What a good weekend i had. Started friday night when i got down to welly with only a few swims left i choose to fish one called the "Channel" all the rods went in nice and easy and it was then the waiting started. Tone had come down for the weekend and was set up in the end swim called "The Lock" It was saturday morning before any thing happened and the first one of the trip But sadly the hook pulled and i lost it That's two lost fish in as many weeks now i checked the hook and it seemed sharp to me i just put it down to one of them thing's. A few hours passed when i had another run which went very smooth and soon a cracking looking mirror was laid in the net. It went on the scales at 27-04 I was very pleased and my brother did the honour's with the camera
As the day went on the fish in my swim was getting very active with lots of head and shoulder's and rolling fish popping out every few minutes Trouble was they was more interested in a fly hatch more than a boilie all i could do was sit there and watch the show.
Nothing happened for the rest of the day and i settled in for the night. The wind had dropped to a nice clam blow and it was not as cold. At 4.00am i had a screaming take which woke me i hit into the run the fish kited to my right making its way down the lake. When it happened again another bloody hook pull. After re-baiting and a recast i was soon back in the sleeping bag next thing i new was it was 8.00am when the right hand rod was away I was in again and the hook held so after a brief battle. Tone slipped the net under a nice looking 18lb common I did take a photo but made a mess of the self take 's
This week i brought some bankstick stabiliser's from a company called Defiant mps I can highly recommend this company for all your stainless steel banksticks and there hanger's are the mutt's nuts. Check them out
