A few types of "swims" where we're fortunate enough to fish..   The Exeter Canal before first light (Tench blowing everywhere on this morning).. The tidal Exe     First light at Hopes

I'm guessing I was about 14 when this was taken.That would make it 43 years ago. Eek ! Its possible I had hooked the bottom rather than a fish:)   This one was taken at the same spot yesterday a

Moved further down south recently the canal is a 5min walk so after years of barrowing around a ton of carp gear around packed lakes started fishing light. Drop shotting for perch and pre baiting like

Had this while out tenching, decided to have my rubber casters and 15lb braided hooklink. Just hooked on the bottom jaw right on the point. I was lucky to land her, 15lb2oz. 
Thought I had the mother of all tench at first.

As forest gump said “life’s like a box of chocolates”. 
Maybe because I had such a short hooklink was the reason I didn’t get bitten off. 
Be nice to meet her in winter. Heard there were big pike in this lough but never tried it. Guess where I’ll be piking this winter.

First time out in a long while.. Summer 2019 was the last overnight session.

It was a very enjoyable yet frustrating session. Two fish out with the largest being 18lb.

Probably the hottest days to date and the fish had little interest in feeding, just laying at the surface catching some rays.

The lake has a surface fishing ban due to the amount of wildfowl. I'm sure one would have cleaned up with a box of dog biscuits.

Enjoyable non the less...
