Well after my first Bream campaign where I got off to a flyer i’ve really been brought back down to earth with a bang with two blank sessions. The first one saw me on the bank in cool conditions, although I wouldn’t say that it was that cold that the fish wouldn’t feed. The bobbins sat there motionless for 15 hours. To be honest I wouldn’t have thought that was possible.
Then yesterday I decided to do my first overnighter in nearly 30 years. I thought it would be perfect in this mini-heatwave that we are currently having. The conditions were perfect and I anticipated getting very little sleep as the buzzers would be going off all night. What a foolish thought that was although I was awoken twice but I suspect they were only line bites. In fairness I was quite pleased as I was quite comfy tucked up in my sleeping bag. With the arrival of dawn I expected the fish to go on the munch only to be thwarted again. It was strange with no fish showing whatsoever.
Despite this i’ll be back again sometime soon as I know my luck will have to change eventually.
