Wonderful autumnal day on a great lake.

Out for some R and R today at my clubs lakes, and what a fantastic autumnal day, not a cloud in the sky and some great fishing. The fish below is a Common Carp some call the Common Golden Carp which are actually not that common. The landing net ls a an 18" to give you an idea of the size of the fish. This was the first fish of the day, the last fish I caught was the second largest carp I have ever caught, defiantly double figures, but a minnow compared to what the carp experts catch. I need to get out more especially on days like today.

Giant river perch fishing with Graeme Pullen

I discovered Graeme and his son Mike a few months ago, what a breath of fresh air and what fun these guys are to watch. Graeme loves to clown around and is very self effacing, but make no mistake he is an expert fisherman. Check after all the years he has been fishing, yet still has total enthusiasm and wonder. The two perch he catches are life time best for many, and many never come close to catching a perch of this size, I doubt I ever will, enjoy.
