So met up with lee today and took him to 3 sisters.was hoping for Tinca action,well we never had a single one.Lee was into Roach and and Rudd and i was catching Rudd.I changed tactics and fished for perch,using prawns,no action there aswell.Lee thought he would dress for a sunny day,went to van got him a coat,and gave him coffee,seems he cant find his flask.Anyways im gonna go back tmos and fish the Method Feeder.

With the pike rods put away.its time for tench,love em.i fished last sunday for them and had no luck,so off to a new water to have a try.im only using a good old float rod,and im fishing the lift method,fixed spool reel with the new Drennan supplex line in 6lb,sinks lovely.My baits for tench will be red maggot,dead red maggot,corn and pellets.i will be using groundbait to get a bed down but maybe in another few weeks,just feeding little and often to start off.Last year i bought a marco cortesi centre pin,i have yet to spool it up but hope to get it done for this weekend,got it through a friend for £25,excited at the prospect ,simply cos its a centre pin ,that ratchet goin,heart racing stuff.so with the next trip planned its off to 3 sisters with lee,who loves tench to bits,think he will be on the pole.Anyway till the next time,Tinca Time.

Something ive never tried before.So into the freezer and had a look at what bait i have left,a lot of the baits were big,also i had some sprats,about 30 of them.So chopped them all up and put them in a bucket last night.Now i suppose theres plenty of different ways of going about this.I got to the water this morning trying to keep time on what i will be fishing at on saturday.There was a couple of anglers there already so i sneaked around the other way so they didnt see me,lol.I baited up a tight spot that was easy to throw to and i will fish around the other side,which will only require an underarm cast.They seemed to be in this area last week,so hopefully they will be there saturday,they have three days before i go to munch so im interested to see if it works,if it does i will do more next season,if it doesnt nothing lost because the bait needed using up.

The water i have been fishing for the last 3 seasons,holds a special fish,well today it was found washed up by an angler,im gutted for the fish.A sad sight seeing it motionless on the bank.It had a trace in the fish and was attached to 8/10lb mono,when will these anglers learn,15lb min,or 50/65lb braid.R.I.P
