So today I took my six year old son and ten year old nephew out for a couple of hours on a local lake.
I set them both up on whips, one had a 3 meter, the other a two meter.
Tactics were simple, rugby ball style pole floats, simple strung out shotting fishing corn over loose fed hemp.
They both caught a few roach of a few ounces but my son caught two Crucians literally feet from the bank.
His face was an absolute picture and by the bend in his little two meter whip you would have thought he had hooked a right lump!
A really fun session, nothing complicated tactics wise.
I was dubious about taking both of them together as I thought it may have been too much but they were both quite focused and they both enjoyed themselves.
Here is the slightly bigger Crucian of the day
Thinking if knocking up a Pole Rig Making Board.
I’ve got a few ideas, but I’d like to pick MD’ers brains on little design tweaks, such as length, markings, pins etc etc…as I’m sure there are plenty on here that have made there own. Pics would be much appreciated
After a first visit to Lewden Springs last Friday it piqued my curiosity in as much as it seemed to have a lot going for it and yet it doesn't seem to attract many anglers, so another visit was always going to happen. So this morning after rising at around 8-30am ( One of the joys of retirement ) and a spot of breakfast I loaded the car up and set off on the 10 minute trip to the lake.
Pulling into the car park, there were only 2 other cars there, despite the forecast of a decent day ahead. It was noticeable on my first visit and again today that most people tend to fish either waggler of feeder, I'd used the pole on Friday and that was the plan of attack again today and just two pegs round from where I had fished on Friday.
