Around a week ago it looked as if the weather had changed, it looked as though summer had arrived at last. The experts were saying the Jet Stream had moved further north, meaning we would have a more normal summer. The improved weather lasted a week, it's now back to the way it was all through June and July. The long range weather forecast for August is appalling. I think this is having massive effect on fishing for this year, I've been to places where I would expect to catch but I've failed for no apparent reason, lets hope the Autumn Pike season is a good one or this year will be the worst in my Angling Journey.
