Sunday looks good, Monday even better and I'm on early shift all next week so will be able to take advantage if it feels right! The local, BBC, weather predictions are such that I'm already defrosting blueys and particle mix in order to get some pre-baiting started. I have a cunning plan to use a double pronged approach, which might well include an outing for the Mk IV? I have a couple of swims in mind - both on the same drain system, which should give me a chance of another January eel and also, as a long shot, a wild carp?
There's shed-loads of stuff going on in my little world, at present, but this next fortnight might get quite exciting? Work is hectic - play will be just as intense! I have formulated a loose plan of how I want things to unfold - not always a good strategy; there is so much that can go wrong! However, everything that I will be doing is aimed at culminating over the weekend of 6/7th Feb and my pre-baiting is about getting it right, as best I can. What's so special about those dates? I've got a 48 hour window available to me and I'm going to give it my all - it could see the February part of my eel challenge completed and that would be reward enough! Better still is that I've secured permission for a few sessions on that "flight pond" - proper exciting stuff. I will have just five days, from Monday 1st Feb, to get some particle mix introduced, prior to my first visit. It's a lot of effort, I have to walk, as I don't own a Land Rover, but should be worth it?
