Session 53 – Back To That Pool Again…

Friday 23rd September 2016 and again I headed to the pool (GH) that I’ve been fishing the most recently but this time with a guest alongside with me … Liz’s parents are ex-pats and are visiting us from Cyprus where they moved to 12 or more years ago, and so Phil, who recently retired and now fishes regularly over there, accompanied me as a guest for the day as he did when they visited us last year … and we’re hoping to fish another of my clubs’s pools next week when Liz and her Mum may join us…

A pleasant day, both weather and enjoyment wise – mostly calm and bright although we did experience a short (3 minute) shower in the afternoon, but we didn’t need brollies as we were sheltered enough that such a short and light spell of rain failed to penetrate the overhead foliage and, personally, I didn’t even feel one drop fall… only knew it was happening via the spotted surface of the waters in front of me.

Anyway, we both managed to catch well albeit a bit slower sport than the previous weeks – maybe the heavy rain of a couple of days previously had cooled the waters or possibly materials had been washed into the waters after a long’ish dry spell…

Over the day we both caught bream – mine were all small (1lb upper) but seems that Phil had a shoal of bigger fish enter his swim for a short time and had a few to the 3lb-4lb mark. Phil also had the largest carp – a mirror of 4lb 8oz against my best common of 3lb 14oz … and a few roach were also taken.

Phil found that sweetcorn was his ‘killing’ bait for the day with meat failing to produce at all seemingly… myself, I had fish on worm, maggot, meat, butterscotch paste as well as sweetcorn –  I found that switching bait when things went a bit quiet produced a quick response…

{SORRY ABOUT THE ROTATED PICTURES – THEY WERE TAKEN WITH CAMERA ROTATED BUT HAVE BEEN EDITED AND NOW ON MY PC THEY ARE SHOWN CORRECTLY ORIENTATED BUT WHEN COPIED ACROSS TO WORDPRESS THEY SHOW INCORRECTLY – AND EVEN THE ORIGINAL UNEDITED PHOTOS ARE SHOWN THE SAME. IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO RECTIFY THIS PROBLEM THEN PLEASE LET ME KNOW, TA!}
