North Pennines I

We're not long home from a lovely weekend staying at Dufton yha with a group of KCAC club-mates and their families. Decent weather added to what would have been fun anyway. More photos to follow

Mid-week perch success

The first and most handsome of three fish caught on a 90 minute drop shot session on the canal. I had a hunch the fish could be moving on a very mild and still afternoon and I was right. The last two of my three fish were caught in much duller light than I had success in during the autumn. Maybe this is because the water is now very clear?

We had an errand to run in Skipton earlier and it would have been rude not to have nipped into Bizzie Lizzie's afterwards. I fancy an early morning session on the drop shot around and about the boats immensely

Perchless Sunday

I had a spare couple of hours this morning to nip down to the canal before going for a walk up the Beacon with Stef, Tuss and John Preston. On Friday I dug out an ancient 3-layer Gore-tex cagoule to wear over my Buffalo jacket and today thought I'd be cosy. Sadly I was very wrong and ended my session perchless and frozen. I've had a great three weekend run catching at least one decent fish per outing dropshotting small natural looking baits close to the bottom and and considering the conditions today (a bitterly cold East wind) maybe I shouldn't complain
