Session done. Lost a rare common, landed a stocky, then came this at 26.02lb

then I lost one this morning but the sinking feeling was washed away by this at 23.06, down from when I caught it end of March.

8 bites, landing 5 of them in the last 24hours. That’s as many fish that the lake has done since November! Mega happy with that little session. Even managed to get one whilst the boy was with me for a couple of hours

Managed a couple of fish over the weekend. Was hard work if I'm honest as the fish kept following the wind and seeing that the wind went full circle from a south westerly on Thursday then going westerly,  North westerly on Friday ,  northerly, easterly and South easterly on Saturday and back to South westerly this morning.  I moved a total of 7 times but got my rewards. First was a 30lb 05 Oz mirror which I stalked from a rod length out Friday afternoon then later that evening a 33lb 15oz. 

I also managed one after work on Tuesday. This came a day before the mini heatwave.  29lb 01oz.

The fish are nice, but I’m more impressed with the beard growth! From barely there stubble to full growth in 4 days!
