Whooped Yet Again

Pleasure Session Number 2
Seckley 28/08/2014
Dad and I revisited Seckley yesterday for our second pleasure session and to do battle in our own little competitive father versus son challenge, and to put it bluntly he whooped my ass good and proper,
 
For me I Settled on peg S2, Dad got into peg S1, my plan of action was to start off on the Pellet feeder see how things go, then maybe later have a bash on the float for an hour or so. The day stared really well or so I thought, by my 3rd cast and I was into a decent Barbel taken on ambush 6mm pellet lassoed to Pro Gold 5.4lb hook length on a Mustad specialist 14 hook. Other than foul hooking a chub and losing it close to the net which only returned two large scales on the hook, the next hour was bite less.
I then decided to give the float a go for the last couple of hours, I’d been consistently feeding a few bronze maggots every few minutes throughout the session and was hoping to get into some nice roach which are present pretty much all along the stretch.
 
Other than the one roach they didn't put in an appearance for me but dad was catching really well by the sound of things you know how it goes now “I’m into another one son” how you doing (enough said). What does bode well for the future is the amount of small fish I was taking on the float, every single trot down I was getting very small fish mostly chubblets and probably in hindsight I could have fed them off if only I’d have bought more maggots with me. 
Packing up a bit earlier than dad gave me the opportunity to see some proper sport as he called it. I sat behind him for the last half-hour and witnessed him catch two very nice quality roach and finally slip a near double figured Barbel into his waiting landing net. I had been totally annihilated by the better angler on the day, he does love rubbing it in a bit, but that’s what makes fishing so much fun.
Dad’s day started with a chub of about 3lb roughly 50 minutes after starting and he continued to catch steadily throughout the day. Feeder fishing with Ambush 3 and 4mm feeder pellets and a 6mm Ambush pellet hook bait he had a great day taking well over 40lb of Chub, Roach and Barbel

The old man said I take these sessions to seriously and need to enjoy myself more,
 I’ll beat you next time Fred Scuttle or at least I’ll try to. Until then 
Good evening viewers and tight lines
