Perfect for Perch 18-10-15

Today saw me get out for my first perch session .It wasn't goin to be an early start as I've a cold and thought I'd go a bit later as this water doesn't seem to have a feeding window for the perch.
Upon arrival I had a quick look at some pegs I'd fished before,but decided against it as the margins had green algae.I headed over to the other side of the lake to get out of the wind.Today would see me fish two rods,one on alarm,the other centre pin and match rod.
To my right I had a tree with low branches which looked a good area,so that's where I fished the pin,too my left I fished the other rod.Red maggots and chopped lobs would be my feed ,and a lob on both rods.As the morning progressed my float was sailing away and my alarm rod on several occasions,with no fish banked.I decided to change tactics,half a lob on each rod.
My first bite came to the alarm rod,a small perch .My float rod sailed away not long after,to what I thought was a small perch,it wasn't ,it was a Ruffe.
The weather today was warm considering a nice right to left breeze across the lake ,I was nice and sheltered by the trees.It wasn't long before my first decent perch,the bobbin rose steadily ,then dropped back,perch on.
1.2 fell to the alarm rod ,never saw the leaf .
I was getting more indications as the day went by,then a good sail away on the float and another decent sized perch .
I managed 4 more smaller perch and a nice Rudd on the pin which was fun.Then my alarm rod roared off,thought it was a bigger perch ,no such look.
A nice roach just over a pound .Hopefully next time I can get back on the other water.
Can't forget the tommy Ruffe .till the next time Bloggers .

Jumbles resovoir 12-10-15

Myself and Eddie decided to have one last feeder session at Jumbles.eddie winning the previous 3 Trips he was brimming with confidence texting me saying see you at 7-45 expect another drubbing.
The mix we would've using , ready to be riddled, Brown crumb and Bread crumb mixed 50/50.
As I was putting my fourth feeder out Eddie was into a roach and kept telling me it was 1-0 to him.As the morning 
Progressed it seemed we were only goin to catch roach .
The res was lower than our last session
One minute is was overcast, and like a mill pond , then some sun and a light breeze,and the roach kept coming, until
The bream came to my swim.
I managed 4 nice bream to eddies one.
During the course of the day I had pike trouble,I managed to get in two damaged roach, I was bitten off and lost a decent bream to a big pike.The highlight of the day was as I was bringing in a small Roach a pike launched itself out of the water and missed it.
As the afternoon wore on the boats were out and even the speedboat couldn't get the waves going to help them out, it was 
Too calm.
As the day was coming to a close it was a close call, but remember I was going to get a drubbing by Eddie, there was only a couple of fish in it , Eddie levelled the scores 17-17, would it be enough for a draw, unlucky mate it wasn't.
Browny  21 Brocky 17.
I finished the day with 16 Roach, 1 perch and 4 Bream.Eddie had 15 Roach, a perch and a bream.
An enjoyable day, nice to get out ,thanks Eddie .

Dinsmore Powerdrive banks stick review

As you can see In an earlier blog I mentioned about getting them out on the bank for testing .
I opted for the four foot ones which extend up to 6 foot , so whatever the situation your covered .There really strong and solid once screwed in to the bank.They come with a bar to help twist them in .
Here I have them twisted into a sandy stoney  bank, no problem.
As you can see this is mainly a sandy gravel bottom , and the stones behind the stick are not holding it in anyway .
My overall impression of them is they are going to do what I bought them for
Solid and reliable in any surface.
tight lines, till the next time .
