60 mile trip to drop my lad off at RAF Cottesmore at 9AM then another 60 Miles to get to Coombe Abbey for 10AM.
Looked really promising, but i only had 2 1/2 hours so didnt stay in 1 spot too log... started at peg 2 ended up at peg 23. fished 1/2 a roach on one rod and did some spinning at the same time.
Bumped into the bailiff.....I told him that i was after ANY sized Zander, he told me that even though quite a few guys had been fishing for them, the last one he heard being caught of was a 7lber 2 weeks ago!!!!! then he made me £4.75 lighter :-(
Another guy fishing there for pike regularly didnt have a touch... but did tell me how he had caught twenties there and a 32 and that he had a 47.5 lber from a reservoir in Rrugby. another tall story????
The lake was very shallow where i was fishing....i had my one and only bite just before i left... from a seagull....honest!!!!!!
They do catch em there though....
