As the week went on the bites slowed up which was good because it was giving me and martin time out to have socials with the other two Andy and Merv had had a steady week with Merv catching most of his fish at night.
As with every trip friday is always the downer because the week is nearly over so packing away stuff you wont be needing making it easier in the morning rush to get off the lake before the new lads take over for there week. With stuff packed and tea out of the way me and martin have a chat about how the week went for us all in all it was a great week with a new pb under my belt and martin having a cracking stalked fish yes it had been a really good trip. But it was not over yet not till 10.00 am we still had the night to go. It was 8.00am Saturday morning when the middle rod burst into life an uneventful fight and a big mirror was netted All that noise of the buzzer never woke martin i had to get him up to do the photo's
This was to be the last fish of the week leaving the rods till the very last second before breaking them down and putting them away in the back of the van for the long ride home back to Grantham which none of us was looking forward too. We said our goodbye's to our host's and wish them luck as this was there 1st year at being the owner's of the lake.
This was it i took my last look at the lake as we drove up the lane to the main road and said farewell as it was the last time i will be fishing in France (unless i win the lottery ) yes i was sad and on the way back martin noted that i was silent for the first hour as i was deep in thought on the past trips i had done over the years from the very first time 18years ago to Les quis to the great trips to suvjia the home of 40lb carp.
Now it was time to move on its still only the start of june and the new syndicate ticket has just started so was so looking forward for the challenge ahead another water in the nene valley in search of the nene water pigs
My next blog will be about how i tackle what has been the hardiest water's i have fished in 30 years of carping
Till next time
