It’s been a while! This was only my second fishing session of the year! Where’s this year gone!?
Anyway, you’ll notice this is only my first post this year. That’s because a couple of weeks ago I had an absolute mare of a session and there was really nothing to share. I was in a Yorkshire social match at Birkwood Farm fisheries, but drew a blank and caught nothing, zero, zip! It was a ridiculously warm day and the pond we were on was Oscars. I’d heard it was full of F1’s so went with the intention of getting them going on luncheon meat. It just didn’t happen. The match was a disaster all round to be honest, with the biggest weight being about 20 Ib and most people getting around 6-7 Ib. The pond gets some really decent weights on a good day but it was just too hot and they weren’t having it at all!
So, after that I had to get my confidence back, so I headed to my new favourite spot, Candy Corner. There were no match’s on Hoskers lake which is unusual, so I decided to fish on the opposite side where I can’t usually get. I fished peg 2.
