2008 A Great Year's Fishing

Well the year has come to an end, and it was a year that saw me on the bank probably around 150 times or so. One thing is for sure I certainly caught a lot of fish and had a lot of fun doing so. The highlight of my sessions would be the guided trip with Gord Burton and the 26lb Pike that I caught on Windermere, and not far behind that would be my first double off The Southport Drains a Pike of 12lb 9oz. I also had some great Carping sessions, my biggest of the season was 14lb 4oz . The best of the sessions coming from a water I joined late into the season, but I had some great sessions on there. The 12lb Sturgeon that I caught from Beacon View fishery is another capture worth mentioning. I had quite a few Tench off the sluice, mostly caught on the tip rod, with bread, and also some cracking Bream from the Canal at Sollom.
