Winter lure fishing

March 21st, 2010 Comments off

Well with the winter retreating at pace it was time for a quick session for Zander today, as I know that there are zander in Bosbaan, and even last year I found a dead decaying zander of about 1m floating around stinking up the place, they are there waiting to be caught. As today was probably going to be my last ever Dutch fishing session for quite a while I thought I would pop down to Bosbaan to have a go before the season for zander ended at the end of the month.  Bosbaan was today in glorious colour, really warm ( fleece only) and with the sun out it was a pleasure to walk around.

Beating the ice at the Bosbaan in Amsterdam

If it looks cold - it was !

Well it is a very glad Quentyn who is back from the Bosbaan leaving 1/2 way through a 2 day session. Normally I would be annoyed about leaving half way through planned session but after the 1st night i though I would quit whilst the going was good.

Here is a tip for you, if you are packing to go fishing and you shake your cooking gas bottle and think “hmm I wonder if there is enough in there for 2 days” there is not. The meerest action of checking ensures that there is not. Now in the summer you can get away with no hot water, in the winter it could be deadly. Well you have guessed it, during the 1st night I went to make a cup of tea and found that in the cold my gas bottle was almost empty with not really even enough grunt to warm 1 kettle of water.  Lesson to be learned I feel and my thanks to Mick to popped along in the morning with a hot flask of tea which was very welcome.
