Last of the year...

With the new year almost upon us and cabin fever starting to set in from the Christmas break, Sam and I decided to brave the weather and squeeze in one last session for the year. Unfortunately the high winds ruled out any chance of fishing the coast, so instead we ventured inland to try a canal mark that had fished well for us earlier in the year. Our intention was to target perch on soft plastics but despite our best efforts they just didn't seem to be either about or interested in our lures. Either way the pike made up for the lack of perch, it was just a pity that there wasn't a few more of them about, maybe next time. Happy New Year to you all and hopefully 2013 will be a good one.
