It has been a bit too long between trips, I had a very ill daughter for a week and I then managed to pick up the flu again, which finished me off for another week. Last week, I had family stuff to do. I was going regardless of the weather, the god of fishing was not listening to this and the weather took a noise dive!
Effort = reward as they say. Luckily I had the chance to drive around mid morning today, so I had a good look and a chat if anyone was about. There was not a soul who was crazy enough. I had decided on the bank I needed to fish based on the wind direction. This gave me plenty of swims to choose from when I got back around 7 pm.
Morning arrived, with no action in the night. I set about positioning the rods for the next 24 hours. After markering around for just under an hour, I was happy with two spots, they were quite close to each other but at varying depths.
This will hopefully attracted a carp into picking up my hook bait – a FW medical berry wafter with a washed out maggot cluster. The other rod has a Masala Pops ups pop up on, I am going for a bit of colour this weekend and I have also Spombed out a small amount of Spotted Fin new particle range.
With that combination I am hoping to tempt a fish or two. I even got a bit of sunshine!
Was hoping for a bit more to warm up the tree line this afternoon.
With no joy over night it was time for a wet pack up.
No carp this time out but it was very nice to be back on the bank again.
Until next time
