Snitterfield Reservoir - 09.09.12

A great venue Snitterfield Reservoir, when it's fishing well it's brilliant, when it's fishing bad it's really bad, today was bad. Plenty of fishing topping when I arrived early on, and within an hour I had a couple of small Tench and a few small Crucian carp, but then where I was fishing the fish switched off, nothing that I did would muster any more bites.

Remember the film the 'Fog', well something similar happened today, a big slick of algae descended on the majority of the water, thick and pungent it was not anything like I had experienced before whilst fishing. Maybe that caused the fish to stop feeding, who knows. After 2 hours of no bites at all, I decided to leave early and enjoy the September sunshine.
