|It was my last chance for a while Predator fishing at Farmoor today and it was a perfect day for a spot of lure fishing.
I was on no2 as a boat had been booked for a fellow L.A.S member but unfortunatly he had to drop out and I could not swap to No1 as all boats were booked.
The hot spots on No2 are known to me and many more people, word from the warden is that the Perch had been HAMMERED so it was not going to be easy.
The curly tail worm was my line of attack with different weighted jig head and a combination of cast and retrieve and vertical jigging.
I was defiantly getting knocks from Perch but they were playing hard to get, the trout on the other hand were full on and would take the lures on both retrieve and vertical methods.
Due to a lack of response from the perch I made my way around the reservoir and fished some spots I had picked out from past work with the fish finder and fished hard but they did not get me an elusive Farmoor perch or pike.
As always I learnt a few tricks through trial and error and ended the day with six trout to the boat and returned.
The water clarity was very good, there were trout being stocked into No1 and at around four o'clock there were signs of trout at the surface, I am not sure if they were stockies or not as there has been quite a few going in over the last few weeks.
Time to dust down the fly rods.
Floating Lines, buzzers, nymphs, stick floats, maggots and throwing lures at bitey things.
