A friend at work, Andrea Simpson, asked if I would take her fishing and as I had the week off and the weather forecast looked ok, I agreed. I met her in Ilminster and after bacon sarnies we went out Dillington, the pond looked nice and I set up a waggler and the pole. I couldn’t catch on the waggler but a switch to the pole soon saw the resident perch put in an appearance. After catching a couple I let Andrea have a go and she was soon swinging in perch as well. I changed to caster and some better roach started showing.
Andrea was now fishing the waggler and casting and striking like a professional and she landed a couple of better roach as well. I ended the session catching some clonking roach on the hemp. I was a little suprised neither of us latched into any chub or perch but a very enjoyable day.
