Anyone angling this weekend?

Canals/rivers near me are a pain to fish because the very best areas are all "no fishing". Angry face.

it will be playing second fiddle to suffix Synergy though , unless it really does cast well .

It'll not outcast the Synergy mate, while it casts ok (miles better than any other snag line) it is still a snag line.

Going tomorrow eve after work.

Finally got some proper low pressure and some rain.

As the lake in question is actually a drain it normally fishes better just after of during rain.

On the bank now, full of cold. Got here at 3:30 first time I have put my rods out where I can see where they land. Just managed a 6,10lb tench my first fish from this lake so I'm chuffed. Had an occurance on my other rod where the bobbin went right up, then bobbed a bit, I hit it without looking at the tip or anything as I was still full of adrenaline from the last run! Fools mistake.

Went out with my daughter yesterday despite the weather forecast of high winds. It wasn't too bad as the swim we were in was pretty well sheltered, but still no luck. 5th session on the trot without so much as a bleep. Beginning to realise now why I don't particularly like winter fishing.

A guy turned up as we were packing up in the peeing rain, setting up for a 48. Respect. Not for me. 14 hours of darkness a night at this time of year in the freezing cold and wet is not my idea of fun. Much prefer 5 or 6 hours of darkness during June/July.

Yes mate, came to the same conclusion years ago, only pike and chub with a rare fly expedition grace my winters these days, prefer to be mobile and warm.

Before we got blown off the lake this evening...

26890305cbd0b010299350cf20504089_zpsiq4m

Fishing, coffee, and Sky.

This evening around 9.30 gale force winds blew the bivvy inside out, blew the rods off the rests, and scared the hell out of Sky and me as I had to chase the bivvy down the bank to catch up with it.
Packed up in the dark, and drove back to Ipswich. Even that wasn't easy as the A120 was closed between Braintree and Marks Tey, so came back via The Colnes before joining the A12 at Colchester.

Got to the lake at 8.45am this morning. Put the rods out and 4 spods over the top of them. Started setting the new TITAN up for the first time and one of the rods was away at 9.20am. A lovely start to the day.

Hi Nick

Sorry to read about your woes .

Is your Bivvy damaged again ? .

We didn't have any gales on the coast  in Suffolk , you must have had rotten luck . :(

The A120 has been closed for me before - coming back from Stansted Airport and just wanting to get home .

It's good to see Sky is watching intently for any bites .

:)

Not fishing g at the mo but have been putting a few handfuls of bait onto a few spots as well as a good spread on a lake I shouldn't... :wink:

He who dares Rodders!

Also, I've been feature finding on a lake that doesn't seem to hold much, if anything at all but could be worth a super secret ninja session.

The wire holding the spokes in place snapped again. It's whether I can be bothered to repair it again. It takes about 2 hours to to as I have to snip the second wire on the arm, take the spokes out of the holders at the outside, and put them back in the right order (4 spokes have storm pole attachments), then rewire it in order one by one.

 

It is a pain in the rectum!

Well you regularly use your Bivvy , so why not treat yourself to a new one .

Then you could repair your damaged Bivvy at your leisure and carry it as a spare ? .

Had a great day despite blanking. But we both couldn't help thinking "roll on Summer!!"

Looking forward to starting tomorrow. Fingers crossed and thanks for the comment.
