Nothing doing on the Bollin

Went to the river Bollin for the first time in years today, the river had changed so much since I last fished it, the sandy bank I used to fish from has been washed away. Access down to river is all but impossible, when I first arrived I had a walk along the bank looking for a place to fish from, I was on the point of giving up and going home when I noticed a pathway through the trees, I followed the path and came a little spot with reasonable access in to the river.
I set up my 13 ft John Wilson Trotting rod with my Rellum Centre Pin reel, I used a Drennen 4 No 4 Wire Stem Stick Float, set at around 3foot.
I trotted through various swims at various depths, didn't get a bite in the three hours I stayed. In the past I've had some very good sessions on the Bollin, also I've had sessions like this one, fishless, there wasn't a sign of a fish all day, nothing was topping, except for a fish that fell to the ultimate angler, The Kingfisher, I saw the bird take a fish, it then flew off at an incredible speed right over my head, what a beautiful site. I also saw two of the most beautiful Butterflies I've ever seen, they were a vivid Blue colour, almost the same colour as the Kingfisher I saw.
Although I caught nothing, I enjoyed the session the peg was pure Mr Crabtree (see photo's below) On a different day I'm sure I would have caught a few fish, but today it just wasn't to be!

  1. If the Trx Suspension Online package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Cheap Trx will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this TRX Suspension Training Sale line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of Cheap TRX, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the TRX suspension trainer of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx exercises also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the Trx Workouts has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the TRX Workouts Sale company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a trx straps sale package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the cheap trx package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.
