Three Afternoon & Evening Sessions at Rixton, With Rain and More Rain

Spent Saturday, Sunday & Monday Afternoon and early evenings at Rixton, the conditions on all three days were appalling, never have I fished in August in such heavy and continuous rain, the Clay Pits were a quagmire, all my gear was filthy, and I do mean filthy. I had to completely wash everything I took with me before putting it away.
On the positive side the fishing was good, I caught some nice Skimmers of over a pound in weight, but more importantly I managed to catch a Tench on each visit, Including my biggest ever Tench of six pounds.
I used a Hair Rig set up using Sweet Corn, Spam and Fish meal pellets, this set up seems to be the definitive set up on Rixton. I managed to keep my casting fairly accurate so my groundbait was kept to small area thus concentracing the fish in a smaller area.
All the Tench were caught in the last hour of each visit, just as darkness was falling, I'd forgotten just how powerful a fight they put up, my Telescopic Feeder Rod was bent double, it felt wonderful fighting with my favourite summer species.
The tench I caught tonight had the most awful growths on it's head, to be honest it looked like the Elephant man, I was in two minds weather to knock it on the head but it was feeding so it cant have been too ill, it put up a splendid fight!
As I'm off for the next week I'll have a couple more sessions before I return to work, I had hoped to get on the Bollin, but in these weather conditions it would have been unfishable.

  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.
