Anyway switching over to crank baits, soft plastics seem to catch me more fish, but fishing hard baits is more fun to me, don't ask me why it just is. No joy what so over from anything. Last role of the dice and a spinner was clipped on. A recent article in the LAS mag mentioned that if your struggling try a spinner, you may save a blank.
Bingo, a little cheat though. I fished the same pool that saw me bank a 3.10 in June. Flicking it past some decaying weed on the far bank, it was hit almost straight away on the retrieve. I knew just knew this was a good Perch, that jag, jag of a fight. No matter how many good Perch that grace my net, it's always a nerve racking affair. Get the fish landed as quick as you can.
Another good 'un. Tipping the scales at 3.4. I did at first think it was the same fish from June, but a distinctive little mark on the underside was not to be found. Imagine if your a small fish and this mouth is the last thing you see, prior to going down the hatch. Pleased with that, making the effort to move and not get stuck in a rut. You have to make it happen, sure it does not always work out that way, but when it does you have a grin like a wanking Jap.
Could you honestly see this clown ever running the country? I was going to use the strongest of expletives to describe him, but then thinking about it, why waste such a good word. Watching his speech in the week from the Labour Party Conference, left me dumbstruck. He is a totally odd wanker, he must be from another planet.
I care not for his policy's or what his speech contained. The problem for me is the man himself, he makes my fucking skin crawl. He has absolutely no gravitas what so ever! Cameron is a mug too, smarmy. To say the Queen "purred" after the recent referendum vote, makes me think of a little clique of old Eton boys in a tuck shop. All nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Suits you sir.
But it's the lesser of the two evils. I simply dread to think if this prick wins power, the mind boggles at who would want to see this man in number ten. Ed and Ed, yeah what a right win double they would be.
A little bit of a rant I'll admit, but that is just me. Climb up on my little soap box and get things of my chest. Time for some Ryder Cup now, a beer or three and feet up.
