     Title: Bit Of A Runaround

Sunday 8 July 2012


Out early this morning to hit a few marks that didnt produce for one reason or another, knowing there were fish about i had one last mark to try before high tide hit, im never one to give up ! As i started my first retreive i noticed a fellow lure angler on the horizon, we clocked each other, then the mysterious angler started to move to where i was fishing and pretty much as he appeared i had a good hit on my Ima Sasuke 140 in orange n yellow, fish on and a good fish putting a tidy bend in the rod as it made short powerfull runs, but wasnt long before she was mine. Watching all this go on was the mysterious angler, well it was Rob Pope a good angler from Bristol who i guided last year and have fished with since, good timing ! as i got rob to take a few snaps and a very good job he did. Its great to see Rob out using his Bass brain and getting himself some tidy fish, 3 i believe up to 4 n a half pounds, good fishing mate....
