After much "shall I, shan't I" self questioning I finally decided to go to the lake. I picked up a small thick-sliced loaf from the supermarket with the intention of trying for roach or rudd.
I headed for the pitch that I finished off in last time, but there were a few vans in the car park and it transpired that these were carp anglers who were bivvied along that bank. I therefore took an easy option and fished a bay literally next to the car park. It was, in fact, quite an inviting looking pitch with a reed border and lily pads, as well as sunken 'cabbages' immediately in front of me.
It was also a haven for the water fowl and I was soon bothered by the swan that made itself a nuisance last time, along with a number of geese and three large white ducks that settled down next to me for a couple of hours.
