In early off early.. and straight on to the Res with a tub of hemp and 2 pints of red. Looked lovely but the wind was bitter and hacking down the Res. This made things complicated as the wind was blowing the loose fed to the right and the tow was pulling to the left. Until it switched to the right. With the wind.
None the less, ringing depth and shot pattern changes meant I kept in touch with the fish and apart from 3 perch and two skimmers or hybrids had mostly netters, and in total a nice neat 12lb. The fish went well in the deep clear water a couple of rod lengths out.
