Anni's at Packington

I set off for Packington with the better half the accomplice for this visit. We kicked off again on Siblings but after realising it was a squeeze for the two of us in my tight 'birdcage' swim  we moved pools and settled into a nice spacious peg on Anniversaries.

Float fishing was again the game and bait was a choice of meat, corn, pellet or worm. It wasn't long before I was into the first fish and that was a Tench of about 3lbs. Lou then had her first fish, a Ghost Carp of around 2 lbs that went well on the float gear.

Lou then carried on catching small Carp about the same size and her first tench which was about 2lbs succumbed to the float fished meat. As this was only her third session she was eager to hook, land, re-bait and cast out herself and she was doing well, landing the float tight by the island on most casts. I put this totally down to the teacher!

As the session continued we both caught Carp, Tench, Bream and Roach on a relatively quiet lake as most were on Sibling's (which apparently wasn't fishing too well) so all was well. By 8.30 we decided that the 6th last cast was actually the last one (liking that!) and we departed home via the chip shop.
