Sunday afternoon session on the club pond. Weather was overcast 10C, light wind, tried sweetcorn, white maggot and red maggot. Red maggot by far the best bait. Tried silverfishers suggestion of 0.10 hooklength to a size 18 hook. 6 Tench all up to 1lb, 4 bream up to 1 lb, 6 small chunky Rudd, a few roach and perch. Loads of angry Ide about 4oz. Wriggled like mad when unhooking, tried to get a photo twice but they squirmed out of my hand and back into the pond. 32 fish, in all a good session, will keep using the 0.10 hooklengths.
