Fedderate Reservoir
« on: October 31, 2016, 19:08:07 PM »
Weather was absolutely cracking for the end of October, the Mrs was otherwise engaged, so i headed out to my local reservoir. Very quiet place, very lightly fished, often you never meet another sole.

It has a couple of small feeder burns, although they are sadly neglected now the the waterboard sold it. Personally i would not stock it with bows, just improve the spawning for the Brownies, not my call though. That said it has some top quality Rainbows, always put up a decent fisght, lots of insect life and also minnows so plenty feeding.

Weather was to good actually, it was like a mill pond, it generally fishes best in a wind, did manage to winkle one out though

"Because in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing what they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion."
