In general my session from Sept - Nov have been:
3 short sessions at the WDAA stretch of the Ribble : No beasts to note, some chublets, a stoneloach or is it a bullhead, i cant remember which is which (on 3 mags) and a few trout around a 1lb,
Blackleach - in desperation i fancied a piking session, quick 3 hours no sign of fish, too much weed (mid Oct)
Birkacre (Oct) - desperate for one last attach at the bream, with mild weather i decided to give it a go, the place was full of pikers - looks like this place is off my pike venue list, far too much pressure, Any a few roach aside, no bream.
I have been suffering from a lack of enthusiasm lately - i think Manchesterfishinfiend latest post shows you dont know what really is happening under the surface and with skill, perseverance and a little luck anything is possible - as i lack the first i will focus on the last two and see what happens.

tried the other farm, far busier but many good pegs where its was easy to get to waters edge, lots of nice fish topping but we struggled for a bite of the barb rod,
dad had loads of sliver knocks on the feeder and managed to hit a chub - a guy passed and told us if we wanted good silvers to get on the float - he did and in 30mins we saw him nail a fair few.
so not a great session but a good lesson learnt

I decided to go back as soon as possible as I was hoping to get into the bream again - so we ended up going on the tues for 3 hrs - same peg same tactics
It was a lovely evening and I was surprised we struggled for bites - I had 2 and hit the first fish within 20 mins of getting my float fished bread in the water - a lovely tench of 6lb graced my net.
Again the weekend came and i was struggling with a cold but I managed to get myself out of bed at first light and off to Birkacre - this time we moved around the lake - I wanted to target the margin tench but needed to get towards the main body of the lake hoping to intercept the bream.
With my dad and myself feeder/method fished corn/meat to the far side with little success - the only bite before the sun started to beat down was on the shared float rod on the nearside margin on bread again - dad then went on bread and fished the near side and spent 2 hours missing a few bites - I was convinced these were roach.
I brought my feeder rod in only to hit resistance - I thought that’s it I am snagged - a little tlc saw me free it and wow a lovely 4.12 bream
I missed a bite and immediately put fresh bread on and sent it straight out - and the float went straight down - I was desperate to hit the bite and prove to my dad he was missing fast roach bites when I was into something a bit bigger - a lovely 4lb bream came to the surface and my dad was getting mad by know.
What a way to finish - well done dad
Maybe if you would have hit all those bites you would have bagged up on tench - who knows
