our vans, looked at each other, shook our heads, and laughed.
What the hell are we doing. Its snowing, the water looks like an
Irish mans cup of tea.Fair play no wonder 99% of the population
think we Anglers are nuts.
Anyway we gritted our teeth, and said lets do it. At least the
walk to the pegs warmed us up.If we would have fished the road side,
we would have had about a 3 yards walk.But no, we decided to fish
a couple of pegs that we dug out on Sunday. Hence the bleeding 100
yard walk. When you ain't got a trolley it seems forever.
Any way less of the moaning,
Got to our pegs,and decided Dickie would use the Feeder,and i will use the pole.
Snowing, no gloves, pole, result bleeding cold hands.
Set up the pole, and found a nice depth at 13 metres, about 6 foot.
Sorry can't say what bait, as there might be spies reading this.
Dickie was into is first skimmer while i was still plumbing up.
When he told me, is voice was as shocked as my expression.
We fished for 3 and a half hours. I had more fish on the pole, than
Dickie did on the feeder,but Dickies fish were a better stamp.
So it turned out a better day than we thought. I had about 8 pound,
mainly roach, with a few skimmers thrown in.
Dickies weight was the opposite, he had mainly skimmers with roach
thrown in, for about 10 pounds. I think all in all it will be a good start
to the series on Sunday. The anglers are all good silverfish anglers, so i
must rank 14th out of 14 who's fishing it. Oh well whats money, easy come,
a lot easier to go.
Here's a couple of pics of our fish, and below them is the series, and anglers
