Intermittent carp activity this week meant that bites were had to find but the anglers still banked 7 carp and one of them was a 40!
This week we welcomed another new group to the venue. All the guys fished but Karl marked himself down as half an angler as he only fished for half the holiday. He very much enjoyed the home comforts of the lodge or as he described it “the world’s best bivvy”! He might have only fished part time but Karl certainly got lucky first chuck with a cast to a gravel bar as within three hours he was doing battle with one of our 40’s! Sometimes all you have to do is lob em out! Unfortunately this was to be Karl’s only run of the week but he didn’t look too disappointed! The other guys really struggled for pickups too and to be fair I think the weather played a massive role in this. Carp hate it when the weather is all over the place and the guys saw temperatures range from 4 to 24 °C! Thursday night the conditions suddenly changed for the better and two carp hit the bank within hours of one another. Congratulations to them for keeping heads and not throwing their toys out the pram. Their persistence was rewarded. It can be very frustrating to see carp but not be able to get a pickup but if it was easy then would we really enjoy it so much? It was a real pleasure to meet the guys and we very much look forward to seeing them again in the future.
