You are teasing us Bob.
I may go on Wednesday, I have not made up my mind to chase the mythical Perch or back drift for more trout and try out an idea I have Wink

Just when you think you have a handle on some thing it turns around and bites you.
That was the case for me today at Farmoor No1, conditions looked great, the wind was about right but could I get a fish or even one to hang on NO Sad
I was doing something wrong as the other two boats were hooking and landing fish and they were both back drifting as I was.
Flies were changes, leader lengths were altered, flyline was feed out to different lengths and retrieves were altered.

I even tried FABs and Bloobs Embarassed

The day finished with two to the boat which saved my first blank of 2019, I spent the afternoon wondering what Appleman would be doing to catch fish???

Anglers and danglers I guess.

Gulp - I'm solo on F1 tomorrow and have been refining my Fosbury flop for disembarking. Will report tomorrow evening.

i have just heard via a friend who works for a fish supply company that they have just stocked Jack pike, perch and roach into Farmoor.
The predator ticket sales are good so no doubt they are planning for 2019 ticket sales.
As mentioned on here previously, Farmoor is not a natural breading ground for pike and it seems they do not live a very long life there.

A sensible move. If you're going to stock a top predator it's a good idea to stick some food in there for them as well. The Farmoor used to have vast shoals of roach. I once saw a shoal at least 10 yards across and hundreds of yards long on F2. I guess the nice little blackbirds have thinned them out.

The weather isn't looking too bad for the club back-drifting jaunt on Sunday.

A busy day on F2 today. 12 of us turned out which for a club of only 20 members is not too bad. The wind was predominantly S moving round to SW as the day wore on. I was looking forward to trying my new snake creation, but apart from one fish to it caught by my pal at the pointed end, nothing else showed a lot of interest in it. A few modifications needed before it gets wet again.

The fish seemed to be rather well spread out and long drifts usually resulted in maybe one fish to the boat between the two of us. Not going to set the world on fire. I changed the point fly to a black & green booby snake which ended up catching four fish. We found a lot of fish just off the sailing club. If we set up a drift between the tower and one of the blue buoys we could just about guarantee interest from fish. I had 6 on a smaller booby in a violent fuschia colour and when my pal changed to one in a similar colour he ended up with 6. So, 16 to the boat. One of the other club pair had 17 to their boat and another boat had 14. The rest made up with 4's & 5's.
