Doing overnight on the Thames tonight after the pike. Only had one last time but it was pissing it down the whole time and very high and fast. Hasn't rained much for a few days and only a little drizzle forecast so hopefully will have better luck this time
Isolating for a medical procedure on Monday, swab today hope it's all clear, fishing Tuesday if I'm ok but defo Wednesday. Then it's work for a couple days then more hospital, the joy of living with long term medical conditions, when the doctors want to you to jump you say how high.
Really struggle with pleasure fishing, but going with my mate on Monday, to a ...... river, will have to dust off the cobwebs from my spliced tip rods, stick floats and crowquills and river pole floats, what an adventure ?. It’s been a while since I fished running water.
Out tomorrow on my local lake for a much needed few hours and maybe a little Sunday session too with my son as the forecast is mild and he’s asked to go try the new pole after church - once I get some elastic after fishing
Not feeling particularly optimistic about Sunday now as perusing the clubs FB pages it’s basically just people saying most the river is going through like a train so they’re having to fish on the lock cuts. Looks a bit big fish or bust on the lock cuts which is not my area of expertise ?
Weather looks good though so should at least be nice to be out and who knows a couple dry days might see the river drop a bit yet ??
