A slow afternoons Carp fishing
Having some spare time last Saturday afternoon I thought I would throw my travel fishing gear into the back of the old car and spend a few hours Carp fishing.
So I decided to drive out to one of the Vauxhall club fishing lakes, located near the village of Tingrith.
Which I had fished many times over the years and caught some lovely common and mirror carp.
Having kept away from fishing at the Manor lake for a couple of weeks as I heard a lot of fish (silvers and carp) had died due to the recent weather. Due to a bad thunder storm then a week of high temperatures. Which had caused the oxygen levels to drop in the water and caused an increased Algae growth.
Also going fishing in the hot afternoon sun and between when fish normally feed. I wasn’t expecting too much.
Though if you caught fish all the time it would be called ‘Catching’ and not ‘Fishing’.
As usual the lake did not disappoint as a few lovely carp and even a couple of bream were netted in about four hours.
