    Default I feel like crying!

    Today I took a trip over to a day ticket lake jam packed with carp and I’ve come away from the venue blanking

    People around were catching, I even saw couple fish in my swim that danced round my float!

    I lost count how many bites I had, I lost 2 fish that were on. Just no idea what I’ve done wrong

    What a terrible day

    We all have days like that. I remember sitting on a pit not a million miles from you at Fishers Green. It was a match. The guy to my right had a tench every time he cast out. Me...no bites and a painful blank.

    What hooks and rig were you using, were you fishing with the bait on a hair or on the hook? how big are the fish in there?

    I would be counting myself lucky, a water full of carp and you didn't snag up on one of them

    We've all had days like that - tell me about it! ( many years ago I once lost 5 tench close to double figures in a morning and I don't think I'm over it yet! Never really did work out why...............
    Sometimes things just don't go to plan, or we have an 'off' day - who knows? The thing is you were probably not doing too much wrong...

    Might I suggest you do a 'barbelboi' and hit a couple of swift JD's, move on, and get back on the bank asap!!

    It really doesn't do to dwell on this sort of thing otherwise it will spoil the coming weeks....

    (Hopefully you didn't toss the rods in the water?)

    Good luck!



    I can only suggest

    Twice as I recall flight. Once on Winthorpe Rack and again some years later, on The Road Stretch. Both times I drew good, they were only low weight section wins, but made me happy. He was some Trent angler was John. There were a couple seasons when he was absolutely unbeatable in the Notts Fed Opens. It was all very depressing. Pete.
