I elected to fish the middle area, a swim called Captors, quite a prolific swim, but had not produced a fish for a month or so, hence it being vacant on a Friday evening rare as rocking horse.! I felt it was due to produce a fish and had history of producing after the fish had spawned in the past, of which some of the fish had done 2 weeks ago while I was away on holiday perfect timing I baited up with 8 spombs of the above mix, late Friday night (around midnight) once I got all setup, placed both rods on a hard gravel area around 85 yards in the middle of the lake. The first morning I was up at 5am and had watched a few shows over the bait, I fell asleep again around 7am, and was woken at 9.30am to a run on my right hand rod, after a spirited fight, I landed the Thick-Tailed common at 31lbs exactly, a rare visitor to the bank. Snowman rig, comprising of a 15mm crave boilie, and 10mm sweet tiger dumbbell popup. While getting the rod ready for re-casting the left hand rod was away, and after a long close in battle, lasting 10 or so minutes, I slipped the net under the Springates Common, again at 31lbs exactly and another rare visitor to the bank. A small 360 rig, 10mm sweet tiger popup used with a small pva stick ( source stick mix). Nothing further occurred that day, the next morning, after baiting up with another 8 spombs that night, There was a lot of activity over the bait the following morning again, but no action and Im not really sure why, just happens I guess, rigs not sitting right, or slightly tangled perhaps? Then yesterday I only baited up with 4 spombs of bait, hoping to induce an earlier bite this morning, before heading to work.

Plan to spend a lot of time doing nothing in one spot. Moving around on the water an excessive amount of won't improve your chances of catching something.
Use an empty sanitary wipes container to maintain your bait fresh and secure. Put water inside a zipper bag and put it inside the empty packaged. Then, place the box in the freezer.

Dubai (AFP) - England have dropped under-performing batsman Ian Bell from their Test squad for the forthcoming tour of South Africa, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced on Thursday. With 7,727 runs, Bell is the eighth-highest Test scorer in England's history, but the 33-year-old has struggled for form of late and has scored only one Test century since July 2014. Batsmen Nick Compton and Gary Ballance both earn recalls, but Adil Rashid drops out, leaving Moeen Ali and Samit Patel as England's frontline spinners. "Ian Bell has been an outstanding player for many years and undoubtedly still has plenty to offer England in the future," national selector James Whitaker said in a statement on the ECB website. "It was clearly a difficult decision, but he has struggled for runs in recent series and we felt that it was the right time for him to take a break and spend time working on his game out of the spotlight." Reacting on Twitter, Bell said: "I'm absolutely gutted not to be selected for the tour to South Africa. "I certainly feel I could have contributed out there and have been working tirelessly to get into the best possible condition for the tour. View gallery England's Ian Bell has scored more than 7,700 Test runs but has struggled for form recently (AFP "I'm going to enjoy a winter break with my family for the first time in 11 years and come back determined to win my place back. Wishing all the guys selected the best of luck." England arrive in South Africa on December 11 and are due to play four Test matches, five one-day internationals and two Twenty20 internationals between late December and late February. - Compton, Hales compete - Fast bowlers Mark Wood and Steven Finn both miss out through injury, while Nottinghamshire batsman Alex Hales and Surrey left-arm fast bowler Mark Footitt are the only uncapped players in the squad. Compton and Hales will compete for the right to open the batting with captain Alastair Cook after Ali failed to impress in the recent three-Test series with Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates, which England lost 2-0. Middlesex batsman Compton scored two centuries in nine Tests before being dropped in 2013, while Yorkshire's Ballance, who last featured in this year's Ashes, has four centuries in 15 Tests. "The inclusion of Nick Compton and Gary Ballance alongside Alex Hales, Joe Root and James Taylor gives (head coach) Trevor Bayliss and Alastair Cook plenty of options in the top order," Whitaker added. "Adil Rashid showed plenty of promise in the UAE, but with the conditions in South Africa making the likelihood of playing two spinners extremely remote, he misses out. "We feel this provides an excellent opportunity for him to spend some time developing his white-ball skills in the lead-up to the ICC World T20 in March." Whitaker said it was "likely" that Adil will travel to Australia to play for a Big Bash franchise.
Just a few short years ago fishing was the UK's biggest participant sport, although hard to believe more people went fishing than watched a football match. The sport's attraction has wained somewhat, especially within the youngsters whose lives now appear to be totally controlled by their mobile phones and social media. The majority of them will never experience being at one with the countryside, will never see the astonishing range of wildlife attracted by our rivers and lakes and will never understand the peace and tranquility that a day sitting on the banks of a lake or river can bring. Sadly, that's their loss but for those who are addicted to the sport this website has lots of content connected to fishing both here and overseas https://carpenterwksv.wordpress.com/2015/11/19/day-ticket-carp-fishing-in-sussex/.
