I have to admit to being a fair weather fisherman, and I think young Andy is much the same. We are out most weekends when the weather is good, say May through September, but that’s about it.
Last Saturday was a very pleasant evening, and I fished just one rod instead of the usual two. When the fish are biting it’s pretty much impossible to fish two rods efficiently, and a single rod is much more relaxing. I again caught plenty of smaller carp in the sub two pound category, and the mirror pictured at around 3lb to 4lb was the best of the evening for me.
Sooner or later one of those big ‘uns in the high teens / low twenties is going to end up in my net I reckon.
