Alders Lake - Thatcham
1830 (by the time I started fishing) - 2300
Warm, slightly overcast evening. AT 23ºC down to 16ºC when I packed up.
1 Tench (small), 2 Rudd (very small!)
This evening's venue choice was dictated by the quality of the blackberries rather than the fishing! Another 3lbs picked which Mrs P will be converting into her rather lovely bramble jelly! Fishing was pretty dire - my worst return from Alders this summer. All fish around 2130 when I had half an hour or so of dithery bites which I couldn't hit - which I eventually put down to the micro-rudd! I did eventually manage one of the small, newly stocked tincas - a little bar of soap!
