Lots of rain on Saturday meant that most of the snow had finally gone, the trouble was it had gone straight in the river meaning it was unfishable yet again. So it was back out the pond again, I spent quite a while on Saturday putting new elastic in my pole and tying up size 20 B511’s to 0.08mm hooklengths as I didn’t
