Bake Lakes - A First, in fact, a Complete Farce
Things began well and quite orderly, a nice chap to start the day.
Bear’s turn, but a tiny chap.
After lunch, a respectable weight and pretty chap.
My view out front and to my left, a smiling Bear. All quite peaceful and ..................all of a sudden complete and utter madness. I had been playing a feisty fellow in the margins to my right and with my long rod, a healthy looking beast near an overhanging branch to my left. Bear’s reel screamed off but so did both of mine. Left rod went between my knees, right rod bending and weaving. Bear reeled in as quick as he could, netted, disgorged, released a little chap and ran over to help me. I handed over my left rod just as the naughty creature managed to spit out the hook. Uh Oh....... sorry Bear. Right rod I landed the ghost carp that had plagued me all day, but by the size of him, I wished I’d never bothered.
Well, never has this nonsense ever happened to us before. Three reels on the run and never, ever have I had both my reels go off at the same time. Let’s hope this nonsense is a one off. So three to Bear and two to me. I leave you with the baddie that fought me in the shallows.
ALL IN ALL LAUGHED LIKE KIDS
