A Special End to a Season
three-tone brown and a mixed brown
and green, and some of the new Chod
Rig Sleeves. He also sent me some
more of the Strip Tease Two Tone and
also some more Syncro XT. I really
cannot fault any of what I have been
sent and used so far, so I know that
the new stuff will be just as good, but
I especially like the look of the Camo
Sink Link.
Sadly for me the word had quickly
got out about my couple of bites and
I stood no chance of getting back in
there as the swim was fished solid for
the next ten days. Whenever I arrived
the swim was taken, and as frustrating as it was there was bugger all I
could do about it. Over the next ten
days Chestnuts did five further fish
while the rest of the lake looked dead.
I did a 48-hour session in the Bars
swim, which was as close as I could
get to the Dell, but for the complete 48

feed at any time. I decided to give it a
session in there, but I sat watching
them and filming them for most of it
in the back of the snags up on the surface, as they looked nowhere near up
for a feed. As I packed up at the end of
my session I knew that time was run-
ning out as due to family commitments I would not be able to return
until the Tuesday evening, and was
sure that it was going to be busy and
I would struggle for a swim.
With there being only a few days
remaining before the Road Lake season ended and the lake closed for a
couple of months, late afternoon on
the Tuesday I headed off in the hope I
could catch myself one last carp from
the lake. My plan was to do a single
