Ok something that sponsored anglers never admit is the number of blank sessions that they endure. Sometimes a blank isn’t an issue and you learn something new. The other day I had a blank that was outstanding in its banality. Nothing was moving, nothing was feeding, it was as if the lake was devoid of fish. Of course I brought it on myself by attempting to film the entire session with the gopro… Either that or we had a sudden cold snap that put icy lids on many lakes that put the fish back onto hibernation.
I tried everything I could think of, different lure colours, depths, speeds of retrieve. Nothing worked and depressingly I didn’t even get a follow. Even. Normally productive snag was lifeless and barren.
Still at least I got some exercise around a very quiet Thorneyweir 😀
