A blog about multi-species lure fishing and life in the U.K and abroad and a little bit more. Always believe in lures! (TheFishingboy@gmail.com)

One bite, no fish

Well... what can I say... The weather's been really awful. In terms of fishing, the conditions have been really bad. I wonder how long the bad weather is actually going to last? As a matter of fact, I can still hear rain pounding outside at the moment.

So this is the real story then. There's no shortage in cold and low pressure fronts (www.metoffice.gov.uk).

After 5 long hours hacking every single spot I could find in the canal, the recent outing came to a conclusion with just one bite, a badly rigged bait, and a miss-timed hook-set. Frankly, it was as low as it could get. I tried to remind myself that this was the canal where I've actually caught a 2.5 lb lunker early spring last year. No thanks to the weather, the canal seems dead.

No one's home. The fish seems to have all disappeared.

It's an occasion where even the fishiest looking spots felt like dead water. I've fished in quite a few countries and have actually caught fish in similar conditions, but sadly, not here in this country. Well, at least I've got that challenge to look to for the next weekend to come.

I've heard stories of this happening in real-life.

Imagine how things can change with just a month's worth of bad weather. Inset: Picture of a 2.5 lb lunker caught just last year at this very canal.

As always, thanks for reading and keep fishing. Come rain, shine, wind or snow, as long as they are out there, you can count me in.
