Today at Slough House

Slough House Farm today, struggled for many bites fishing very light for silvers but the bites I had on maggot and 1lb hooklength were carp that smashed me up, so I stepped it up to 3lb hook length to give myself at least a chance if  I hooked another and landed this after a 20 minute battle at 16lb 14oz.

Thanks to Mark in the next swim for allowing me to use his weigh sling and cradle.

I also landed my first 3lb+ Ide from Slough House (on 1lb bottom) at 3lb 1oz.

Only 5 other fish (all Perch) to show for a pretty hard day, but I went home happy, other than having to pack up early cos the carp smashed my landing net pole.
