The Real Deal

So, after the birth of my second daughter last week fishing has had to take a bit of a back seat.  However the customary visitors have been coming and going.  This was used to my advatage on Sunday and I stole a few hours on the bank.

I headed over to Cow Bridge.  A place I havent fished for 20 years plus.  I was drop shotting with all kinds of rubber - none of which produced a bite.  I had spoken to Alastair Allan via FB and he had caught some nice Perch around here so I didnt give up.

The time flew and darkness was looming.  I decided to ditch the fake and go real.  A few chopped lobs went in along with a few maggots.  I then put half a lobworm on and used the dropshot rod and rig like a quiver tip.  Laying the rod on the bank and keeping the line tight.

That little sticky out bit opposite the white camper is where I went.

 What a great fish.  Not massive but with markings like that who cares?

There could be worse places to be

Bang!!! The big boy. 1.5ibs-2ibs I reckon.  A new PB.  I was very excited!

I would have stayed on as the Perch seemed to be in the mood for some grub (maggots) and worms.  It just goes to show you cant beat the real deal.
