Well the conditions didn't improve, in fact they got worse - but keeping with the theme - I could get to it so I fished it!
Birthday: 5lb 11oz
Birthday: 6lb 8oz
Birthday: 9lb 1oz approx, forgot to weigh the net after - so used previous weight.
28 December: Day written off with hangover!
29 & 30 December: The big freeze on top of the unsettled conditions was the kiss of death for the pike fishing - still we gave it two full days...
Well I didn't drop on a twenty but it was great to have a few days on the riverbank, eight pike and a perch in total - a struggle but really enjoyable fishing. I really have to crack on if I'm going to achieve my target of 200lb.
