Otterspool 27th Jan

Postby dryfly » Sun Jan 28, 2018 8:27 am

Well after 2 weeks of travelling felt like a session on the Mersey was in order. No lug at the tackle shop so squid/bluey and mussel it was. Fished from 4-7.30 (HT 7.15) and met Gazz3r who had landed a nice 3lb codling just before I arrived. Managed 1 whiting and a codlett ( 1/2lb at best) with bluey by far the best bait. Good thing about using 85lb braid was I retrieved a lot of lost rigs from other anglers. Also braid doesn't snag as much with floating weed so all good. Looking forward to the summer after some of the sessions Gazz3r was telling me about with the rays and spurdogs. However must be a cod or 2 left in the river.

Nae midges when it's blowing. Avon Skin so Soft is the business to keep these wee beasties under control. They are always looking for fresh southern meat though!!
