After packing up my sodden gear we trudged our way back to the car, there is a small fishing hut by the car park so we decided to have something to eat & drink in there before the drive back, Josh has now decided he wants to do an overnighter on the stretch and sleep in the hut! Nice one.
This weekend had seen the Midlands Carp Fishing show at The Ricoh arena in Coventry so we headed down there on Sunday morning, a couple of other bloggers were seen lurking around the stands and all in all it wasn't a bad show. Josh had his picci taken with the GURU guys Dean Macey & Steve Ringer.
After the show I had a chance to fish for the latter part of the day so it was down to the local stretch of the Avon in pursuit of a Perch, I have identified several other spots that look the buisness further downstream but elected to fish a spot that I have caught from before. Again a lobworm was fished under a float and caster was fished along the far reed line with a small feeder. Not a great deal happened at all for the first two hours and it was the last hour that saw the action taking place, Chub were very active porpoising all around me and it was a Chub of 4lb 6oz that took a liking to my lobworm.
I'm hoping to get out for another crack at the Perch on the river before the end of the season so fingers crossed.
Just a quick word to say good luck to the Midlands Bloggers who will be fishing the lovely River Itchen this coming Friday, wish I was with you!
