Yep back up Lacock
Then the long trudge to my chosen swims.
At the first I found two Badgers
snuffling around the field.
This one did not see me as walked past.
Only when I got the camera out did it get
camera shy and leg it.
So a gentle flip of the free lined Boillie
down the near bank, and I sat down to wait
for the fish to take an interest.
Well after 40 minutes or so a
pull on the rod and I had a Chub on.
Great start but no more interest,
and time for swim two.
Now this one usually produces
a couple of Chub.
But only a 1lb 9oz Chub showed
it licked my bait.
So swim three,
this was another new swim for me.
Dropping a light ledgered bait
on the far bank under a hangover bush
and a free lined one on the near bank.
This produced the best Chub of the day
2lb 13oz on the free lined bait.
Shortly after the other rod was hit by a
2lb 11oz fella.
Then these to young swans
decided it was time for me to move on.
Now it started to brighten up
after a dull start.
So swim four and I could see
7 or 8 Chub up to around 3 1/2lb
could be seen. Again the
the free lined bait was dropped in,
I watched them race around the bait with plenty of
They were trying to knock the bait off the
hook, which they managed to do.
So using to small baits, I
Gently dropped them near to some
weed mid flow.
A few loose feeds were introduced
and that had the desired effect.
A cracking tussle and a 2lb 7oz
chap was on the bank.
The fish had now disappeared.
So next swim and a 2lb 9oz chub
came out to play.
The next swim produced a blank
so a 12 noon I headed home.
Another cracking days fishing.
I have now fished all the swims at the venue
so I'm looking for some where new.
Watch this space.
