April Catch reports

There is a story with this as well.

I'd just put the coffee maker on the stove when I had the take. I thought it was a tufted duck or coot as they were diving, but as I picked the rod up realised it was a carp, so had to lean back over to turn the stove off while playing the fish.

As I was playing it it kited right, alongside the rushes, but I hadn't got my chest waders ready, oops, so had to walk left up the bank to get the angle to play it clear. As it went out again i tried to sort chest waders but the fish gave me no chance so I had to step ankle deep to net it.20220406_065754.jpg

Lovely Common my friend .

And it looks a lot bigger than 23 too

Honesty is the best policy, it may have had a few ounces more, but to me it's hard earned 23lb.

Facing into a chilly south westerly, wave spray breaking over the bivvy and I got wet feet landing it as my chesties weren't ready.

 

Those KMG Fluoro pop-ups doing the business with the rig I posted on 'Variations...'

Great pic 👏👏

Looking forward to taking my boy when he's a little older. In other news, as of yesterday I have a daughter 😀

Congratulations on the new arrival, and a girl welcome to my world, it will be all Disney princesses and pink stuff before you know it, 

There is also a common saying they reckon all the best people are born In April so she is bound to be amazing 🤣

Well Sky may look disinterested , but I'm impressed - well done Nick ! .

Are you the first to catch from your water this year ? ; also you mention the rushes , do you ever put a bait there , or is it too shallow ? .

😃
