A GREAT DAY CARPING

My mate Paul and I go fish­ing once a week reg­u­larly, some­thing I al­ways look for­ward to. I find fish­ing to be ther­a­peu­tic in many ways and al­ways have a bet­ter night's sleep fol­low­ing a day out. How­ever, re­cently we went to a small farm not far from Mar­ket Har­bor­ough in Le­ices­ter­shire. We have been a few times and al­ways had a good time. In the past I have float fished and my mate has mostly leg­ered. But this time we thought we would fish us­ing feed­ers. Within the first five min­utes of cast­ing I was pulling in a 4lb carp and I was de­lighted. Then Paul was on his feet hav­ing hooked into a 6lb carp. At first I thought it was just a fluke but it just kept hap­pen­ing through­out the day. In fact I took my bait out of the wa­ter when I needed a drink or to eat! By four in the af­ter­noon we had caught around 30 carp and a cou­ple of perch between us. It was the best day's fish­ing for carp we had ever had. When I got home I felt great and also very tired. How­ever, when I did get to bed I could not sleep as my left arm ached so much. Then I re­alised I had been lift­ing all those fish with the land­ing net in my left hand! Here’s to more days out like that one!
