Stillwater float fishing

Seven Lakes Angling 07:00-18:00

The day started off nice enough with some sunshine so I settled down with a quivertipped cage feeder while I had breakfast, switched over to the float rod after a few hours of nothing, balled in some groundbait and a few freebies and sat it out....nothing still.
Decided to move to one of the smaller ponds containing small fish and despite steady feeding nothing resulted after a further few hours (apart from pretty constant rain) so I moved again on 'the lake to be on' decided to stick one rod out on a bolt rig and alarm to fish itself and fished the float rod between the bank and a tree in the water leading into a little bay. After enduring a pretty savage hail storm my float finally buried and a small common graced the bank after a decent scrap on a 13' match rod with a 'pin and 4lb line.

A short while later I had a second common of a similar size then all went quiet, moved again a couple of times but had no further luck.

Roll on June and renewing my Newbury ticket this year!!
