A beautiful early spring day spent beside Hardwick lake at the Linear complex. The temperature is beginning to rise now, almost to T-shirt level but every time the sun went behind a cloud an extra layer was required. The Snow drops are dying off and the Daffodils are only a few days from blooming. Our pet sheep Isobel gave birth to two lambs so spring is definitely here, or at least almost here.
No one told the fish though! A whole morning and most of the afternoon fishing chopped worm and feeder and not a single fish, or bite even. I started the session thinking Roach and gradually thinking Tench, Perch, Bream anything! I would have been happy with a bootlace Eel but sadly it was not to be.
Still if you are going to blank then at least do it in a peaceful corner of countryside in the sunshine!
