Last week I had the pleasure of guiding Greg Lewis from Bristol who I had booked in on a nice set of building spring tides.Greg was keen as mustard and raring to go after the early morning drive down.
The first session we concentrated on bumping tt shads in the flow and it wasn’t long before Greg was into the first fish of the day and the first smile !!. It’s a killer method, one which was new to Greg and after taking another fish he was quickly converted !!
The second session of the day was directed towards fishing topwater lures over some some lovely rough shallow ground ( Bass Heaven !) Conditions were tricky with a stiff cross southerly breeze but as the tide dropped the wind shifted to a westerly direction and the fish just switched on.
Greg was soon into a solid fish taken on an asture 110 in ayu which fought well to the net.The fish was in lovely condition but lean as you would expect this time of year. Greg’s smile said it all, a new personal best and off the top too ! magic stuff.
A change in location brought more fish this time on the Patchinko 100 in 500g all bristling full of energy to top off a great day with great company. A great way to start the guiding for 2017, thanks Greg !!..
Off she goes….
