First overnighter of the year (bit late).

Gone for the lightweight set up.

Had one within 15mins and secured some pigeon and geese shooting from the owner of the pools.

Hello, that looks a nice way to fish 👍, back in years past when most fishery's had a closed season we use to get ready to fish 12pm on June 15 , most of us had pre baited swims, Tench was the favourite, thanks for posting👍

First outing in a hammock, the weather looked good for it and its lighter to carry than a bivvy.

I love a bit of Tench fishing, there's an estate near me that bred fish back in the 1500s then in the 1800s it's was breeding Tench and trout, in the old wood there is a boating lake full of them. Years ago I had permission but the estate has changed hands and I'm in the process of retaining the permission.

Nice pictures and good result with the permissions 

Cheers bud, the owner is a farmer with wheat, barley, rape and an absolute load of pink feet.

I just started chatting to him about the amount of them and any potential crop damage, gave him a business card I had made up and he said I can come down whenever they're in season and thin them out.

I dont usually weigh them but I'd say about 13lb.

Very well done on the Carp and gaining shooting permission. ( Apologies if I've read your post wrong or misunderstood ) but unless you was fishing in Iceland  I'd bet those " absolute loads of Pinkfeet " are Grey-Lag geese

Yes they are, bud. Pink feet, orange bill.

Hello, have you tried fly fishing for carp ? My Son does this a few times a year, there's a nice largish lake in a Manor house grounds that he fishes, they put up a good fight on this set up, cheers

Never, I dont believe I've ever held a fly rod either. Maybe something to look into.

I was watching someone do it on youtube the other day on Carl and Alex.

If you dont know who they are but have an interest in fishing, Carl and Alex are two brilliant young lads that have been making fishing videos since they were children. There editing and video is top quality and they're nothing but good for the outdoor pursuits and fishing world.

This is the type of stuff they produce.

I highly reccoment anyone who likes fishing or well made videos to check them out. Also if you have children or grandchildren you would like to introduce to fishing but cant get out at the minute, show it to them.

Hello, am not one for videos, as a fisherman of over 60 years I started around the age of 8 with a length of cane, fishing line, cork from a bottle and bent pin🙄😁

I really like the videos from Carl and Alrx, thoroughly nice young men and a credit to their family.

The Dale Hollow Lake trip in the US is my favourite even though one of them missed the trip.

Is that the huge lake they took a pontoon on?

Didn’t do the bent pin but everything else and a seagull feather pushed through a slice of cork. Worked on perch though.
