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 ?
