This trip out is going to be a nice change for me, it’s a social with a friend. We are on the Airfield Lake and have picked a nice double swim. This gives us access to a huge amount of water and an array of features. With the wind direction (moving round to the north), this will be a perfect area for a couple of nights.
With camp set up, the spots baited up its time for a glass or two of wine and a chat.
The night was a complete surprise, with not a single carp between us. As the morning progressed, there were a few signs of Carp but nowhere near the amount there was when we arrived.
With a sunny day forecast, we were hoping that the Carp would move into the back of the cold north wind and back into our part of the lake.
As another day drew to a close with another stunning sunset (in between the passing heavy rain storm). We were both beginning to think that the weather was playing a key factor in the lack of Carp. In the early evening, there where a few more fish topping just out of our range and maybe some hope for the coming night!
We shall have to see.
Well, that night did not go my way at all. I managed to lose two fish, on the lovely boulders of the airfield. My friend had more luck – he managed to bank a nice Common.
However, I was rewarded with the chance to get the perfect kingfisher shot.
So, I am not going to complain. It takes a life time of trying and thus one of many photos I took this morning, will do me just fine.
That was all the action we had. The time was past in great company and we had a few laughs. I also certainly learnt that, a sudden drop in temperature, with all the hail on Friday does effect the Carp and its all about learning.
Until Next Time
