Continuing my quest to visit at least 10 new venues in 2017. Today I turned up at Rosemary Wood fisheries to fish Island pool

Today was a day when reading most social media sites most of the talk by anglers was about the weather and how bad it was

Having loaded my car up with all my gear the weather dictated to me that it was going to be a rod day so feeder and waggler

With a strong left to right wind and a decent cast to the islands I decided this was a day to clip up using a 35g feeder casting in front of me and letting the wind draw the feeder into its resting position more like a golf shot

Bait for today ended up being straight forward 6mm trigonella and excelsor pellets from Beechwood Baits and a tuna and krill groundbait with added hemp

After a few casts and finding my range the fish started to show

The Bream were certainly winning the fight to get to the bait 1st

If I got tighter to the Island then carp won the battle to the feed but this was hard even though clipped up the wind was still causing problems

The weather was by now terrible and my only option was to stay on the feeder,which to be honest was a no brainer because the bites and the fish were none stop, they were loving the feed being presented to them

A visit from Beechwood Baits promotion manager Barry Smith to check on how I was getting on and of course like any keen angler he had to have a go

the weather was bad but the fishing was great,accurate fishing resulted in building up a few nice nets of fish I think this was down to the amount of feed going in one particular area, although clipped up I did move it left and right not leaving it not letting it settle for more than about 1 minute,I cant wait to go back here and get the pole out and give it a proper go on the waggler I’m sure it will be another great days fishing
