Wasperton - 16.10.2011

3 degrees when I turned up a 7.00am, this peg in the past has been good to me, in-fact caught my biggest Chub from here when there was a heavy frost on the ground. Gin clear didn't help but lets just say, with my friend Simon in the next peg and with 4 rods out, 2 with maggot the others with meat or pellet, in 5 hours we didn't even have a bite. I've had nearly 40lb of Chub here before where most of them were over 4lb.

Wasperton can be like that, I've blanked at Wasperton more than anywhere else, it always fishes far better with some colour in the water but hey, that's fishing. What a lovely morning to be out though.

Dusk and an hour into dark has always been the most productive but I do like the winter mornings as I often walk the whole LAA and BAA stretch lure fishing for Pike, I rarely see another soul and it helps there isn't any boat traffic. I've seen bats, snakes, owls, kingfishers, woodpeckers and mink.

Change of subject but I've had some new boots fitted to the Subaru Forester so it's now ready for the winter and the damp and mucky river banks :)

  1. Some nice images there Mick - even if the fishing was poor!

    I had a very brief Pike session down there on the Friday afternoon - a blank also! I was contemplating going back on the Saturday, but I'm glad I didn't now.

    That said, it looked in far better nick than a club stretch I normally fish about 4 miles downstream, where most of the pegs are just thick with weed.

    A good dose of rain is long overdue.
