Fishing exploits no.2 in a series of six billion…

Well it was off to the members’ lake in Wakering for me and young Andy last weekend, and we weren’t disappointed. Considering we are relative novices it looked like we chose better swims than those who were there when we arrived, who we could hear lamenting they weren’t getting much. We were soon into fish and landed a good number of fair carp, mostly mirror, in the 1lb to 2lb range.

For me, having pulled plenty of smallish carp out from the middle, I tried my luck in the margins, a few feet out and 10 feet to the side, and was rewarded with one of my bigger fish. I don’t know what he weighed (I really must get a scale) but a guess would be 7lb-ish (?). Gave a good fight too.

Both went home tired but happy (Andy not so happy as me as my fish trumped his – heh heh).
