Going Fishing

Today I will hopefully be going fishing. Last September I had a heart attack and a stent fitted, which all went well, but all the medicines I’m taking have horrible side effects. I’m hoping for a spot of fishing late afternoon today.

The weather is bright sunshine with cloud forecast for the afternoon. This is a great time to see what’s feeding as the sun goes down. I’m not after anything big, I’ll let the others fish for Carp, I’ll be happy with some nice Tench or a decent Roach. I’m taking with me some worms (not sure if there’s any Perch) and soft pellets, with cooked hemp to attract them into my swim.

The lakes I use belong to the Hockley Angling Club, it’s a nice place to relax and just enjoy the fishing, no cars flying past, just the sound of nature. I wonder if I can manage a few hours without falling asleep, it’s so peaceful.

If I manage to catch anything worth a photo I’ll add them here later.

Happy Fishing

Going fishing for Bream

Well it turned out to be a sunny and hot afternoon, but regardless of the temperature, the fish seemed active and were going for my bait. I managed to pull out this nice looking Bream on a yellow neon Fjuka pellet, using Pigeon conditioner for loose ground bait. I also had a few old pots of the Copdock Angling soft hook pellets, these were unusable as hook bait, but ideal as another ground bait. All in all, a pleasant afternoon’s fishing, and well worth Going Fishing 😁
