14 May 2011

14 May will be my next session I think I might go to Cicley Mill for the first time this year, I'd like to hook a Crusion, they're a beautiful fish, and for their size give a real good fight. A nice Tench would be welcome!

Slow Session At Rixton

It was very slow at Rixton today, I can think of all sorts of reasons why,the wind, the amount of bait that went in over the extended Bank Holiday weekend, I think I had a Pike in the swim,maybe the fish were spawning. What ever the reason it was a slow session, I hooked four skimmers and landed two. It could have been worse.
I used a Hair Rigged 8mm fishmeal pellet on my Quiver Tip Rod. I fished my favourite peg the small one third down from the car park
Sandra came with me and took the Photos and shot the Video
See the Video and Photograph below.

Another try at Rixton Tomorrow

With luck it should be less windy and be quiet at Rixton tomorrow, I'm taking Sandra with me, a good way of finishing off my leave as it's back to work on Wednesday. This will be my last trip out until 14 May.
