Ah yes, that was what I said…..a deep river…I have caught Pike there in the past…hell Claire caught Pike their in the past…..except now we will be armed and dangerous!!
Where did it all go wrong?
We had wire traces, giant plugs that rattled (mine cost Â£1.50 but Alex bought Rapalas at 10 quid each) a nice autumn day and a river that was stuffed full of Pike. It had all the ingredients for a major day of predator fishing.
Why then did we end up totally blanking? In fact you could say we had a negative count of fish as allegedly Charlie hooked a Sea Trout (which none of us seenâ€¦he had a Toby on as he had sent his girlfriend into town to pick up lures).
We were doing everything right…..like er…casting out and retrieveing slowly….my rattling plug scraping the bottom…its only a matter of time we kept telling each other
Should have gone to the canal!
