Well it's all over for another season, a season which once again was governed by a lack of time, but unlike last season I maximised my fishing, averaging nearly a session a week - although some of them were pretty quick.
I managed my time, working when it was dark whenever possible and changing my fishing techniques to maximise success rates, deadbaits were wobbled, meat rolled, maggots trotted and swims hopped. I didn't wait for the fish to come to me I went and found them.
To say it's been a brilliant season would be an understatement, a season that included four new species, time spent on species I haven't really chased before and ten person bests! As well as new venues, new challenges and fishing with a great bunch of people.
Here is a quick breakdown of the season:
Just brilliant. And now we're back in the closed season, well no closed season blues for me again this year - in a couple of weeks it'll be time to hit the ponds. I will be chasing tench, crucians and hopefully a rudd or two - got a 4oz PB to beat... Crack on!
