The fishery was once a roaring success but had been a little neglected over the previous few years. David though knew the potential of the fishery and has worked incredibly hard to bring it up to what it is today.
Its incredibly difficult to write a fishing blog when you don’t catch any fish and I should know it’s becoming a regular occurrence! Having blanked on my last outing to Farmoor golf is becoming a real interesting option.
I had been told that the fish at Farmoor were outstanding and not to fish less than 10lb tippet. I had also been informed that it was fishing really well, that was hogwash the fishing was as tough as a witch’s tit!
Ian was keen to show me the fishing that he had access to, so our first port of call was going to be Brick Farm Lakes. Before that though we had to nip out and pick up the lunch for the day, what better way to go to Tesco’s than in a Porche!
I was kindly invited to travel down to Brighton for a couple of days fishing by Ian Pinder. I am going to split the trip over two blog entries as the fishing was varied over the two days.
Those that follow this blog will know all about the Kit Kat Cup, if this is your first visit I will give you a very quick history. Jock Kettles and I have fished for this almost every year for well over two decades.
First trip out for me it’s been a slow start, the rivers have not been particularly good so a chance to get out and do anything was most welcome.
