I had been looking forward to getting back up to Barston, this time a fund raiser organised by Terry Swan, in aid of the England disabled team. Decent run up with Tony Rixon and good breakfast at the Premier Inn.
I drew peg 45, it is on a little point where the lake overflow into the stream is, so does put you out slightly further in the lake. Whilst I was tackling up I could see a carper on the opposite bank casting a big white thing out, then winding back in what looked like a dead seagull - I found out later that was a Spomb - I'm still none the wiser really........
I set up a method to fish about 65 yards and a bomb to fish at 30yards, a pellet waggler and two rigs, one for 14m and banded 4mm's and finally off to the LH side at 11m with GB, worm and caster.
To cut a long story short I had one roach after about 2 1/2 hours and had to walk back to the golf clubhouse to take advantage of the facilities, this let me know it was fishing hard, when I got back I had on skimmer on a hybrid pellet feeder and a chocolate orange wafter, that was it, nothing else - an awful days fishing.
Not much else to add, a decent run back, after checking the lottery and finding that our luck was out as well, so a barren day in the van today,
Upwards and onwards, I'll try and find a match I fancy next Sunday.
