Another really enjoyable day out but again with no return this time. And if that's all you need to hear then catch you next time...
Otherwise, Ade and I returned to Borrowpit Tamworth hoping for tench and bream. I had the day off work so arrived mid-morning and was in no rush to start so did a lap of the lake equipped with my fishy senses. I scoured the surface a-plenty but didn't see anything which screamed back.
The SW wind was battering into the Snowdome bank but we pursued a hunch and fished with the wind at our backs for the afternoon until I made the move into it's teeth at teatime.
A method feeder with some of last times defrosted leftovers was launched into the middle distance after a patrolling bream and the tench rod with maggots and worms fished closer in.
The wind at my back coupled with braided mainline and a carp rod sent the method ball out with a sploosh. 56 turns out on my 4500 reel was my best shot but my average was 50 turns. I took to counting the handle turns on the retrieve after it had been quiet for a few hours to give myself the confidence that I was laying some nice method mounds of bait within a tennis court sized area throughout the day. The rig would catch I was sure of that so was just trying to backfill the hint of ebbing confidence a motionless bobbin can provoke.
