Well I finally got the opportunity to fish a venue iv wanted to for a while and fish for (Im my opinion) collectively some of the best in the country. Linch hill, Christchurch. On hearing that it had started doing fish, I was even more buzzing to go. Plans of leaving early Tuesday were soon put on hold, so the earliest was 3.30 that afternoon. With all the gear ready and Checked I was soon on my 100m drive. Arriving after getting lost at around 5.45, I went for a walk to be greeted by a lake which was... rammo! I think there was 1 free swim, after a quick look I found some fish in there but I would be massively penned in. It also had a huge ‘candy floss’ type weed bed in front Which i didn’t fancy that clogging my lines all night, so luckily another swim became free which I soon occupied.

At 12 that night I had some action, unfortunately by a pike which thought it was a good idea to eat my tigers, subsequently taking out my other 2 rods. The fish were defiantly showing more down the other end, with the only ones I really saw In front of me on top, so a move was a must. A lad came round early that morning and had a good chat, with him advising me to put a bucket further down ASAP as a few lads were leaving later on, so I shortly did. Iv never fished these ‘circuit’ waters and there were soon people walking around looking to fish, bucketing swims where possible, even days in advance! Once again, all new to me! So I’m glad I took his advice to do it early on.

To cut a long story short they seemed to have a certain pattern of when/where they showed and that night the lad next door who I had a good social with came to wake me at 2am with the news of a fish in the net! RESULT! I was genuinely chuffed for the lad and pics of a stunning mid 20 were taken. The night passed slow for me except hearing fish crashing out and an angry coot go mental and attack anything that went near it’s nest!

The next day I decided to give the main spot a go which was the main feature of the swim. I’d given my areas I’d found a go but as this was my last night the choice was made to fish the ‘going’ spot. Few casts and it was located and two rods with tiny bags of crumb went out with a nice drop. I was going to fish the third in the margin, but thankfully mr coot persuaded me with his persistent diving to do otherwise. This went out to the left of the other two with a slightly softer drop as it hit the deck. Hookbaits were all different combinations, two half tigers and sliver of cork, an 18mm barrel and a 18mm barrel cut in half with half a tiger on top. Rods out, now time to enjoy a lovely eve and hopefully see some crashing out.

Bed soon called and after trying and failing to take some long exposure shots I went to bed. 2am and my would be margin rod, gave a few bleeps and in pure disbelief my head torch iluminated a bobbin tight to the rod, scrambling to put the waders on I still couldn’t believe it, that was until the clutch started ticking away. Standing upto my nuts playing a fish in the pitch black and pure stillness of the night was quite surreal and after a good scrap I saw a dark shape appear on the surface, with it going in the net first time. Looking in I thought it could be the Simmo as it didn’t appear to have many scales, I was super happy, but I secretly prayed for one of its famous scaleys, size regardless. After making the return favour I was soon joined by the lad next door and she pulled the reubons round to 31.4. And to make it even better it is was a scaley one!

Needless to say, the 100m drive home was no longer a chore. Lovely lake, balif and all the lads. As others said it’s almost a syndicate atmosphere and people are genuinely happy for others when they get lucky.

Buzzing
