29 July

Chris Plumb


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!

Oh dear, Chris. Maybe you've caught all the other fish before? Better luck next time. As you well know, it's the disappointments that make all the other trips worthwhile.
