Blog has been pretty quiet recently as I have only been fishing once in the last 6 weeks due to illness. Anyway hopefully early next week there will be a blog article on the antics and fish from the yearly Archer Lake Social. Wish me luck as I set off for ooooop north at stupid o’clock tomorrow morning and will be there till Sunday.

 

Until next week

 

edit – due to unforeseen circumstances was the social that never was for me

After going through passport control on the outskirts of London…. enough with this frivolity 🙂

Anyway The lake was easy to fnd and a mere 2 hrs after leaving my house I was in the wilds of up north which was as kind of like the south but the people were friendlier.I was soon ensconced in a swim and set up ready for the 3 days of hard fishing that lay before me. I was told to look for gravel patches and so stick and a few boillies were dispatched on to a patch in the middle and 2kg’s of slimy pigeon conditioner was dispatched on to a margin spot. To cut a long story short apart from a tench and several screaming takes that came to nothing ( which as put down to the massive eels that the lake contains) as well as some pike attacking the fry with such force I managed to get splashed… the weekend was quite from an angling perspective.
