All being well, this is my last day trip on here until next winter. With that in mind, I’m doing a bit of an experiment in the way I fish this swim from this bank. You can see from my results recently, that this swim has certainly produced some lovely carp. All have come from the same spot in this swim, albeit casting over from the other bank. As this is a club water, you can never rule out someone setting up opposite me when I’m casting across. Therefore, I need to understand why I’m not catching when I set up in this swim and that is why I’m here today as an experiment with my set up and positioning of my rods and bait.
I plan to try this until the afternoon and with any luck, catch a carp (or not) and then move on if possible. But after yesterday’s influx of anglers, I’m not holding my breath, currently there are only 2 of us on here.
With a couple of liners and the only swim I fancy, had just been taken, it looks like I’m in to win it in this swim. I hope it’s pays off. I’m just not a 100% confident with it at the moment, but I must stick with it and just may be the big girl comes along this margin today.
Fingers crossed for this afternoon.
It’s certainly looking like a blank today. It’s nearly time to head home and set about sorting my night fishing kit and 3 rod set up. All organized and ready for the 29th March and the start of many nights to come. Especially start on my new syndicate, which isn’t going to be easy, but I’m so looking forward to this new challenge. The Airfield Lake will still feature in my fishing this year as I really can’t keep away, its just a stunning water. It has plenty of unfinished business, so I will be splitting my fishing on both until it closes at the end of October. I then plan to spend a lot of the winter on the new water, which I have yet to give it a nickname, time will tell, what it turns out to be, all will be revealed when I finally get there.
