Sunday came with a big bump, after the weeks very mild weather, Sunday morning at around 06.30am it was frosty.
But not to worry, it was the first time Daz and myself went out fishing for a while. Daz arrived at arounf 07.55am, van loaded and off we went, heading to Meadow Waters.
It was an uneventful drive down, but frosty and cold, out on the open road the sun was getting out of bed
A glorious site first thing in the morning. We stopped off at a tackle shop on the way down, fresh baits and some other bits of terminal tackle, We arrived at the water at around 09.15am. We got to the middle pond and decided to fish the pegs in the tree's. Gear out of the van and to our pegs,
We both fished the feeder rod, although Daz did try the pole for a while, but the fish were not biting.
We were using bronze maggot, white maggot, red maggot, and Daz as ever had his chopped worm.
We set up next to each other, here's my peg
Daz was to the right of me. Daz was the first to catch, a fine unmarked roach, which was very glady accepted on a cold.frosty, winter morning. Daz continued top catch the roach, as did i a little late on, Here's a typical roach for the day
The sun was rising high, and the temp did rise to take the very thin layer of ice off the water. I had atwo flasks of hot tea and one flask of hot soup, al was drank with pleasure, Daz does not drink tea, and he turned his nose up at my soup, LoL, i dont blame him, it was like a bowl of gruel LoL
The carp anglers were having no luck, we spoke with one angler and he said he had nothing, he was even camping out, bbbbrrrrrrrr, his bivvy was covered with frost, as was his chair when we walked past him, dedication !!1 or just plain insane LoL, who knows except an angler
The and of the session saw Daz with 20 roach, and something very strange in his keepnet !!!!
I ended with 10 roach and very cold feet, dispite the hot drinks.
Agreat day out, which helped me a lot to chill out.
Thanks Daz, your a star mate
