I tried baiting a couple of spots on the main lake but can't get the fish to start feeding on top there so the back lake it was, a swim I'd hoped to fish was occupied but as there was hardly any wind swim choice was not an issue, a swim on the point that I'd fancied for a while was free and there was no head wind to try and cast into so I began my session here. A short while later another swim on the south of the point became vacant and I moved quickly, this swim is a bit special as I caught my first ever Carp on a fly from this swim, three years ago, I caught five that day.
It wasn't long before I got my first fish of the afternoon and a second and third followed fairly quickly.
The ducks were becoming a nuisance so I swapped swims to the point, I'd already put a few biscuits in this spot and one fish was picking them off slowly, one at a time. This looked like a challenge, as the fish was approaching the bait it was pausing for a second before taking or rejecting it, I had to catch this fish. My most 'biscuit' looking fly was out of the box and next in line to be inspected and was rejected loads of times but a quick flick of the rod and it was back out, next in line. This cautious fish eventually accepted my fly and took it, I struck but was quit disappointed by the lack of fight, it came straight in to the net and when I saw it I felt really sorry for it. The poor thing was small, had a deformed spine and a small head.
But liked biscuits!
