Its been a few weeks since I sat down at the computer but its been an interesting time. First I was down at Granffrwd fishery teaching Bernie and had a great time. This fishery keeps producing great catches but you have to really fish hard for the fish. Dries down to size 20 or buzzers sized 16. Fish are just feeding in the little bays and you can see them mooching feeding on tiny insects. Fish small and light.
Next I was teaching Patrick on Ravensthorp and what a great fishery ideal small water for someone who wants to try boat fishing without being daunted by huge expanses of water. The water was not clear and the fishing proved hard but best method I found was washing line on a floater and a very slow retrieve.
Then it was off to Pitsford resy to do 2 days Pike filming It was tough on day one strong winds and bright sunshine but Antony did manage to catch one. Day 2 was far better but there could have been a bit more wind. We did manage to get 4 fish to camera and finish the DVD.
After this it was back to Granffrwd to teach Jonathan and we had a good morning but struggled in the afternoon. As I said before fish small flies on light tippet for the best results.
