The unfortunate, has become reality, a blank on the Surafce Challenge for January   I tried more than half a dozen times over the month to try and sneak one; and have had fish feeding on the surface within just a few feet away from me, but have not succeeded in hooking and landing one, on rod and line.Ah well, now for the first fish of 2006 challenge!

Water temperature was cold due to it being frozen two days earlier, and an air temperature of 5 degrees. I cycled to the venue and scattered a liberal amount of dog biscuits in each of the four bays of the lake, in the hope of getting the...

Firstly, I walked around and scattered a few dog biscuits in each of the four bays. It took a long time for the fish to come u...

I walked around and scattered a few freebie dog biscuits in all of the bays and set up ready for action. The fish cam...
