Bonkers



In a fit of madness I've decided to get rid of all my videos except for the most recent as I am happier with the quality if that one.  The rest are a bit... rubbish!

A Bad Workman Always Blames His Tools


I certainly blame everything but myself for poor fishing performance.  Weather, water colour, time of day.  You name it Ive got it.  The same applies to my video making.  However one excuse has now been destroyed..

My coal powered laptop has been shelved.  Replaced with a laptop that actually runs on electricity.  As a result I am able to edit videos a bit better and I will say (tentatively) that this video is a bit better than the rest.

Chill at Glastonbury

So I've been loitering u
nder a bridge for a few hours, throwing in bread and drowning worms.

Let me tell you that cold harbour is indeed very chilly.

This time I simply bunged on a single SSG and a size 14 hook and used my lure rod like a quiver. Bites were fast and furious but I struggled to actually connect with anything. After an hour a single Roach was all I could muster. Hmmm...

So I headed over to the South Drain and drowned some more worms at my favourite little bridge spot.

I was more successful here with a few smallish Perch but good fun all the same.

On Sunday I squeezed in an hour at Cold harbour and had 2 Chub and lost another 2. Unfortunately my action cam ran out of batteries so I ended up holding a 1lbs Chub up to a blank screen...

So worms and bread. Dead simple but fun all the same!



South Drain

It was only this morning I noticed a distinct smell on my jacket. Suffice to say it was near Glastonbury and I had been under a bridge. Now, plenty of herbs do grow in Somerset but I didn't want to carry the whiff of this particular species...

Cold Harbour is chilly and chilled at the same time it would seem.

Worms


So its been a pretty miserable start to 2019.It was a blank followed by... another blank.

Fortunately I ended this horrible run on Saturday.  Nothing earth shattering but loads and loads of bites.  Jigging a worm across the bottom of the River Brue.

Chub, Roach, Perch - they loved it and so did I :-)
