2nd afternoon at new venue. Went home with a big smile.

Decided to join a new still water after hearing of 12lb tench and 14lb bream plus the big carp and 3lb perch. First afternoon was a blank. But 2nd afternoon resulted in 3 carp and 2 tench all late in the day. Baited a small area 2 rod lengths out with maggot pellets and hemp. Then slowly lowed in an 18mm nutcracker. All screamed off like rockets. Happy smiles all round.
