today. Not on a fish unfortunately buy on a snag and I managed to pull it
free but when I got it in the treble hook had one arm bent so my crimping
has proven good which was something I was wondering about.
However my son snagged up a few times and lost two of my traces and my new
Not a single bite all day and we tried everything, smelt and bluies ledgerd,
bunged and even sink and drawn. Spinners, plugs and soft lures galore but
nothing. The only fish had out of about 10 anglers was a foul hooked perch
on a spinner, right through the tail.
Best of all was that I was given two cheep little lures by three kids, they
set up near me and my son and had typical cheep kits that are useless
really. They asked for a little help so, being a dutiful grandfather and
angler I helped them and used my kit to set them up and at the end of the
day they gave me these lure to say thank you which I think is so unusual
these days unfortunately.
So it is not necessary to catch fish to have a good day me thinks. However I
would have like to have caught one and not lost a lure I was really looking
forward to using some day.<VBG>
