Well ok its not actually to bad at the moment with daytime air temps around 9/10c but the brisk winds are tending to add a bit of chill to those figures and with 40-60mph winds forecast this weekend its definitely not going to feel tropical out there!
So with Winter now officially here its time to reflect on an Autumn’s Pike fishing up on the Norfolk Broads. Basically its been pretty good, somedays seemed to more like the old Broadland days with multiple runs, specimen fish, braces of big fish…….. Like all things though these great fishing periods have to come to an end and with the Norfolk rivers being very high for several weeks now, the Yare has been on flood alert several times as well, plus the unsettled weather patterns in mid/late November then it has made the fishing a bit more unpredictable at the moment.
But we were talking about Autumn not moaning about December weren’t we, so its been great to see so many new faces this Autumn plus obviously always good to see the regulars as well. Many of you left Norfolk with superb Pike to your name, plenty of PB’s as well and very few blanks so pretty good.
It’s the usual thing though now, we want the weather to settle down, bit colder and less windy would be ideal but it’s not in our hands so we’ll adapt to what ever mother nature throws at us as always and battle on.
To many names to mention as usual in this brief update but have to say it was nice to see old Lord Hornby luck at fishing still holding with some superb Pike in October, Mark P with a few nice fish and loosing his bet at beating me on a lure fishing challenge – that £20.00 was so nice, cheers Mark…lol Little bit of a shame that Ross didn’t manage to beat Andrews long time standing personal best Pike but you came close fella. Grahame & James having the pleasure of rain, hail, sleet and a few shotgun pellets all in a few hours of fishing in terrible weather. There’s loads more to tell plus some info on a new personal Pike record for me but that can all come in the next update, hopefully before Christmas.
