Rockingham 26-12-10

Fished the grass bank from 08.00 till 12.00.
The photos below show what it was like down by the sea.
The photos were taken around 09.00.
It also shows were an earlier tide had come over the top.
All I managed was one 4 inch codling on black lug
on the good old wish bone rig.

It was so cold that the fog was freezing to anything it touched.

However as usual I enjoyed the trip.

Snuff Mills again 21-12-10

Must be mad, back down Snuffers.
Just maggots today with
the same style of rig with a heavier float.

I was greeted with ice on the water from both banks
Well to cut a short story even shorter!
I blanked. Not even a bite.
I could not get the float to trot down the river properly.
First the line kept falling down on the ice so slowing
the float. Then the line was freezing to the rod eyes.
Gave up after 45 minutes.
Really pretty down there tho.

Snuff Mill 17-12-10

Popped down to the River Frome this afternoon,
Fished from 13.00 till 15.00.
Bait was Maggot and bread.

I used a 5 No4 stick float on 3ld line to 2ld hooklenght
and size 20 hook.

First cast with white maggot produced this little
Trout about 1/2ld.

This trout was next 20 minutes later
on white maggot.
A little bigger than the the first one.
