It will be early spring before you know it, when nature seems to wake up almost over night, when you went to bed the woods and fields were a patchwork of browns and dull greens, the next morning there are daffodils, bluebells and snow drops all over the place. A time where carp anglers know that the good times are coming.
After a couple of freezing, blank nights in late February a remember waking up early, pulling on my wellies and going for a walk, my gut said they were waking up and there would be a chance somewhere.
Up in the deep corner I could make out 2 or 3 big patches of bubbles and smiled to myself as they had given themselves away. I halved a handful of Marine boilies that I had in my pocket and flicked them in one by one, just to back them off a bit. The cast was a decent one, just over 31 wraps and however well you feather it in, at that range your going to make a splosh!
I completed my lap and whipped 2 of the 3 rods in, rebaited the Chods, put 3 Oz leads on the C clips and chucked them into the corner.
