I have been out on two trips recently, deciding to fish late evening till early morning, overnight trips only and must say this area of the Thames has been screaming "fish" at me.
My gut feeling has been a good one, you know the kind of vibe and feel we get as anglers, when something feels spot on or not and we then decide to move swims, or pick one swim above another. Sometimes that feeling can work rather well and at other times it can confuse decisions and cloud logical choice. Alas both my overnight trips have resulted in blanks, on the plus side I have found a nice area for Roach, given some of the bites I was receiving on boilies, which certainly will be appealing when I eventually wish to target them, however as I write this, I must admit to wearing my hair thin from head scratching and wondering, I think that I may have jumped the gun and gone down the wrong route with these recent swim choices, so once again it's back to the drawing board and some much needed groundwork. Either way, if and when I do eventually get on some fish, I will certainly appreciate it a lot more. Fingers crossed for a better gut instinct too!
