Oh to be back on the bank again

March 4th, 2010

Cold and Grey….

Bosbaan can be a cold grey place at times, especially in the winter so it is with a heavy heart that I will drag myself out of bed tomorrow morning and head on over. Only joking I can hardly wait, I haven’t been on a proper carp session in months and I am itching to get out. I was meant to be out last weekend but it rained from 06:00 – 21:00 and the wimp in me won out. I consoled myself by believing that my PVA would just melt 🙂

Anyway here’s to a 2 day session on the bosbaan, which thankfully was not affected by the recent weather unlike Amsterdamse Bos which seems to have been completely wiped out.  Tactics will be small bags of ccmoore bloodworm pellet with either a Meteor popup or a small fluro pop-up. Will scale everything down to size 8’s and lower and will probably use the rather excellent Fox Illusion fluorocarbon in 15lb bs.

Here’s hoping the fish are hungry !

    Hi Nico thanks for the help last night, the rig and the boillies can be found here http://www.masterblanker.com/2010/02/27/tying-the-chod-rig-using-a-domhoff-knot/

    the Boillies were CCmoore Perfect Pineapple which can be found here http://www.ccmoorebenelux.be/product_info.php/cPath/49_73/products_id/144
    I would also use the dip that they make as it really does boost the flavour.
