But that didn't stop us!!
Started at Reepham fishery just after 8:30.
The fishery consists of a large square lake that is connected to a "wilder" lake via a channel. The "wild" lake makes for very pleasurable fishing with its many cut backs and reed beds. Plenty of features to fish to.
My father, brother and I headed to that lake, getting into a swim large enough for the three of us.
We fished simple tackle, waggler set ups on 8lb line. Just using bread or corn and feeding hemp, maggot, corn
I Pro Staff for a US company that creates and sells ultra light telescopic fishing rods called pen rods;
they are basically what got me back into fishing after years and years. (that's another story)

ive been fishing for a few years now after a restart...
I used to fish a lot as a youngster with my dad and brother and then just sort of gave up over time.

im a simple fisherman; I don't use fancy kit or rigs, I don't enjoy a lot of the newer techniques....id much rather just have a waggler and keep things as simple as possible.
my local area has decent lakes for carp,bream,tench and roach
