A 2hr Stalking session with Chapel Baits goodies!!!
A 2hr Stalking session with Chapel
At the last
minute on Wednesday evening 6th June I decided to try my luck on a pretty local
water called Hamstall Ridgeware where I hadn't fished for years!!!
light I was equipped only with 1 rod set up with a crystal waggler, size 6
barbless hook and 10lb mainline straight through. It was peeing down for the
first half hour then the sun came out and it was beautiful. Ang and I were the
only ones on the pool but as Ang wasn't fishing I had the pool to myself (that don't
happen very often)!!
quick walk round the small pool I decided on a spot where there's an over
hanging tree & after a quick plumb up my bait was fished 1 foot over depth,
bait being bread partially dipped in Chapel Baits plum and black pepper sticky
dip. Within 15 mins my float started to move and slightly bob then slid away
...I was in!
took about 5 mins to net & resulted in a superb common weighing 10lb
2oz....result!!! Time to recast and wait.....but not for long!!! Within about 10
mins my float was off again and this time after a slightly longer fight I
netted another common which was an even better weight, just short of 12lb!!!
Fish had now started to top so tried floating bread but was pestered by ducks so decided to pack up, but well happy and just shows that no matter how short a time you get its worth it to try, you may land a personal best !!! (The versatility of the Chapel Baits range is endless!!! Don't be afraid to experiment)........Shane
