Watching the Birds

One last short session to see the year out. A change of river to the Anker to see if I could extract something of note to boost my challenge scorecard.

Attempts were made at the perch, pike and zander across two likely swims,  but not a single taker. A blank to end the year, but one of the more enjoyable ones if there is such a thing!

The show put on by a kingfisher and an occasional accomplice, made the session drift by nicely. They definitely didn't blank!

A pair of robins popped by to mop up what the perch didn't seem interested in. Definitely a day for bird watching.

I renewed the Anker ticket on my journey home and I look forward to locking horns with it again throughout 2017. It certainly has a lot more potential than I've unearthed so far and it keeps drawing me back. Definitely a keeper!

I'm not one for making resolutions, but I will be making more time for other species in 2017. I didn't bag a tench or crucian in 2016, largely down to the waters that I had tickets for. That will change for 2017 and I'll be bringing in something to give me more variety over the spring months when the rivers close.

Happy New Year to you all. Tight lines for 2017!
