This wasn't the first time that I had fished this water, having previously had three 5 hour sessions always in the same peg and without a single bite, however I wasn't going to give up!
4th time lucky! I got 2 perch, 2 tench (1lb and 11/2 lb) and then this lovely tench weighing in at just over 31/2 lb. I caught it on worm, on a size 16 hook to 3.2lb nylon, floating about 9-10 feet beneath the surface and 12 feet out very close to some reeds. It took the bait well and shot straight for the reeds!
It's head had just come out of the water when my mate Steve (quick off his toes) managed to get the net under it without spooking it - something to be said about teamwork.
It was an enjoyable 5 hours and it's only £2.00 a day. It seems to fish well early morning or late evening.
If you've been fishing lately and had a good, bad, or humorous day get writing. Put your day to paper, include a few details, add a photo if you want, and send it to us. We will put it on a page for you.
