So it does work i had 3 more over the next hour and a half they was having it just below the surface in the middle of winter on a small piece of rubber how mad is that. Something that i just cant get my head round how a carp can eat something that does not smell of anything we will never really understand i don't think.
Like i say that was back in winter over christmas and while i was there i kept an eye on what was happening on the main lake the lake that i would have to wait till june to fish with only one angler fishing it over the festive period it still looked good and i could not wait to wet a line in with so many big fish in it up to 41lb
This is a small video of the 30lb mirror i had out of the small lake at the time a winter 30lb in all its colour's
I like to write my blog a few weeks in advance and already had this next section written and was ready to post But i am very sad to say that i had the sad news That Malcolm Grice passed away 28/07/12.
He had been ill for a few months and my thoughts go out to his family.
I first met Malcolm last year when i had added him to my facebook friends list he posted up that he was down Little Irchester for the weekend and i told him if he wanted me to photo the big one then i would be in the bungalow swim. At 5,30am Saturday morning Malc came bounding into my swim shaking my hand and at the same time he is asking me to take photo's of the one they call cut tail the biggest common on the complex at 45lb That was unreal first night on the lake and malcolm had had his target fish. Now you may be reading this think that was luck or just a jammy bugger. But let me tell you that malcolm due to work and other commitments could not get back down the lake for 10 days. Again i was down there and 11.30pm malcolm's come round to my swim asking if i would take more photos of cut tail he had only gone and had it again this time on a zig. So you see malcolm was not just your average carp angler he was a bit more than that he had had some big fish over his life time The fat lady being one of them. The last time i saw and spoke to him was back in march when i took some snaps for him of a 20lb common i will never forget him and i am pleased our paths crossed R I P Malcom Grice a true Gentleman
Here is a video of Malcolm when he had cut tail the 1st time on a rig that he loves to use the chod.
