    Yes, I surmise that as the water level is so high and the inlet stream has been colouring the water for some time they have lost their stripes in the cloudy water. In normal conditions they are beautifully striped.

    Yesterday saw me roaming the banks of the local reservoir spinning for pike and perhc.The water level was actually high enough for it to go into the overflow,it was never high enough last winter staying a constant foot below max height.The colour had dropped out a bit since my last visit and with nothing showing to a silver Mepps,changing to a white/yellow spinnerbait brought me two pike between 3 & 5lb by 0830.
    The lads deadbaiting weren't exactly having hectic sport but it didn't rain,fairly mild and pleasant to be out and about.Watched two buzzards and a kestrel but also four cormorants perched in a tall willow.

    An enjoyable day organised by Peter Crabtree at Boddington Res. Thanks Simon. Soggy for the first half then umbrellas down after mid day. The res. was organised very thoughtfully. There are tubes for umbrella poles on each concrete hardstanding.
    I know where Wetthrough gets his nom. He braved it without one.

    Plenty of roach caught. Some were real beauties. Skippy had a couple of carp.

    No keepnets so no pictures of bags of roach.

    A few hours on the canal this morning before the latest monsoon struck.Managed to get six perch which started off as small and got smaller.Twice I saw perch smaller than the lure trying to eat it and failing.Fallen leaves are beginning to make cetain parts awkward though,on the brighter side ,only one narrowboat on the move.

    Had a few spare hours Sunday afternoon, so switched of the boys xbox and got him out with me.
    It was his first time using a reel and casting and he soon got the hang of it.
    Using the method feeder we both caught a couple of small carp, well I think they're carp!

    Rain held off so we was very happy about that.

    The weather is starting to get on my wick. Just as the rivers get close to being fishable, it chucks it down. For over two weeks it hasn't come close to normal level. This and other circumstances have left me with a bad case of CBA. In an effort to get out of the rut, I forced myself out onto the river despite it carrying more water than I'd like. I wasn't expecting a great deal, so six trout and four grayling wasn't a bad result in a few hours. Nothing much over a pound or so, but in heavy water even 8oz trout and grayling give one hell of a fight.

    A couple of hours on the pier yesterday, high water at 12 but missed that by an hour and only frozen lug for bait but it turned out a nice afternoon and I needed the fresh air. The sea was OK-ish and must still be warm.
    Met the two blokes who I met last time and they were being plagued by whiting again so I went down to the first bit of the pier, less wind there and maybe a chance of something different but it was not the case. Whiting and one small Pouting but nothing else although nice to see the Pouting which have been scarce the last few years. My two mates said a bloke had come on earlier and caught a nice Sole which would figure, he was fishing the tide in and they usually follow the tide in. I thought they might still be about but maybe not in the numbers they have been last month.
    Had a conversation regarding WD40 oddly enough with the two anglers, I have heard of this being sprayed on worms. However, he said he tried this with two rods, one with WD40 and the other without it and he caught about the same amount of fish on both rods, he tried a second time and he caught nothing on either rod so he reckoned it was a bit of a myth.
    Nice to get some fresh air and the fish were at least felt on my light carp rod, 2oz weight and double hooks and they give the rod a good old rattle but notice how skinny the Whiting are, they must be starving.
    One converstaion my two mates had with one bloke was he said he had caught 8 bass from a known bass mark on the beach, they scoffed at the idea of him catching 8 bass but it might be true and I might try that next time, one will do!
    Lots of Turnstones about, they turn up this time of year, small groups resting underneath the pier and flitting across the sea but nothing else on the bird front unless you like seagulls in thier hundreds!
