    Thanks Skippy. We are a small outfit and look after our fishery jealously. All the sparse stock are tip top.

    Ps It rained today of Boddington proportions. Maybe see you at another fish in if they go ahead.

    A barbel rod,10bs and a home made peacock float some wormery worms and lots of drizzle . I had one bite which resulted in this pretty mirror 14 plus.

    I’d have been very happy to have caught that!

    Make the most of your fishing with restrictions on movements likely to be in place it could be a long close season.

    I was doubtful for Boddingtons in May as it was the week before our trip to Malta....but as Malta is now off I will probably be at Boddies.

    Back to the same lake as last week, but to my favourite swim.
    Fishing the waggler with dead reds frozen last week.
    Missed a few bites, hit a few. Thought I had a cracking roach on but I’m pretty sure it’s an ide or maybe a roach/bream hybrid. Weighed it as 2lb 12oz. Good little perch too that insisted on coming to the top of my keepnet looking for a way out, which was a pleasure in itself to see.
    Nice day out away from the shop I’ve genuinely had enough of selfish people this week.

    Nice in the brief periods of sunshine, positively chilly when it disappeared or the wind got up. Absolutely baltic when the sun started going down. There was the odd hint of fish, but not a single bite was had. Still, it beat the hell out of another day cooped up. Perhaps it's still a bit early for this particular water though.

    I thought the same where I fished Chris,I actually saw tench around 18 inches under the float at odd times through the day and as my swim was around 8ft deep(deepest area apparently)I take it these fish were warming in the upper layers,not feeding....

    Can't see a thing in this particular gravel pit. It's normally crystal clear, but the recent flooding has left it looking like the average commie. Just the odd roll, tail pattern and tiniest amount of bubbling. A pretty hard bottom usually means that signs of tench feeding are minuscule unless they decide to roll a lot.

    Had to make the most of the sunny day today. The town pit, just 5 minutes down the road, seemed good for a change of scenery.
    Set up a tip rod with method feeder to a 14 wide gape. Fishmeal method mix on the feeder and 3 dead maggots on the hook.



    Started around 9:30, content to be outdoors but expecting a blank..Around 2pm my phone rang and as I fumbled to get it out of my pocket, my tip wavered then went round.



    4:8:0 and a missed call...
