Tomorrow I will be back out as wind is forecast so we could have a better day.......fingers crossed.
Now where did I leave that lawnmower.

There were some very big fish showing themselves and I was looking forward to returning back today but the rain is banging down, it's windy and I am not well at the moment so hopefully will be out tomorrow.

Well today the lads have returned home after what can only been described as one of the worst May weeks for bloody ages. Cold east winds with rain, rain and more rain together with cold water temperatures have all managed to hamper catching, but they did get a few 20's in the harsh conditions along with some smaller ones. I will post more on the catch when Wazzy gives me the info.
Despite the fishing we managed to have a good time, Wazzy revealed his latest purchase which I must say did actually work, Grumpies sold more Chicken Wings in the week than in the whole of last season and on wednesday Marion and Jeff gave us a superb barbeque, thanks lads for letting me stay over for those two nights.
Last night we had a few beers and games of pool at my house before Wazzy slipped out in the early hours of this morning to bag 14 carp to 26lbs to finish off the holiday.
The company was great, shame about the fishing, I will miss you boys and we will have to do it again some time............next year maybe.

It’s been a long time since my last post so what’s been happening. On the fishing front I decided to go back to the commercials fishing the pole and waggler, not the carp ‘puddles’ as they are referred to by some, but to fisheries containing roach and good quality Ide which have provided great sport and I must say I have enjoyed it immensely.
On the 4th May I was back at the consultant to discuss the results of my MRI scan.
Then on the Thursday the 5th it was over to Manchester airport to pick up our neighbours from Canada who are over on holiday for a couple of weeks. They were staying with us for a few days so Saturday saw us in York for the day, it’s a long time since I had visited the city and I had forgot how interesting a place it was. It is unfortunate however that they feel the need to charge such ridiculous entry fees into the various places of interest. The following day we were off to the east coast, first Pickering, then on to Whitby followed by Scarborough and Filey before returning home. Sunday saw us at Chatsworth house….not my scene really but I must say I did enjoy every minute of it and the house is well worth the entrance fee. On Monday I took them down to Milton Keynes where they were meeting up with their friends to continue their holiday and maybe have a rest.
Wednesday 11th May and I was off to Heathrow for my flight out to Montreal. Having made good time from Kings Cross to the airport I then found out the flight was delayed by 3 hours…….. better than the day before though as that flight didn’t go at all due to damage caused to the aircraft by airport personnel evidently, so a larger plane had to be provided to take the extra passengers. Anyway I am here now and it’s good to be back.
Today Friday……first day fishing, I decided to fish a new swim. It turned out to be very slow with only 1 run resulting in a carp of 15.1/2 lbs, fishing is hard at the moment due to the cold water temperature, however the air temp today reached 79 degrees and the water temp in the margins was 61, so fishing should improve even though the forecast is poor for the next couple of days with rain on its way
