2016 - Sunday 11th Crow Mills - WIGSTON AC

Met with the Wigstonian lads at the Cafe there after we departed to different sections to try out the match lengths for next Sunday's FUR and FEATHER match on the 18th.

A few went to Kilby Bridge where anglers have taken good Bream + skimmers with large Perch to 3lb in recent weeks. A few went to the MANOR restaurant section . I went to Crow Mills and sat on first peg from the car park.

Selected 9m at 45 degrees to my left in the middle of the boat road and had about 4' deep . Another selection was at 60 degrees to my right up to a bramble bush over hang. Mixed a bag of SENSAS Match Blend and placed a golf ball in both with a few pinkies . First time in on my right took a small roach. Then waited 10 minutes before having two small bites with nothing taking !?  After an hour had about 7 fish . next two hours much better and took a string of Roach from 2 to 14oz and several good Perch to 1lb .

Floats of choice is EXNER Anette 0.2gr to 0.10/0.07 to 22's 3411and below SENSAS Stainey  0.3 gr 0.10 / 0,07 to 22's 3411.

On a cold day that was a really enjoyable session , looking forward to next Sunday on the F+F , what will they choose , the river or the canal ?
