With all that rain (yes, no snow down South), I thought the river would be very murky and on the drop, it would be a great opportunity for a pike or two. It was a lovely winter’s morning.
I headed for one of my favourite areas, as it gives me the option of a lot of spots and is not too far to walk. I only have a limited amount of time and with no joy in the first swim I was on the move.
The second spot is in the Weir pool, which I have yet to catch a pike from. Today could be my opportunity. I certainly need to find a swim with some sunshine, it’s pretty nippy out here.
With no joy, I was on the move again. The weather has been so mild until very recently the river has been very low and with no real floods, there is still a lot of vegetation about. This is clogging up my normal spots, which is a shame. So far, not even a sign of a pike.
I moved again and may be this time, there is a bit of sunshine about.
It was nice to get back on the bank after recent events but of a shame there was no pike today. It was good to be out in the fresh air again.
Until next time
