Right guys thought I may do a little blog of my session today 

The car is packed and ready, just waiting baton in hand to pass it on to Mrs Putney then I can hit the road , need to stop off for milk and possibly a McDonald's on the way but its looking like I should be there for midday to see what is in store

swim wise its now in the lap of the carp gods as to who is already there, hoping to have the place to myself tonight but depends on day anglers and I'm not sure if there is 1 other booked on or not, looks pretty good conditions for this new moon night out,other than a little too much wind lol, got the overwrap cos it looks like it may get cold ish overnight but I'm pretty confident and fairly well prepped and organised, got 6 pva bags loaded and ready to rock clip em up, tie em up, chuck em out maybe a couple of spods over the top, get a bite oooosh, that's the plan 😂😁

I am really excited the way you should be before a session I think 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞😁

Bunker on the spit up the road, could say its muddy 😁

Been an enjoyable afternoon, managed to leave my back door keys in my pocket so had to go home again , but that may be a blessing in disguise as I've moved in next to someone who caught 3 so hopefully I can get one nice fish to 😁

Still messing about but there is a chance and I'm looking forward to the night ahead 👍

Just a shame about the mud , but thats winter for you ,  if you can find some piles leaves gather them up and put in front your bivvy , really does work well ,

OH and dont slip in during the night , not good form 😁

That's a good idea might try that Thanks

Photos haven't come out the best unfortunately had a bit of a battle with the fish and the intervalometer, shame it was a real character with big boggly eyes,
