NAA Still Water - Thatcham
0430 - 0815
Overcast and mild. AT 63ºF at 0430. WT 73ºF
And blanked in some style too!! This is the 'easiest' water in the NAA portfolio - the one where they hold junior fish-ins. And yet for nearly 4 hours I couldn't buy a bite - despite fishing a single red maggot for most of that time - suicidal tactics usually if you wanted to avoid being plagued by small stuff. Paul did at least manage a couple of bites resulting in a carp & a crucian - and despite poaching in his swim for that last couple of hours no more bites came. I suspect the high WT and possibly low DO levels may be to blame!
