Another week, another spell of good weather. Couldn’t wait to get a free few hours and visit my favourite fishing spot in London – Hampton Court. This session was short and sweet, with plenty of great fish – including some bream and nice perch. Enjoy 🙂
I love experimenting with new groundbait. This one particularly proved to be a good combination, with added sweet coconut syrup and tiny (4mm) pellets, it’s a killer mix for silver fish.
And of course, like on any river, I never miss to add leam to weight my groundbait down, so it hits the bottom quickly and starts “working” immediately. It’s advisable to riddle it through once before adding it to the grounbait.
After a short break, I got attacked by perch. At this section of the river, if I feed with maggot, sooner or later these hungry guys will definitely turn up.
The biggest fish of the day was definitely a perch, which I only kept for a short time for the picture (as my photographer left me to catch Pokemons?!). In summary it was an other lovely day at Hampton Court, with plenty of lovely fish and nice memories. Can’t wait for next time!
