The way the weathers looking i think it could be at at least start of February for me as welli've sacked it off bud till the end of Feb.
Good read that I think I’ve fished for silvers in the proper winter (not November like some people call winter ) probably the equivalent of once in year in the last 5 years with 3 of those in one year when we had that warm February. It’s just so rare the conditions line up for them in the winter in the rivers . It’s mostly silvers in the summer and autumn for me then chub in the winter (aside from freak warm spells of course) as they are the only things daft enough to fall for my shoddy winter fishing abilityI have never fished a carp match, but in winter we have a lot of silvers only matches, as the carp tend not to ‘wreck’ them. Some of the best perch catches are made in the colder weather, roach and skimmers will feed in it and some of the best days can be had when breaking the ice.
From the end of Jan last year.....
Another chance to fish this prolific silvers venue, the weather gods were not kind and the van temperature display was gleefully showing -4°...maesknollmatchangling.blogspot.com
PS by carp matches I meant matches where you need carp to win rather than can only count carp
