    A few hours on the upper Soar south of Leicester this morning,lvels had dropped since the last deluge and it had decent colour but having walked through the first field I was faced with cows with calves in the next one and they did not seem willing to give ground so a change of plan,I stayed in that first field downstream of the farm.Second cast saw a brown trout of about 10oz landed,it took legered crust then nothing.Moved upstream and had a chub of 1lb 14oz on legered worms - a kingfisher flew past downstream,watched a kestrel outpace a chasing jackdaw then two kingfishers went past one nearly landing on the rod.Moved upstream again and trotting flake saw a chub of 2lb 5oz in the net,then it seemed to switch off altogether as the sun had broken through.

    Apologise for the fotos first but this fone is giving me a problem.
    I was anxious that the Don would be in good form when NottsKev arrived for our planned outing yesterday.Any fears were unfounded as on arrival all seemed to be ok, good or not would soon be found out as fish usually come easy after a very short time.
    We settled some four hundred yards upstream , the plan being to leapfrog swims back downstream until we arrived back by the bridge where my car was parked.
    Kevin settled in a swim that I'd fished before, one that was usually good, and so it proved to be with kevin enjoying some pretty hectic sport with the hoped for Greyling.
    I moved a couple of swims upstream and was into fish immediately .
    I was relieved about such a good start as I've given lavish praise in the past about this miraculously recovered river after all the industrial ravages it has suffered in the past and I seriously wanted kevin to enjoy his day out having travelled all the way from Nottingham north up the M1.
    After a while the sport dropped away so we three (my friend Bill was with us) made our way back downstream fishing maybe another two swims each before calling it a day in order to beat the rush hour traffic .
    We three of us all caught plenty of fish in every swim we tried.
    Back in the car going home Kevin was buzzing about our day together and I knew he would be returning before very long.
    Thanks for our day kevin- enjoyed every minute!

    An afternoon dabble on the local for eight grayling and three spotted idiots. This extended period of high water appears to have put paid to the minnows (for now) though, not a hint of one.

    Spotted idiots....I love it !

    Today was an absolute need to fish day. I'm still not over whatever it is I caught about 6 weeks ago but I've been going stir crazy what with feeling rough and this bloody rain. Today was forecast dry so I decided on a bit of gentle carping as I'm about 3 weeks behind on my autumn carp campaign. Its half term down here so club lake with a no unaccompanied kid rule was the chosen venue. Shame there isn't a "no noisy old boys" rule too because there were plenty of those about.

    In fact the place was mobbed out, flat calm and as bright as you like when I arrived. The spot I fancied was free but it was full of duck and mums with toddlers feeding them. One to drop on later perhaps.

    Found a free spot eventually and far enough from the greybeards for them not to bother me but it was VERY bright and VERY flat. I didnt expect anything at all until the sun got off the water and I was bang on in that regard.

    I had 7 fish from 7 runs between 5 and 7-15 pm. Smallest around 12lb...biggest bang on 17lb with a couple of 16 pounders as backup. All commons bar 1 of the 16 pounders which was a very handsome linear mirror.

    Normally its 20mm boilies that do the business here but I could get no interest on 20mm at all. Every fish came to a 15mm bait. An unremarkable session but an itch well and truly scratched. I'd normally expect 3-4 fish from a short session this time of year so, though the average size was down a bit, I'm not complaining. Another 2-3 weeks and the big girls will be on the munch prior to winter. The 20mm will work then.

    M25 as good as gold both ways too. Something is clearly afoot.

    A cool and bright start to the day yesterday, with a strong breeze from the south east, we decided to fish different pegs today as the carp seemed to have moved out of the shallow end of the lake into deeper water.
    So we set up about the middle of the lake, which fished well last week, but it seemed that the fish had followed the wind, and were on the other side,chap opposite me was catching well, and there was more action over there.
    Our side was very quiet, I had one bite and one bream all day, mick had two bream, and that was it, seemed like our side was empty, no line bites or anything, even the roach and hybrids weren’t biting when I tried a maggot feeder.
    At two o clock mick said he’s had enough, so we packed up and left.

    I put my back out the week prior to the Boddington trip and the drive back well and truly finished it off but managed to get out yesterday for the first time since the trip. Originally planned to fish the Dam but ended up being late after going ten rounds with my broadband supplier. 9:30 before I got going so decided on an easy day at Dunham Fisheries which I had to pay for because I'd left my Bay Malton card in the session kit It's getting colder so wasn't expecting much. Came away with a rather pretty small Mirror around 2.5lb, a couple of Ide, 20, the rest being a mix of lively skimmers, Roach and Rudd. Packed up at 3. Good to be back out

    Just my constitutional walk along the front and up the pier and really enjoyed the October sunshine after all that rain, enjoy the little things is my motto. The sea was very calm and clearing out and if that was going to last just maybe, some lure or float fishing for Bass or maybe some late mackerel. However, the winds due to get up over the weekend so we might get a stir up which won’t be a bad thing for any Codling or flatties about.
    I did talk to a couple of anglers on the pier, both foreign so all I got was “flattie” but they did not understand me when I said Sole or Plaice and they did not offer to show me so, I did not ask. Generally it seemed very little was coming up in the calm sea, not even the small Whiting
    The sea is been given as 16c but I think it might be a little colder than that but it is probably still warm for the time of year so maybe some Soles about still. I can’t fish at the moment but might try a beach bass spot when the tides come round to my way thinking again, i.e. when I get out of bed and regain consciousness, i.e. nothing before 12 noon Just a pic for those stuck on the M25

    If you look closely you can just see some blokes setting up the temporary traffic lights in case I decide to go home this way for a change !
