First Sesion of the Season On Rixton
Had a good session on Rixton on a beautiful Spring day. Rixton was very busy, most pegs being used. I fished using a Hair Rig using Fishmeal Pellets alternating with Sweetcorn. Took an hour to get going but once I started getting bites they kept coming all day. as this was my first session of the season my reactions were not as fast as they should have been, I landed one Tench and six Skimmers, if I had landed all the bites I would have doubled that number. The weather was stunning and very warm for April, I have sunburned arms. I started off using a bite alarm but moved onto a Quiver Tip, I'm very pleased how the day turned out, considering it was my first session of the season. Apologies for the quality of pictures, I think my camera on my phone was set up wrong. I also noticed an awful lot of fry leaping out of the water, this was happening all day so it looks as if the predators were feeding up after a long winter.
