So armed with a tin of sweetcorn (which I had transferred to a plastic container), a half pint of reds, a Drennan Tench float rod, a small reel loaded with 4lb line and some size 14 hooks tied to 3lb hooklengths, I arrived at around 4:30pm.
It was a lovely evening with hardly a ripple disturbing the surface and I caught a steady number of small Carp from around 2lb-ish up to around 5lb-ish all on sweetcorn.
Occasionally I'd try using maggot on the hook but every time I used maggot it would be snaffled by a roach or small perch so I tended to stick to using corn on the hook 90% of the time.
Here's a few of the small Carp that I caught:
There where two largish heron flying back and forth across the water with a much smaller and paler coloured heron sitting on a branch in the willow opposite me (probably one of their brood) I only wished that I'd had my camera setup ready at the time they were there..
It was another very enjoyable evening and even though I'd not caught any monsters they had all put a bend in my float rod.
