A bit of a different catch report
« on: April 27, 2017, 04:13:21 PM »
I realise that coarse fishing doesn't appeal to a lot of you but hopefully a few will find it interesting.

Over the Easter holidays we took the caravan to Kidderminster in Worcestershire, about as far as you can get from the sea, so I decided to take my coarse fishing tackle and try a day ticket water for a change. Found a place called Haye Farm and £7 for a day's fishing seemed good value. Got a pint of maggots, left wife and daughter in the caravan and off I went. ;)

It was a really nice spot and I caught loads of small roach and two species of carp that I've never caught before, common and mirror carp. I didn't weigh them but as they are a new species they are both PB's!  .happydancer. I was chuffed with them and they gave a heck of a scrap on light float tackle.

It was a really great relaxing day, sitting in my comfy chair in the sun  .sunny.  Anyway if you've got this far thanks for reading!  .cool.

Great stuff Gary. The lads and myself do a fair bit of coarse fishing in in the warmer months, it's good fun and those carp no matter what size give a good scrap. Piking in the scottish lochs is probably our favourite ,as you never know what size of fish is in the bigger waters.

Nice report Gaz mate.

I used to catch roach in the local pond when I was a youngun. I remember I got my reel and floats off the regal focus points.
