Bury Hill Zeds 2

Last session of the year and I decided to head to Bury Hill still in search of my first zander. There was a two for the price of one coupon in the angling paper last week, so I collared a fisherman in the car park and we had a half price trip each.

The guy in the shop told me the same story as last time; you should have been here last week, they were flying out... Haven't seen any for the past few days though - typical!

All day, mostly in the rain for one missed run. But if I hadn't gone I'd have been sat at home thinking I was missing out! And I think I've perfected my resistance-free zander rigs - so it wasn't an entirely wasted day.

Blogging a few blank zander trips will make it even better when I finally get one. And it's an excuse to wish everyone in blog-land a Happy New Year And Tight Lines In 2013.

    Season's greetings - all the best for 2013.

  2. You will have one soon Brian. Good things come to those who wait.

    1. At these prices I'd prefer one sooner than later!

  3. Yes Stu, I agree with Brian on that 1 it's a costly lesson to learn in the arts of zander fishing at bury hill. The quicker you get one Brian the more money you can spend on a trip to Blenheim!
