The 3rd and final venue in this years spring fishing trip and this was the big one... I first visited Festival Fishery down in Glastonbury back in late 2015 and although I only banked one fish in a 48 hour session, I promised myself I'd be back for another go.
This time I went armed with a plan: the advice I'd been given was to bait heavily and fish a rod tight to the reeds and a 2nd a rod length off the reeds on the far margin with a 3rd rod fishing as 'chuck it and see'. I was also going 'large', using 20mm custom boilies from Innate Baits and size 6 hooks (which still seem massive to me!).
And the plan paid off!

My 1st trip to Festival Fishery in Glastonbury and the 1st venue in my 40th Birthday Fishing Week 2015!
Absolutely terrible weather... It rained pretty much solidly on Thursday and Friday... The journey down from Bristol was a shocker seeing me arrive at 9pm rather than 7pm...
But I banked a fish! Which was a real result as the whole lake fished really hard that weekend. Thank you to Innate Baits, you saved me from a blank ;)
It's a bit of a special fishery and although the weather was more than challenging and the fish not forthcoming, I'll definitely be heading back for a return session soon.
