A Little Surprise

A belated report this week, due to a spot of food poisoning that knocked me about earlier in the week.

I headed out last Sunday late morning to face the worst of the weekend weather. Dodging the showers I hopped my way up and down a 100 yard stretch of the Avon, armed with a couple of pike rods.

A slow start in the first peg saw me eyeing up a move, but then I had the strangest bite on my left hand rod. Pike bites on deadbaits nailed on the deck tend to be quite tame and deliberate affairs. This was a complete slammer though.

I struck into it immediately and thought jack. It wasn't fighting like one though and then I saw those rubbery lips and my eyes lit up. My first chub to a deadbait. Not a specimen though - just a fish of 3lb 4ozs that had engulfed a 5 inch section of lamprey.

The pike fishing was slow on the upstream jaunt with just one jack to show for much endeavour. The return run was a little better with fish of 9lb 6oz and 11lb 8oz as the light levels started to dip away.

That's me done with the Avon for now. My last session of the season will be on the Leam if all goes to plan and I'm looking forward to getting out the stick and pin again.


  1. If the Trx Suspension Online package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Cheap Trx will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this TRX Suspension Training Sale line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of Cheap TRX, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the TRX suspension trainer of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx exercises also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the Trx Workouts has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the TRX Workouts Sale company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a trx straps sale package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the cheap trx package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.

  2. Good selection of Outdoor camping,Hiking,Trekking products at
