30/12/16 & 1/1/17. Kirton Hall Lake
Hoping to resolve my current fish drought, I managed to squeeze in a couple of trips to Kirton. My last session of 2016 (in zero-degrees misty fog with half the lake frozen) and my first of 2017 (torrential rain with occasional breaks revealing an absolute mill-pond-calm stillness).
During two full day sessions, all I had was one tentative drop-back bite which amounted to nothing. Even a desperate attempt to bag a consolation bream resulted in failure!
I suppose the only positive is I can say is that I’ve managed to fish every single day of 2017.
Happy New Year everyone and good luck in your quests for the forthcoming year.
