Benno and I have been in conversation about another venue where, although we know the fish are under some angling pressure, there is a very real chance of getting a "chunk". A particle mix is soaking in the slow cooker, prior to a period of gentle heat, and already two large tubs of curried chick peas are in my freezer awaiting the resumption of the campaign. I have been perusing the latest youtube offerings; gleaning a couple of rig presentations which might assist my cause as we move into the cooler months? We've agreed to give it one more month before changing tack and seeking new challenges, Ben has perch as his target whilst I have ideas for a split cane barbel project to keep me amused over the winter period and, of course, there will be a few pike sessions along the way.
