My opinion only!!


F1 or F2 due to the mahoosive stocking density you either catch double figures in a day or you don’t......If you don’t, you’re either on the wrong method or it’s shut because of summer! #simple 😜

The exception is if they’re pumping in.....Then it’s proper Pish!

Getting the b*ggers to stay on all the way to the net is my problem, Tim! Laughing

Sad Sad

Well that is telling us straight.
I have fished Farmoor a lot over the years and its not that often in a season that I crack double figures in a day.

You need to fish in June when they are hard on the caenis! Laughing

Just had to make the journey after reading the reports. The drive across filled me with foreboding with little wind and a nasty mist. The lake was flat calm but there was a hope of a breeze so bought a 4 fish ticket and set sail on F2. As I motored over to the SW corner the mist started to lift and a gentle breeze started. There were 4 or 5 boats out and a reasonable number of banksmen around the South and West shore.
Set up my 9ft6in LORHIC rod with (i think) a di6,a 10ft extra fast sink polyleader and a very big minky snake and faced the breeze. To say things were slow would be an understatement and it wasn't until early afternoon that I had my first fish to a tequila sunrise blob. Ended the day (whistle blew at 3.45pm) with 3 fish so not to bad and it was certainly good to get out. Will post picture of my best fish,c3lb, tomorrow.
Spoke with a number of rods who were experienced back drifters and they all said things were slow with just a few fish - the boats on F1 also found things hard so like Chew each day can bring vastly different results.

Cheers - Doug

Herewith picture of my best fish - certainly in good nick. The water was nearly at top level with very good clarity.Surprised to see a boat trolling on an electric motor, is this allowed? Not sure if it had been feeding as I gave it to a good pal. Cheers.

Nice fish, but who are you and what did you do with the purist who taught me to dibble? Very Happy Very Happy

Nice report and pic Doug, and good to hear you found a few fish. Very Happy

Given the choice I think all of us would prefer to fish over the front of the boat but when you need to scratch that itch and they are sitting on the bottom in 30 foot of water there's only one way to reach them. Laughing

Ha ha! A great demonstration by me on how NOT to net fish Embarassed although a nice reminder of the donkey I landed when it finally came to the net. I got the distinct impression that it had seen a net before! Laughing

No objections at all, Peter. Very Happy

As I preach every time to the beginners I teach, the critical time is when the fish sees the net. THAT is the time when they will make one last run for it and that is when the beginner makes his mistake and clamps down with the result that he straightlines it and ping!

I think Allrounder did OK. The fish bolted a few feet at the first attempt of netting, but he got it round again without a lot of fuss and netted it. Could make a decent instructional video of how to deal with those last few seconds.

Peter et al,

If you want to see a Barbara Cartland snake, just wait until you see what I've come up with! Trial date is set for next Sunday, weather permitting.
