We needed to finish earlier today to pack Eva ready to go in for her service on the morrow, so an earlier start. Bear leapt in to action first, but, after yesterdays tonking felt he needed to open his account as soon as possible.......I rushed over to the unhooking bed to see a ‘giant’. Of course todays current leader posed with his chap.

I chose our spot yesterday so Bear chose today. I was a bit peeved that he shoved me in the corner, a small space to land anything with bushes to my left and bulrushes to my right. During the day I lost two big chaps who cannily shot into the bushes. I threw some floating dog biscuit right in front of me and soon a chap was licking his lips. I waggled my boilie in front of his nose and he took the bait. Seconds later Bear was on net duty and my splendid looking chap was happy to pose.

I couldn’t help but show a couple of men on the opposite bank.......One caught nothing (all day) and the other just four tiny tench. Off my chap went.

After lunch (note Bear’s nice, open swim......grrrrr), Bear caught his second giant.......

A lovely little fellow, seen with a scale from a ‘proper’ size chap......

A kiss before he was returned to ‘the deep’.

Clearly, all too much for the man who clocked up two, but no carp.....
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL ENJOYABLE FRUSTRATION
                     QUIET, RELAXING DAY BUT SO FRUSTRATING
