I arrived after work on the Friday I was buzzing as I had a two night pass from the wife. I immediately found some fish up near the shallows and after a couple of hours trying the catch one I moved and settled on a swim which I thought may intercept them if they moved back down the lake at night. The night went well and I had two fish up to 27lb.
The next day seemed different though and I struggled to find any fish on the shallows. Thinking any further chances had gone I packed up and set off barrowing around the lake, 2 1/2 hours later I still had nothing to go on. I eventually got back around to the shallows and stung and scratched I peered into the water and a few fish had returned.
Where did I end up? Back in the swim I had fished the night before. What a knob.
Knowing the spots I quickly flicked out my Royal Marine pop ups and scattered 30-40 matching freebies around each rod and settled back to recover.
