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 and pellets.
Unexpectedly because of the chilly weather the fish started biting really quick! Both my brother and father hooking into decent sized carp!
I bagged a couple as well...but my trusty brother is yet to send me the photographic evidence!!
The fish continued feeding well....Dad taking to his usual method of slow sinking bread with a float change for an unexplained reason every ten minutes or so!
However his technique continued to catch consistently all day! Decent carp as well! Weighing upward of 14lb for the largest!
All in all I would think between the three of us we bagged up on 20+ fish each, varying in size between a couple of pounds and just into double figure fish!
And all keeping it as simple as possible!
A great start to our fishing year!
Reepham fishery isn't to everyone's cup of tea; the fishing is easy but it is such a pleasure as well!
Day tickets are £10; 7 til dusk
It's a really nice place to fish though you might be spoiled if you usually fish harder waters!
