I stupidly thought my best chance would be to fish in the corner the wind was blowing into. It was far too windy there to put up a brolly so I set up a heavyish sliding float and fished into the wind. I had a fish after a few minutes, a roach of 10oz followed by another around the half pound mark. I thought I had made a great swim choice but alas no. I ended with eight roach in total. As the weather cleared the water became quite murky. On some other reservoirs I fish this is usually the precursor to a feeding spree, I only picked up a couple once the water had clouded.
So all in all not a great result for me but it was the first time I had been to Boddington and I would go again, preferably when it’s not blowing a hooley.
It was good to again meet up with some of the guys from here. It would be nice to have another meet up once the travel/Covid restrictions are lifted.
