Homes and businesses were submerged,so in the scheme of things not being able to fish was a very small thing compared to those that suffered flood damage.Though I'm sure Lady D would beg to differ,as I was climbing the walls by the end of the holidays.
Today though I was up and out early,my new toys were to get an airing,keeping an eye on the EA river levels all week things looked promising,with the water receding daily.
|All Ready To Go.|
The last hour I decided to fish below the weir,where I have caught well in the past.The Pike patrol along a shelf about thirty feet out and the Perch closer in.I switched to a Mepps spinner hopeful that the added flash would bring some interests.No joy here also,the floods have deposited all manner of snags in the slack water.But thankfully no new shiny lures were lost in the process,around eleven o'clock I gave it up as a bad job.Nice to be out in the sun,it really was a cracking morning.My head says I maybe should have fished for Chub,but you know what its like,you have new toys and you just have to use them.On arriving home,a text message had to be sent to Mum,to let her know I got home safely.Mums eh,do they ever stop worrying?
I will come back to West Ham next week,as I want to see what transpires after today's game away to Cardiff .So enjoy the rest of your weekend.
