Bit of a catch up....bits and bobs

It has been a while since my last blog past but I have been out and about fishing. Lets see what I have done or should I say what I can remember...
After the trip down south to the Itchen I met up with Keith to try and catch some perch at a local pool that contains some very large fish. I tried all tactics in search of the Billies but nothing  seemed to be switching them on. I had though got a pair of carp that regularly patrolled my marginal area. So I had a play and saved the blank by landing one of them....Keith I think may have landed the other one!

The next session I went on was with Danny, both of us being invited to fish a private stretch of the Wye. It was my first visit to this river and must say how impressed I was with both its beauty and the natural environment in which we fished.Things started well for both of us with fish coming to the maggot feeder. I had a mix of barbel, grayling and trout. The best barbel was just under 7lb(pictured) the barbel of the Wye are I feel as Barbel should be, that being long, muscular and very powerful. In other rivers I feel a fish this length would have weighed a lot more. As these fish feed predominately on natural food I feel they put less girth on. Amongst the trout was one that had a very close encounter with a "Tarka" (otter) as on its tail was what can only be described as a paw print. In my imagination its like the footage of bears feeding on salmon at water fails as they swipe them for their ever it happen this fellow was very lucky!

This brings to half term in which myself and my wife went away to Cornwall for the week, to Bude. I as always had packed some basic tackle, "just in case"? On the first Sunday we walked down into Bude to find a local match being fished on the last section of the canal prior to it entering the sea. I was interested to see the catch, so returned for the weigh in. I must say the local "Bude Pirates" a very welcomingclub. I fished the canal twice in the week and had a mixed bag of bream, roach,eels and surprisingly a scale perfect mirror carp. It was nice to fish in such a bazaar area, 50 yards to my left was the beach, in front of me were sea fishing boats, and to my right was the canal...very strange!

My last excursion was a visit to Rutland water to try vertical jigging. This was planned to be with my usual boat buddy, but I regret to say "The Man in Red" has not been well in recent times and had been admitted to hospital. Get well soon mate. I did some asking around and Rob Thompson said that he fancied joining me on the boat. To cut a very long story short, though we searched the hot areas and tried various jigs and lures, the day fished hard. I did not land a Zed and Rob only managed a small one. i did though manage to hook a trout in the pectoral fin, I can tell you it went mental and tested my new little Drennan Spincast 7ft rod. I intend to give it another go and it was great to meet up with Rob, but for now its on the back burner...

  1. If the Trx Suspension Training package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Trx For Sale will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this Cheap TRX line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of TRX suspension trainer, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the TRX For Sale of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx suspension training also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the TRX For Sale has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the trx straps sale company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a cheap trx package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the trx for sale package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.
