Pike fishing on a very foggy day and my wife’s really excited about the dab fishing holiday that I’ve booked

As always, I was up nice and early this morning but not for fishing. Well, not initially anyway.

That was later but first thing I watched a movie, The Ghoul, a black and white horror film from 1933.

It was another sub-zero night as far as temperature was concerned, and with it remaining low during the day, even after 11.00 a.m. I was scraping ice from the car.

Today’s angling destination was a huge reservoir, big enough not to be frozen during the current cold spell that we’re in.

Although it might have been fishable, the water itself was very cold.
