All Work And No Play...

Quick catch-up before it's four Jack's Pike in a row - a month has flown by! As the title suggests, very little time on the water this month...

Three quick, 1½ hour sessions on a local pond before work, but I'm yet to connect to one of the resident carp - I'm going for a traditional approach; waggler fished bread or sweetcorn - I'll give it a few more trips before I start thinking about pellets and boilies...

And a short afternoon session on the river with Dan, but it was far too hot and bright - still, it was great to be sat by the river...

It looks like the gudgeon fishing trip produced the only fish of the month - unless I drag myself out of bed at stupid o'clock tomorrow and manage to find a carp - it's not looking likely.

The Sun's review of Stick Soccer - not bad at all! It took just over a week to hit a million downloads and is still going strong - great stuff.

And while I've not been fishing Roger has been bagging up; new PB beach caught lemon shark at six foot above, 8 foot nurse shark, barracuda, snapper and tonnes of other stuff - well done that man.

Right then, back to work.

Finger hovers over the 'buy' button... It's only the fact it's not the -L in the photo, it's a flipped photo of a standard (not to mention the extraordinary price tag) that's stopping me...

Up at 4am to head to the river, it was pouring with rain, alarm reset for 7am, rain... This is one of the few rivers that really doesn't need any more extra water... Back to bed!

In the afternoon and in the spirit of a few more fishing trips this year me and Dan made the spur of the moment decision to head over to Clapham Pond for a couple of hours gudgeon fishing - the pond is carpeted with them - great fun. And a sneaky pint too - saved the day!
