A sporting day.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

As I am late back this has to be very brief.

This morning I went fishing. I caught ten roach then two pesky carp. I say pesky because I wasn't geared up for them. The largest was about 10 lbs and as a last ditch attempt to get away it went under some rushes 10m to my left and as I walked after it I flushed a Tufted duck off a nest, the first such I have ever found.

On my way home I called Jacko who would otherwise have been pounding the streets of Cleethorpes looking for I know not what as he is on his own this weekend. He arrived at my house 30 minutes later! We set up at the top of a pea field but soon discovered that the line I had seen was in fact going over the corner of the pea field into some long distant laid barley. We had an interesting two hours trying to shoot pigeons coming from behind.

A male Peregrine stooping on the decoys was the highlight of the day.

The old gun had a screw loose, a bit like me. This was the new one. I prefer the old one.

Short and sweet but more than enough to know you have had a good sporting day out in the fresh warm air .

I have never seen a Tufted ducks nest although we don't get many around the estuary until the inland waterways are frozen over, I did once find a Teals nest in the side of one of the dykes and a pair of Gadwall with young along with a Shoverler , so they must nest although I have never found them .

I once watched a chap land a 13lb carp on 3lb line and a size 18 hook. Took him a fair while though.
