So there I am, back on the packing line, Durst inks being dispensed into some rather new, technologically advanced, packaging when Stuart, my colleague, having heard my news asked "what are you going to do now?"
|I have an idea, in the back of my mind, to chase another river twenty |
This fish is from the R. Thames and checked in at 20lbs 1oz
Sadly the Kentish Stour is not a venue where I have any realistic chance, at present.
|A bank caught pike of 18lbs+ - from an Oxfordshire still-water.|
I would love to return to this type of angling if I didn't have to
compete with other anglers. There are such venues, but do I want to travel?
What about tench? - my favourite species; I haven't a clue - I do know that cat biscuits and "zig bugs" will feature at some time during the summer; centre pin carp fishing is just the best fun you can have locally. So, yes Stuart, I do have the basis of a plan, but can't see it being anything more than a wish list - I will go where the flow takes me! (To quote the late George Harrison - "If you don't know where you're going - any road will take you there!")
|Absolutely no way would I return to the crazy days of bivvies and extended sessions. There are, however, enough |
good tench waters within the Thanet area, to make morning sessions a worth while project, providing some pre-baiting
