Default How did you get on?

Saturday I fished at Slough house fishery in Essex. A silvers only match.
Couldn't help catching bloody carps... 8 silvers pole rigs mullered.
Ended up with 5lb 5. of skimmers and roach.
Winner had 54 lb. Some good back up weights too.
23 fished.


Slighty less frustrating today at Milton pools near Oxford. Waggler and maggot shallow (3 ft ) in 5ft of water. Small Carps, roach, skimbobs, tench and crucians for 12lb 8. 65lb won.
19 fished..
The weather was nice but the wind made things tricky.

True to form the roach failed to show but one carp landed and, unfortunately, one lost!

Fished a still slightly high still water sitting well back with nothing of the rod over the water. Maggots should have worked but didn't although a change to bread flake on a 14 worked immediately.
The same bait worked again after an hour but because I use it slow falling with a bigger piece of bread I think I probably masked the hook point and the much heavier carp made off after a 5 minute fight..............very annoying!!

Lovely peaceful day made all the more enjoyable by the company of an 83 year old club member who also managed a 5lb fish....

Out again Tues/Wed/Fri for another go..................I agree with Peter about the wind though as it was pretty chilly coming across the lake. A mug or two of Keemun tea soon solved the chill factor!

I had a word with one of the Rovers balliffs last week who put me on to the 'Barbel swim' where barbel and carp have been coming out lately.

I went there this morning, due to the roads to my airgun club being shut, and caught the same Bream twice in 20 minutes

The second time it seemed to have woken up a bit and took a whole 20 seconds to land

I will be there tomorrow and I'm going to fish til an hour after dark.

Well fished the Bull Fisheries water just outside Halesowen today .

Very slow start up but it woke up and produced some nice Bream 3 at around 3 lbs 2 perch one pesky one a tad over 2 lbs and a nice coillection of roach from how the hell did he even get the hook in there to about 1.5lbs so not a bad day on white and yellow maggots nothing else ..

Won club match on the Colne at Uxbridge with 8-5.
Match was originally scheduled for our lake near Wraysbury but with two banks still inaccessible and most of the platforms on the other bank still well underwater we switched it to the river. River had only dropped three or four inches since we were last here a fortnight ago and still hammering through.
Only a dozen of us today (think the last result here brought about some hurriedly arranged prior engagements ) so we decided to fish it as a rover. I drew third away and a few eyebrows raised when I went for the same peg as last time as the swim is still boiling up massively, and horribly snaggy. Fancied it for a couple of big fish though . Had one chub around 3-4 on big stick and maggot right down the peg, lost another one, and added a bream about 4-12 and a few little roach on the flat float with bits of worm. (Flow has eased a bit, only needed 7 gm today) The bream performed a cracking pair of 5 yard triple jumps- have often had them do that on commercials but never seen it on a river before.
Think I weighed more than the rest of the match put together. 3-6 of little roach was second. Looks like the longer the river stays high, the harder it gets for some reason.

Whatever the snag is that the floods have dumped in the chub flier at the top end seems to be a particularly evil one. Its now 5-0 to the chub there in the last two matches with a 3-0 home win for them today.

Won myself the clubs points championship today as well;was level on points before today; other contender drew second away and went for the usual "extra water on" banker on the backstream behind the nursery school. And caught a bleak....

A chub from the tees today, and a few trout on the stick a few days back. Don't know where the grayling have gone - seem to have disappeared. Must be shoaled up somewhere
