You Win Some And You Lose Some

I’ve been working from home today and it was quite late in the afternoon when I finally managed to load the car to go fishing.

That was fine though, because I was after perch on a local pool, and prime time was always going to be the hour up to dark.

That proved to be the case and I avoided a blank with small perch on the bank.

I struck into a very good fish, though, that slipped the hook.

You win some and you lose some. Indeed.

I also had an active pike in the swim so actually did well to catch anything.

I fished with a small waggler float (0.6 g) presenting a single maggot on a size 18 hook.

The water was about a metre deep and I fished two rod lengths from the bank.

Nice and easy fishing and I parked the car by the pool.

I’ll be back after the big perch. As they say, watch this space.
