Enjoying summer fishing

‘There is no better feeling…’

by Drew Holmes

Waking up to the warm sun rays shining brightly into your umbrella, there is no better feeling. Something i have been fortunate to experience quite a lot recently. Waking up overlooking a lovely old pit that was dug in WW2 that hold around 250 stunning carp, where i have done a bit of spring fishing so far this year. 

This fishing has kicked off the year to a flying start for me, leading to the capture of my new P.B which is now a stunning 27lb 2oz mirror that i caught on my second ever night on the lake followed by another lovely 13lb mirror that following morning. These fish topped off my spring carp fishing, hoping to get back out on the bank soon sitting lazily behind some carp rods. Waiting for that magical sound of a Delkim breaking the stillness that rests calmly over the lake. 

For now my mind is all over the river season with the River Yare, Bure and Wensum pretty much on my doorstep. My mind is in a million places thinking about a long summer of warm nights and early starts out on the broads after bream, perch , roach and everything in between.

River fishing has been a big part of my fishing for a number of years being lucky enough to bank a few very memorable fish from the stunning setting which is the Norfolk Broads. 

These fish include pike over the fabled 20lb mark and big bronze bream over 5lb. Blessed to have my dad and uncle who share the same passion I do for the sport who have helped me on my journey to be an all round angler, and a successful one in my opinion.

On the horizon for me next will be some lovely tench hopefully if luck is on my side. Hope anyone reading this has the best of luck next time you are out.
