A bloody cold day out! Empty A bloody cold day out!

It had been too long since I had been fishing and even longer since being out in my kayak. With the amount of rain we’ve had in the last few days my normal kayaking spots on the Thames were a no no so Ardingly Reservoir it was. I spent most of yesterday refreshing the weather forecast app in the hope it would look better and by this morning it looked a little better. A little bit of rain and 30 odd mph winds... Luckily the rain pretty much stayed away, just the odd small shower but it was bloody windy. I tried out in the open deeper water where a few had been coming out but with the wind it was freezing and even with my drouge I couldn’t drift slow enough. I tried a few sheltered spots, tried drop shotting, even with real worms, big and small lures, big and small jigs and trolling in between but nothing. By now I was freezing cold and not enjoying it so headed back in. On the way back in I tried a sheltered shallow bay with a large jig. On the second cast on a really slow retrieve I felt some really shy nibbling and thought it might be a perch. It gave a better bite so I struck but nothing. Cast again and the same happened. A couple more casts and I had another shy tug and lifted into a fish! No monster but a welcome sight on a horrible day. Couldn’t even feel my feet not just my toes!!
