Spent a couple of hours getting everything ready for our trip to Eye Kettleby tomorrow, for a week.

Pack the car first thing in the morning, call into Fishing Republic for casters and maggots, drop cat at Cattery and then the 70+ miles to Melton Mowbray.

Hope to be fishing by half three for a few hours. SWMBO will be a fishing widow for most of the 7 days away.

@Geoff P will you still be fishing on the 18th or is that the day you leave ?


Cheers
It is SWMBO birthday but will be fishing morning until about 2 o clock, then the rest of the day is for her. Is there a good chinese restaurant in town to take her for a meal in the evening?

I have fished there in the past and enjoyed it, some nice Tench in lake 3. Does the owner still take food orders when collecting ticket money?

How’s the fishing there Geoff?

Also are there any matches held there?

Sorry to interrupt your fish-a-thon!

Tried pond 6. Had plenty of roach and skimmers at 7 metres, too windy to try the far bank. Down the edge I had more roach on worm, two small carp on worm then as I was packing up went down the edge with 6mm bloodworm hard pellet and snared a carp of about 3 lb. Nothing large but great to be fishing. Going to try pond 3 Saturday after some crucians.

Sounds like you are going to have a great holiday. Hope so.

Nice to meet up earlier @Geoff P I would rather be fishing alongside you than doing the gardening / tip run / B&Q visit any day. :)
