I finally managed to get out before Christmas.  It had been a bad 3 weeks, both my wife and myself had got that stomach bug, as well as, all the wind and rain.  I found a free day when the weather was not too bad.


The river is very high due to all of the rain (as I mentioned before) and coloured, I hope it will produce some nice pike for me.


I set up on a big bend which has plenty of slack water for the fish to rest up in.
Both rods were baited up with half herring,  for some reason was the only type of dead baits I had in the freezer.  I was sure I had some joey mackerel on there,  oh well let’s hope the Pike are in the mood for herring this week!

Both rods have been cast in the slack water, clear deepish water, just the other side of a dead reeds.


I have been trying to catch some live bait with not much success.

Unfortunately, my trip ended in a blank all round, I even had a go for chub, with no success.

That’s all for this time.
