Al’s big silver

This rather nice roach (or hybrid?) fell to two sweetcorn haired to a size 12 under a locslide float.  Here’s the obligatory ‘fish on a landing net and unhooking mat with float and rod for scale :-D ’ photo.  Didn’t have my scales with me (again!) runs about 31/32 cm long, the locslide float is 15cm long so there’s a measure.


Other than some pesky perch and a few more hand size roach a quiet day…. apart from the carp going doolally spawning and thrashing about.
 

As an aside this is my first year back regular fishing since I was a lad of 13/14 :-) so far this year I’ve had a 13lb pike the other week, a 5lb+ tench out of Rook Hall and a 10.6 common out of Little Park (that’s one of my personal goals for this year done a double carp, am still up for the 20lb pike) – Al.

A hard match was fished at Totham Pit

A hard match was fished at Totham Pit with only two able to catch fish, Russell Samuels managed to land two nice Tench of 6lbs 3oz and 5lbs 3oz but he also lost three fish of a good weight. Following close behind him was Bill Woollcott with a massive Perch of 1oz 8drms which took him all of 5 seconds to land. Three other matchmen were unable to find any fish!!

Totham Pit treated with Siltex

Totham Pit was treated with Siltex over the weekend to try and improve the water quality and growth rates of the fish.  There are further plans to remove the weed that clogged up the shallows last season, if it returns this year, as the thick silt and de-oxygenation caused by the weed at night in the shallows are believed to be the main threat to the carp as the water warms up in the spring
