Chance taken at Rain­bow

Carpworld - - ECHOES -

Colin Richards had the chance to join John Lil­ley on the Is­land for eight days, and he took him up on the of­fer even though the lake was fish­ing slow with mi­nus tem­per­a­tures all week. Colin caught three fish early in the trip up to 46lb, which was a re­lief as the pre­vi­ous an­glers had both blanked. Sur­pris­ingly, the fish­ing slowed down as the weather im­proved and tem­per­a­ture rose. Colin was due to leave on the Mon­day as it was half-term at home and he was tak­ing his son off to Cen­tre Parks. But just as he was pack­ing up, out of the blue, a rod that he had put out the pre­vi­ous Sun­day with a corked Brazil on it, tore off, which was a shock and un­usual, as the bites had been very timid up to that point! Af­ter a lovely fight he net­ted a stun­ning 62lb com­mon, which made the trip worth the ef­fort in the cold.
