors. With less than an hour before I was due to be off, I had only had a couple of Tench, this was a real pain. The wind had died down and you could feel the heat in the air , so could the carp. More and more of them were cruising around on the top.
Think I will be on the river for my next trip, hunting for the Carp as part of my quest to bag a lump from the Hampshire Avon.
Until next time
