It all started at one of my local lakes where I lost a couple of fish on a short morning session ending with a blank. Then it was off on holiday to Devon where I spent a couple of early mornings searching for a bass in vain.
|Rough ground - surely bass heaven|
|But nothing to show for a long mornings chucking into a rising tide.|
Finally on my return back to the Midlands I managed to get into a few small perch back on the canal, and a small pike from the lake on my old faithful 13cm 4play lowrider in flouro orange flavour.
As spring is now in full flow I had the urge to get the float rod out and try a little pool for tench and crucians, which was a 50 percent success at least.
Finally I took walk down by the river on the way home from the last session in order to get some inspiration for the summer ahead. I shouldn't have teased myself really because now the canal just doesn't seem so pretty and I just can't wait to get back on running water.
|Frogging spot found.|
