Hi people, my old mate Trevor phoned yesterday & invited me to a days fishing at Kippax Park. (Wed')

I haven't fished since last September, so looking forward to wetting a line. (Stir Crazy or What!!)

Got some Krill flavoured luncheon meat, Scopex flavoured corn, sausage, Prawns, Pasta twists & some Duck breast Cat Treats.

Oh yes & the drilled Robin Red 8 mm Pellets.

Traveling light as he's now a smaller car - we'll see what we can get in it this time!!

Will post if any of these go well.

MARTIN,

By all means don't forget the camera. Should fishing be slow a shot of that bait receipt should be most entertaining. I say slow because there's no way you can blank.

It's good to feel the chipper in your post - best of luck

Hope you have a really productive day,  it’s great to see you fishing again Martin. Looking forward to your write up even if you don’t catch a lot, which isn’t very likely as I know you’ll have a good day 🙂.

Tight lines.

How's the weather at the chosen venue?

The way it’s going at the moment if he had set a camera on his float and live-streamed it a lot of us would be glued to the screen, I’ve even tried a mobile app that lets you cast and play a fish ffs.

Well folks, we arrived at the venue - Kippax Park Lakes about 8:15 Wed' Morning for my first session since last September & Trevor's first a couple of years!! Not the best of starts, as when untangling the 3 made up rods I took, hadn't noticed I'd knocked the landing net (Handle & all) into the swim so had to borrow one from the office at least until a lovely old fella, Lawrence came round later & dragged mine out with a grappling hook - He's part of the furniture there & has never failed (he says) to get "Gone In" pole sections etc. Incidentally he always brings with him the only Labrador who can't swim!!! (Think it's a Golden Retriever & actually his Son's dog but spends more time with Lawrence)

Pee'd it down nearly all day with only an hour or so's break near the end. Didn't get a bite till after 1 o'clock. & fished down the edge for the whole sesh starting with Method feeder without a touch. Changed to the Pin after a couple of hours or so with the Krill meat then at about 1:15 the float disappeared & was duly smashed on the strike on 8 Lb line & hook length. Ten minutes later smashed up again on the strike which this time took one of my Beloved black top Porkies & all. I could see the float laying flat on the surface so went down the swim to net it - By which time it has disappeared - presumably the fish still attached?? I batted in the bare line & broke out the other made up 13 foot rod & another Pin. 

About 4 o'clock the float went under again, this time on a prawn & it it was a Monster (For Me anyway) & thought it was never giving up Anyway after about ten minutes it did.

So, only one fish to show for the day but well worth it - A PB for me, maybe around 15 Lb?? I guess.  (My last PB was 12 LB & Weighed & this one looked a lot Bigger.)
