Large Perch ?

Not today I'm afraid campers.I arrived on the river just before it got light and had a mighty walk over hill and dale to get to an area I fancied.Never cast a line here before for Perch on this section of river.But a friend was Perch fishing,on what used to be a prolific Perch spot on Thursday.But got through 30 lob worms in two hours owing to the Crayfish problem.So I thought I would try another area and see what was about ?

I did not float fish due to the amount leaf litter coming down.So used a quiver tip and fished lob worms.Only two small Perch about 8 to 10 ounces.A couple of Chub about 3lbs or so.And this little whipper snapper who was hooked firmly in the scissors.



Highlight of the day ? Watching a Buzzard hunt across the fields.The shrill call they make as they soar above our little world to me is superb.If you do not know what a Buzzard call is like,you have missed out.I will be back in the week for another go hopefully for some large Perch.Not sure if they are in attendance ? But it is pretty Crayfish free,so for sanity's sake until the frosts I'll stick with here.

Now to some dark deeds.This photo is of someone a few of us know or a certain likeness I say.I tried to broker a peace deal yesterday between two folk who post on here.But It's a no go yet,as the stubborn Northern sods need there heads banging together.Kiss and make up please ;-)



Moving swiftly on.I've backed Deauvuille Flyer each way in the Cesarewitch that goes to post in about 5 minutes.So I must dash and put me feet up.Will it win ? Who knows ?

  2. "The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

    That perch looks angry Monty.

  7. Dear Mr.Bonney,
    Once again unfortunately you have grasped the wrong end of the stick.
    My comments above are aimed squarely at someone much closer to home,however unfortunately for you I care enough about others concerned to enlighten you at this stage but feel free to have my collar felt if it so pleases you.
    All my love,
    Big Fat Bald Bloke.
