Shipmans Buzzer day at Ackers, Pensford
Fished local lake today, Ackers, on the Knowle tab. I don't normally blog about visits here as it is a small farm pond stocked with Rainbows. However felt it was noteworthy today as it felt like the first real day of spring - sun shining, hatches coming off the lake and fish rising. After a slow start eventually got wired in to where and what the fish were feeding on. Five lovely Rainbows all around 2lb on Size 12 olive Shipmans Buzzer fished on a rod length leader of 4lb Fluro. All fish took on the surface or just below - great half day session.
