By the time February gets here the nights are getting shorter and the days longer, so I always think of Christmas time as around half way through winter. I know it can linger in March and April, but it won’t stop me fishing for Tench come April time.
So at this time in December I have a number of free days up to Christmas I can go fishing. Days around the family and friends, I’d dearly love another big Chub, but those commercial Carp water silvers and big Roach are also tempting me. It’s like the choice between another piece of Christmas cake or a mince pie, both are as good as the other.
I’ll fill you all in on the trips as they happen, but until then have a wonderful Christmas and happy New Year.
