Dave and Mark’s day of mixed emotions

Yesterday was a day of mixed emotion as I took my youngest to Heybridge Basin. We fished the first swim and in the first few minutes had a nice Rudd and lost (never saw it) a large fish.¬† At the end of the session we’d had two Tench of approx 3 and 4 lb, my biggest ever Perch of approx 1.5 lb plus¬†loads of Rudd, Roach, Bream, Perch and Eels.

Now the downside… I lost a really big perch and a really big slab and when we went to bring the keepnet in there were only two really small fish left in it as there was a big hole at the bottom of it. I looked at Mark and we both fell about laughing!!!!

That said what a great afternoon and conditions were far from perfect as it was so windy.

Hopefully, armed with a sewn up net, Dave and Mark will be returning to do battle with the beasts of the Basin again soon.
