Such a nice day The sun was out and it looked like summer is here. With the sun being so strong i made the effort to go for the last few hours on Mk.
I got up there at 3.00pm and went round to see Brownie who normally makes me a cup of tea. Just as i thought when i got to him he was fast asleep again you can put money on that he will be asleep at any time of the day. And he always Say's that he has only just been asleep for five minutes ( ya right ) Sure enough i got a cuppa tea and we sat and chatted and watched the water. The only movement we saw was the diving of coots. There is a population of about 100 of them and it makes hard work trying to watch for carp rolling.
After a hour or so chatting with my fellow tea maker and not seeing a thing i decided to fish the right hand side of the top steps. All set up and rods cast to the spots the sun slowly dropping behind me i felt that nothing was going to happen for a while till last knockings. Well seems i was right darkness came and with it being a days only water at this time of the year you have to be off the water by 8.30pm
I put the rods over the back of the chair while i packed the gear away just hoping one of the rods would rip off it's a good time just into dark but that's the time you have to be off the water :(
I can't believe what a difference this year is compared to last year the winter really has made a big change to this year's fish. This time last year i had 10 fish under my belt. But to be fair this is only the second time i have fished up there. Still plenty of time the carps need more of this nice warm sun on them get them moving a lot more burning the energy and then getting on the munch
