We had quite a strong NE wind blowing today and it was still cold the temp never got above 10c.
I went around the lake with my 9ft #5 rod at lunch time and caught five losing quite a few off and i had interest in my size 16 black shuttle cock at nearly every place I stopped. Most of the fish I rose were only 4 to 6 feet from the bank and on the moorside could be seen moving in the waves in some places behind anglers who were wading.
