Time for another one of these I feel.What are the chances of ever seeing these fine two fellows on the river bank at the same time ?Very little I am afraid as one lives in a distance cosmos and the other lives in BridgEnorth.
Below is that dastardly character from Doctor Who,all round constant warrior the Sonataran who will not give up his goal of total angling domination.
And below is the Black Country's pie eating champion the Bard of BridgEnorth.Constantly getting harried into taking lesser mortals out on his boat "YamYam".
Upton Park the other night was good,though Burnley are a decent football side and knocked the ball around well.The score line of 5-1 did not really reflect the game in my opinion.Stoke away in the Quarter-Final of the FA Cup next and we play Stoke the week before at home in the league.The Britannia Stadium is never an easy place to go and get a result but I'm hopeful of making the last four in this competition.It just depends on what West Ham side turn up on the day ?
I've got all my tackle ready for our day at Old Bury Hill on Saturday.Now for those who do not know ?OBH practice a single hook policy no larger than a size 4 and barbless to boot.I have used single hooks before but in a larger patten,though never in barbless.But with the barb crushed down.I've made a few traces up this week,with size 4 and size 6 hooks and to be honest they look tiny.You do get given free of charge two "rigs" on the day and can buy more If you want from the on site shop.I'm sure they are spot on as well,but I've always made my own and I would be gutted If one broke on me that I had not tied and tested myself.Easy to make now as well with the various wires on the market and crimping tools.Or do you twist ?Some of the prices for ready made rigs from the Greys Prowler Range are extortionate.Four quid for normal dead bait rig with two size 6 trebles.Pah!
Though I'm led to understand the fish at OBH get caught on small baits.It will be an experience I'm sure.I've not fished a lake for ages,since last April in fact.And never with so many other anglers present,but as I have said before it is for a worthy cause.So I'll just go with the flow and see what transpires on the day.The weather is looking not to bad so I am crossing my fingers and hoping for a fish or two.
