    I find the wettest rain is a fine mist rain especially if you’re using a brolly... if that makes any sense

    A late start for me this year after the winter lockdown and starting a new job in March. Hard to believe it is May before I have had the chance to get the rods out!
    I had the lake to myself and so, I perched up in a corner swim with a South Westerly rippling in. It was mild and drizzly and looked ripe for a bite after a few shows in the area but alas, the weather changed during the night and the bobbins remained motionless.
    Brew in hand, I watched the water intently as the morning broke and there seemed to be some activity a little further up the lake. Half an hour of watching gave me all the signs I needed and the rods were soon wound in, a fresh rig tied and with just a rod, net, mat and a pocket full of bait, I made my way around to the other side of the lake.
    Creeping up to the margins, the morning sun warmed my back and I gently lowered my rig onto the spot a few feet from the bank between two overhanging bushes. The lead went down with a crack and once I was happy my rig was presented, I sat well back and waited. I didn't need to wait long as less than 10 minutes later, the rod tip jerked, and then again before the clutch ripped off just as I was grabbing the rod. 
    After a short but powerful battle, I netted my first fish of the year and while it was one of the lake's smaller residents, it was a pristine spring fish made all the more special by catching it in my favourite way. A great (if a little late) start to the year.

    My share of today's earnings are going towards my syndicate ticket renewal, but that's probably my fishing budget blown for the month so no toys for me 😂

    I like the headlight position, it's raised so should give good visual at night and it's so small and light.
    The proof will be tomorrow when I try it out on water.

    Got out for a bit last week and struggled for the most part with the carp showing way out of range but did manage this old original common to save a blank.
