The next two weeks in my diary have already been booked. This coming week will be two days on the Colne Valley pit for bream with an outside chance of tench; then two days at Marsh Farm for the crucians where yet again a tench of over 7lb would be a possible catch. Maybe a day perch or tench fishing could be added upon my return but that remains to be seen.
I’ve been sorting out the basic gear for Marsh Farm and with those bits shown in the photo along with my 14ft Drennan Ultralight Matchpro rod, a few other different pellets both hook bait and feed, I feel hopeful of a result. My target will be 3lb plus crucian, but although still a good venue it is not what it was 5 years ago.
Ready for the crucians.
The following week I will again be at the roach pit for a couple of days guiding two anglers who put money into the Barbel Society’s Conservation Fund for that chance, I normally do not do any guiding but this is a special occasion and the work that is carried out using that money helps us all. I will follow that up with days either sturgeon or cat fishing to round off a quite interesting spell of fishing.
