Escape To The Farm

With over a month gone since I last wet a line I was desperate to get out, so on Saturday I headed to Marsh Farm to see if I could find an early season crucian.

James had already been out earlier in the week and found it tough going, and after a cold night I knew I was pushing my luck.

Long story short I didn't find a crucian, but the tench (to 3½lb), bream (to 3lb 15oz), roach (to 8oz), perch (to 8oz) and even a bonus gudgeon more than made up for it. Great to be back out fishing!

I will be back when the weather get a bit better...

Crusian Parp

Summer is coming, so yesterday afternoon a quick trip to the local pond was in order. It's still a bit cold but one bite - one fish. A parp, not the biggest parp I've ever had but a very rare crusian parp, 1lb 19oz - great stuff! Float fished strawberry and mint flavoured live-bait did the trick.
