Wet Snake

Tuesday, 8 August 2017 at 20:29

Snake Grafham enjoyed - ha! - a rain-loaded blow from the North and choppy waves. The wind moderated, though not the rain, and I spent just four hours on the water. Scum lanes had formed running N>S across the lake and plenty of rainbows were in them, favouring the deepest, coolest water they could find and moving to any creatures they found trapped in or just under the film. I moved some fish to dries but then experimented with a Snake (pictured) and some Blobs, trying to excite the rainbows' curiosity. The theory was that fish would sight the Blobs, move to intercept them and then see (and take) the Snake on the point. I had any number of follows and hits but converted just two, the best a very solid rainbow of some 2┬Żlb., before rain and work pressures took me away from the water at 1400. It was no triumph but it was good to get anything at all.
