Cold April 14-4-16

Well I decided to have a Stillwater session fishing the pole and feeder rod I could not believe there was goin to be an overnight frost as I was coming down the motorway on Saturday evening and noticed the Gritters were out.I chose my peg and was fishing the pole 2 plus 3 in about 7 ft of water and all the bites were very finicky.It took a while to get them going and all I could tempt were Roach.
My swimn was warm when the sun came out and when it got windy which was cold it made it difficult to present the float I went on the feeder for an hour with not a touch I went back on the pole and caught a bonus perch , nice stripy.
Lovely size aswell , I continued to catch roach and then packed in.Spring is here but this cold weather continues.Be glad when it warms up.

Lee Martin Memorial Match 9-4-16

Today would see us fish the match at bradshaws fishery on no3 lake which is a yearly event of which there is no shortage of anglers who want to take part for a days fishing in lees memory.The draw was at 9 and I drew peg 14 I knew as I walked to my peg this was goin to be a difficult day.I fished 3 pole lines,one down the track and two to the far island.What a struggle it was just catching bits with no fish showing I went on the feeder for the last hour.An enjoyable day but poor fishing.
