Alders Lake - Thatcham
1800 - 0000
Warm, overcast and breezy. AT a balmy 18ºC at midnight!
2 Tench; 3lb 5oz & 2lb 7oz. 1 Crucian - handsized.
Surprisingly slow evening with bites at a premium, though nice to get another of the lake's small crucians. Tench were 3 hours apart (8&11pm) with the crucian putting in an appearance just after 10pm. Alternated between prawn sections and maggot - though all fish falling to maggot. Had intended to fish longer but driving drizzle (and a stationary float!) persuaded me otherwise!
