Hard­core drum THIS WEEK’S MIS­SION

Anglers Mail - - Anglers -

After driv­ing past a place for so long, I de­cided to put the ef­fort in and ac­tu­ally fish it… in­stead of wist­fully dream­ing about what’s re­ally swim­ming in there. I had heard tales of huge fish, but from the same per­son who told me that an ea­gle swooped down and picked up a 10 lb carp! VENUE: The Carrs is just out­side Mans­field, at Church War­sop, and is con­trolled by the lo­cal coun­cil and ‘friends of the Carrs’ vol­un­teers. Tick­ets for this Not­ting­hamshire ‘pool’ are avail­able on the bank. WEATHER: yet again, the weather lady proved about as use­ful as ‘NonF­ly­ing Dutch­man’ Den­nis Bergkamp’s Air­miles! The fore­cast was a mild one, bright and nice for mid-Novem­ber, but it turned out to be howl­ing and rain­ing. Not too bad for fish­ing, but not pleas­ant to sit it out in if you hap­pen to be an an­gling pho­tog­ra­pher.

IDON’T make this game easy for my­self. I could pick an easy com­mer­cial each week and plas­ter a few pages about how good I am, but no, old Ste­vie boy likes to make it as dif­fi­cult as pos­si­ble, it seems.

You see, I had spied a lovely venue, pretty quiet apart from a main road nearby, but ev­ery time I had driven past or pulled up on the car park, it seemed very peace­ful.

Sing along with me: “There’s a cir­cus in the town, in the town. Ste­vie Col­lett is a clown, is a clown.”
