It was the snotty bream witch, 2:30am just after I'd finally fallen asleep after a bout of bankside Insomnia, going to be a long day today I think 

I think I am done with bream now, I would rather blank even though it was probably about 8lb+

I can never understand why anyone would purposely go out and fish for bream myself 

and to try and get 100 lb of them. 🤮

I tried to convince myself I didn't mind catching them for a while, after last night I wouldn't miss it if I never caught another one

They are just lulling you into a false sense of security, they are going to slime you baaaaad one day 

The waters I’ve fished don’t hold many so I’ve been lucky....... that’s me jinxed now but I’m still the only long term member of our club whose not caught one,and they go quite big(8lb) which is a decent size for the north west.

That's lucky I think the average is about 8lb in there and there are more than the carp, I saw them spawning there was one that was massive a big double, that may get mistaken for a small tench if I hooked it 😁

Big Dave was fishing for them today, he was chuffed he caught 3 @ 5lb each from the reservoir.

 

He now prefers the challenge of fishing for bream and roach on Alton more than carp fishing on Bromeswell.

 

I've not hooked any bream from the reservoir, yet, double 20mm boilies probably make that a tough proposition for them to pick up my bait.

 

Things I've forgotten; tackle box, more than once😖 and driven home 70miles on one occasion to collect it, bedchair

I got to the lake a few weeks ago and realised once I was there barrow loaded and in situ that I didn't have my net, I had to wheel it all back to the car load it up come home and try again, still I caught 4 fish that day in a couple of hours  so I didn't mind 😁

Some week ago I left my landing net (for fly fishing) at home. At the sunrise arrived at the lake, prepared my fly fish equipment and discovered the unique landing net Inthe car was a 42" (not good to take around a reservoir).

Imagine a fly fisherman, with a 42" landing net inside a t-shirt. That was me 😂

I’m normally quite organised gear wise,did forget my net once but was local so a mate brought his down........ my big downfall is normally food/drink. I’m terrible,Day session with matey boy and was my turn to take the food....... bacon saus egg black pud left cooker at home we ended up with crisp buttys 🙄🙄 

Kettle was one of my faves...... no kettle no brew got plenty of stick for that one.

while perch fishing a few years back left my cup at home so it was Bombay Bad Boy for breakfast and big pots of tea all day 🙄🙄🔥🔥😂😂

Pillow loads of times.

Bait on a few occasions.

Worst one was in went to my local about 5 am on a Sunday morning to find it empty , happy days.

Just setting up and I needed to go a loo so packed the stuff back in the car and made the 15 minute journey back home.

Got back , set everything up and realised I'd forgotten all my bait.

Everything back in the car etc.

Got back set everything up again , just cast out the 1st rod and the bailiff turns up and tells me the lake is shut for a club match.

Went back home and got drunk.

You're not easily put off are you , Mufty ? .

The thing I don't understand is doesn't your local have any trees and bushes tucked away , and together with a trowel you wouldn't need to go home .? .

😃

It’s like the unspoken thing of fishing. And it’s something that’s gone through my mind. I don’t night fish often atal. But most the people on here do and go to waters without toilets. But what do they do when they need a pony? 😂😂😂. I’m genuinely intrigued as one day I will face this dilemma lol. 

Bait bucket (empty ) carrier bag insterted like a bin bag and baby wipes, wrap it in a couple of scented nappy bags and tie it head height up a tree so someone walks into it 😀
