Fishing Failures

One of several decent roach caught
Not a good couple of weeks for the three of us, I'm afraid! Both Dan and I suffered tough times whilst trying a bit of pike fishing. Dan took to a boat on Chew Valley Lake and I headed to the River Wye, but no pike came our way, not even a bite! Dan did catch a large trout on his new Fox Rage Hitcher Jerk & Twitch lure though, a rainbow of 6lb and a personal best, but not quite what he was after. The two of us then spent an evening on Kingston Seymour sea wall, but after three hours of trying we had nothing to show for our efforts. A blank! Toby hasn't had much luck either and although he has caught some fish, he hasn't managed enough of them to frame in his last two matches at Plantations Lakes. So, highlight of the last two weeks is easily the day I spent targeting perch. Seven fish between 1lb and 2lb and a couple lost, plus some decent roach, made for an enjoyable time. Here's hoping that November has better luck in store for the three of us.
