Nowadays, apart from the odd veteran’s matches, I tend to be a lone angler. So when my eldest daughter rang to say she and her husband Chris were coming down to see us for a few days I looked forward to a bit of company when fishing on Wednesday. I loaded the gear into the car and by 0730 Chris and I pulled off the drive to begin the fifteen mile trip the Revels Fishery, just outside Dorchester in Dorset. We got adjacent pegs and fished the pole at nine metres in one metre of water using expander pellet and corn. These baits produced a raft of skimmers, roach, barbel, and carp and for Chris, a tench and a fantail. We finished at 1245 and took over 6olbs of mostly silvers between us and had an enjoyable morning. The only near disaster was when Chris’s lighter malfunctioned and he had to go fifteen minutes without a fag. The most surprising thing was no one else was on the venue, strange that. Oh did I mention, the rain came down like stair rods and it blew a hooley. If we stayed any longer we would have been certified. Couple of photos attached. I am the wimp with the umbrella. Pete.
