With the school holidays in full swing, I was very lucky to be able to fit another night in this week. This is all down to my dad coming down for a week to look after the kids when I was out gardening. The weather was so hot, he stayed for another week!
The big carp hunting is proving very hard on the airfield lake this year (as you may have noticed) but I just have to keep on going. I will never catch them sitting at home or on another lake. They’re certainly here, I just need to find them – this is proving hard. It’s not helped by the whole of the west bank is out of bounds and a fair few other areas. That said, this is why I love the place, wild, open and peaceful, as a fair few syndicate members can’t get on with the place.
With the wind still nicely pushing from the south, I headed off to the daisy field swim. I soon spotted a few nice fish showing. Now to get the baits out without disturbing them – not a simple task on here and only time will tell. With only 4 spombs of SF hemp, tiger and a small bag with a 15mm Catalyst wafter with an Evo maggot cluster.
I was all set with the Nsr 50 in the water, unhooking mat and water all laid out ready. It was time for some tea.
At around midnight, the left-hand rod belted off and I was attached to a 10lber, it was an ok start but turned out to be my only fish of the night.
Until next time
