Most of our club waters are a fairly long hike apart from a couple. Decided on a whim to have a session this afternoon so opted for our easiest water, the Firemans. Only 25 yards from car park to the water & only 20 pegs. It's like a mini commercial with Ide, F1's, Chub & Tench. You can normally guarantee a fairly easy day's fishing by bagging a good few. Not today though, bites were really hard to come by for everybody. I had a few Ide on 6mm expanders then decided to drop down to a size 18 hook & a 4mm expander. Good decision because the next fish was this Tench. For some reason the Tench in this pond are really pale compared to the deep green shade of the ones in our other waters. They were only stocked a couple of years ago but run to 6lb.
