Pb Smashed - Creature Reacher Well & Truely Christand
" Creature Reacher "
hooped over and I started to realise what all the fuss is about regarding the
" Harrison SU blank "
I would usually be more carefully at this stage if using finer gauge hooks but I was kitted out for this fish and a few seconds later she was mine.....
" Jesus . . . .
She's a right lump Derek "
( Prevouse bream pb )
The next pair of fish I had were two decent gudgeon. I had never had an Irwell gudgeon before and was chuffed to say the least.
I wish these grew to 5 lb.....lol
It was around this time when Casterman shouted to Pete
" Are you in mate "
" Yes Derek. I am pal " came Pete's reply.
Casterman and I stopped fishing and watched Pete play the fish. Pete was a tip man and had sat it out to catch his first Irwell slab.
We gave him a little cheer then enjoyed the last twenty minutes of fishing.
I had about five more roach all 4 - 6 oz and the that was it, no light left. . . .
Casterman and his ever faithful scales came toddling over to weigh my slab.
I lifted her out of the net and popped her into the weighing sling.....
" Whats your Pb Cootesie " whispered the Casterman.
" 6lb 11oz " I replied.
He smiled and said . . . .
" I think you're right pal. She looks 7 lb ish to me "
The scales whipped around but I couldn't see in the low light and Castermans head torch was blinding me . .
" I give you 7 lb 1 oz for her Cootesie "
and bloody well done mate " he said grinning.
I was buzzing . . . . . .
What a session !!!!!!!!!!!!
We packed up quick and had a recap on the top bank.
We all agreed the fish were not really having it due to the exceptionally hot weather and we did well to catch one each.
We chatted for a while and promises where made to meet up again and try for some more...
" Irwell Black Gold......"
It was great to be back on the Irwell with friends new and old.
Ps : went in the same peg a few days later and.......BLANKED.....lol
