    That’s sounds like a lot of work.

    I wish it were that simple mate! I’ve got to render the back of the house, the bitumen paint is for the bay window roof and the kitchen roof (an extension) needs to be completely stripped and the felt replaced... then it’s repaint the exterior front and back, then redecorate the entire interior which has just been replastered throughout. I’ve done a new kitchen and bathroom so it’s bringing it all together now.

    Just got back from a 24 hour session at Willow Bank at Todber Manor. To say it was cold last night was an understatement, my mates carp drenching bucket was frozen solid. Did have a 10lb'er at a quarter past 4 this morning which was more than welcome as I've been a good boy and observed the no traveling rule and so the first fish in 6 months.

    It got the same build quality as the 8k, il use it on my floater rod as well. 
    I got the 8k for the big spool and the great line which will help get them extra yards 
    I had a set of the 1st cross casts out and the 8k is a much better reel in my opinion.

    I'm getting there slowly 😂 
    They do look nice though, I've been wanting new reels for ages, I kept looking at aerlex, speedmaster and crosscasts etc and thinking they are nice but they don't have all the features, these ones did so I took a leap of faith and hopefully I got it right 🙏👍

    If I’m going for a floater session I put the krill floaters in a container add a little oil then some of the Active mix, gets a bit messy but gets them going and they never leave your swim.

    Well apart from having a nice couple of days, I didn't catch anything, what did I learn, not a lot really,there is a lot of low lying weed so chods or zigs were probably the ones probably zigs for the conditions tbh, my reels sound like they are dying, I don't think the fish were anywhere near where I thought and are probably hiding out beyond the flooded area,behind the islands they have a lot of hiding places at present even more so than usual, I tried but I think I've possibly started something to continue with so well call it a stepping stone session, was nice to be out though, even though I had to change from thermals to shorts and t shirt today 😁

    The lake had been frozen the week before we got there. We got a agreement if one gets a fish the other can cast into the area where he had it, so that’s six rods roving about it has worked twice over the years, only in the winter tho. 
    I would rather be fishing than in bed

    It's been glorious today, my skin doesn't know whether to be sunburnt or frostbitten, no carp still had a walk around saw nothing, I would have thought they might have got moving a bit today but nothing showing, the sun has been on this zone all day, all I 2ant is a sign 🤘
