Well done all 😎

I blanked 🙈 Had one of those sessions that anything that could go wrong did lol . Just hope that's out the way in readiness for France.  Did manage 2 bites on last morning after working hard for a few days,  only to get cut off with the first one & got done with a drop back bite on the second right on last knockings.... just to rub in lol .

Still had a great time with good friends though & a much needed chill out

It's been a learning curve and Ive learnt a lot from it and I think things have changed since I was last fishing tbh, I never even worried about otters before,but I do think there visits play a part in fishes behavior and that has added to the pressure for me also as every little difference must make them nervous as hell, also with 2 little ones at home I don't really have time to be a bivvy tramp and I think that would be the way to do it,

I think I want a reasonably stocked lake say 50-100 fish with a fence that's still a challenge but one where I have a chance if I work hard at it, we shall see what turns up 

It's tough fishing waters getting ottered mate ,been there & got the t-shirt nothing left in any of them now.  Move on , take it from me it only gets tougher & tougher & I'm not just talking the fishing .... it fry's your brain in lots of ways 🤯 watching a lake die off is not a good thing for us anglers & leaves a hollow feeling when it's been part of your angling for years . This was a peach of a common & before I had gone grey lol looking at the photo

What were the pre tied rigs made of? Cotton? Lol. Mate if they were snapping it must of been very light line or braid. You can play carp them sizes on two pound line if your sensible 

wasn't the line that gave it was the hooks pretty much straightened

If i was to buy pre tied, i would go with a reliable source.ie, Angling Direct, Total Fishing Tackle...a known supplier.

lesson learned.. luckily  I did have a couple from AD in my case the others will have the hooks changed I think

Least it didn’t snap and get stuck in the fish’ mouth. Fox, Chub, Korda, drennan all make pre tied. I use them sometimes much to the dismay of these lot in here probably. 😂. Never had one let me down. 

the one good thing about it..yeah think i'll be sticking to the good ones for now

Please put them in the Bin, I meant! 😉

Got to agree with you here mate bin them and buy some made by a reputable company and once you've bought some and if you feel confident enough buy some components and copy them. 👍👍

Nice common from a morning session yesterday.

Nice chunky common mate.

Big blank for me. Normally the lake I fish, you get big shows early morning,  i was glued to the lake and didn't see a single fish show in the 2 nights. Not a good sign after the water tests we had done shined a light on an issue. Hope the water quality recovers quickly.  Still I've got a week down the coast next week and after this weeks big winds I might be a bit luckier.

Well done Yonny Inspiring stuff and a couple of nice short session bangers and well done everyone else this month, 

Just going back to my recent loss of faith and wobbles I think I've decided to get back on with it now, I think sharing my thoughts with you guys has helped make it less foggy, I know it's going to be tough but until April I have a ticket that should still give me a chance to get it right once i hope and that you as always my intention for this year, next year I will see what's available Ive been putting my name down on a few places so will see where I end up then , 

Thanks all

Carp fishing is a simple game and it's easy to forget that. Remember, all you need to do is find fish and present a bait to them. If you can do that, anything is possible. When you're back on the hard lake you must analyse what you're doing. Picking a swim and sitting in it with the rods out is not enough. Spend your time looking, searching, watching. At some point the carp will tell you where you need to be. Once you know that the battle is half won👍🐋

It's quite funny how complicated you can make carp fishing sometimes isn't it, when I first started many moons ago, I learnt how to pretty much catch the big ones from small ponds and in the end found it easy as abc, when I've had a couple of hours on the club lake Ive done exactly that and caught conconsistently but I think I've been making things way too complex elsewhere , it's only an 8 acre pond isn't it  😏
