My trip last night ended in an epic fail! I just can’t help but tell you.
The wife was home earlier than normal but still dark. So I was off down the lake quicker than a whippet out of a trap. I was going to an area I fancied fishing for some time. I parked up and wheelbarrow-ed the kit round to the swim and started setting up. Where in god’s green earth (or words to that effect) was the landing net? Yep, I had done it again, this time the tackle shop was closed. There was no other option other than go home, with a sad face 😦 . I did put out what bait I had into the swim. And here I am again, all tackle present and correct!
With a couple of bags done, a pop up on one rod and a bottom bait on the other rod. With a quick under arm flick the baits were out this time.
I am only going for a few hours tonight, so we shall have to see. It’s a bit of a theory I have (which was proven right the other year) but thought I would give it a go again this year. I have previously tried in the day time to great success, just never after dark.
Unfortunately, no joy tonight but definitely learning a new area/swim.
Until next time
