Just off to thorneyweir for a few days. I much prefer fishing midweek so as i had the chance (thanks Una) i thought i would grab it with both hands. There are (or were) fish over at least 1 rod so i am hoping for my 1st thorney carp soonish. If i manage to winkle one out i will drop a message here.

Actually, hold the presses, a pike just hammered some poor roach right in my swim. At least something likes my bait.
