Fishing exploits no.1 in a series of six billion…

Well it was off to Hanningfield Reservoir the other day for a spot of trout fishing. Also an early birthday treat for my fishing partner, Andrew, aged 13 and 364/365ths.

 

Before you go thinking I’m some sort of expert fisherman, I’m not. In fact what I gained wasn’t fish but more experience:

  • If you think it’s easy to spin for game fish e.g trout, try doing it for most of the day using a heavy carp rod. Next time I’ll get a lightweight spinning rod of some kind.
  • as for (a) above but try doing it on a boat.
  • yes, you can get sunburnt on a cloudy day in June if you’re not careful.
  • an “8 fish” ticket is probably a tad optimistic.

Well we did see the odd fish being caught but not by us this time. I suspect we’ll stick to carp. We can’t eat them but at least we get some action when we go to Wakering.
