My 8 year old son has been asking for weeks “when are we going fishing Dad” followed up with “I always catch more than you Dad” so the weather had warmed up and we headed off to Lloyds Meadow  my go to water knowing its safe surroundings and family friendly pegs on Kingfisher and Heron lakes

Simple approach of a feeder rod and shalla pole rigs using corn and dumbbell shaped Mussleberry red boilies

Feeding quite heavy to start with on the pole brought Lucas plenty of small carp

When I got the chance I caught a few myself

Through out the day as well as eating all the packed lunch Lucas caught steady mainly using the feeder rod swapping his hook baits around to keep the fish  interested

Not one moan about the weather , not one shout out “are we going home soon”but the shout out was a proud one as far as I was concerned ” when are we going again Dad “

A realy enjoyable day for me watching Lucas catch fish with help from me only to net and un hook,fishing doesn’t have to be expensive for the kids to do in fact when you have got some gear together were else could you go and spend a full day for the price of a day ticket which is between £5-£8 at most places

Thanks for reading and if you want any more information about my blogs , bait and tackle used please contact me
