  • Some of the worst conditions ever to fish in...

    Well after a 35 minuete drive to the Old Hough Fisherie in Middlewich and handing over £20 i wish i had gone with my gut instinct and stayed in bed..... Ive fished in minus degrees conditions, windy conditions and rain when i cant see the tip of my rod but never all 3.... No cover just open water so i was home after 2 hours... Dammmmm it was bad out there today.

    How was it for you guys today?

    Hi.
    Fair play to you mate, it seems to be windy most of the time up there, and with it being so open.
    I drove to flushing meadows with the 2 lads, thought it may be a bit better, wrong, drove back home.
    You would have strugled at old hough, you after be over the far side, 14metres of pole in this weather = very hard work.
    Soon be summer.
    All the best steve.

        It was our first club match aswell.... Points down the drain but as you said Steve you have to fish the far bank on Old Hough and we were on Lower Benbo and 15m to the far bank.... I can imagine Flushing meadow being even worse? I should have fished the open on Meadow Veiw instead, Same conditions i know but an bit more shelter with it being tree lined. Ash on Blundells next week and i pray the conditions are not the same with that being even more open....

                ya big northern softies lol. we fished our club match in it yesterday, 10 turned up 7 finished the full 5hour match, worst i've fished in for years. Persistant Rain and upto 40mph winds, brollie disintigrated after 1/2 hour, forgot me boots, and fished in trainers (plank), landing net head fell off with a lump in it, the rivet gave up, and sat there without a smoke as two lighters gave up the ghost, soaked to the skin, managed 4th with 18lb oh bliss.

                  Fished TASE series round 2, lashing rain and wind and cold until about 15 mins from end, 19 started, 19 finished (I think a couple had an hour in their cars when it was really grim). Top performance by the SE lads. Got totally soaked and freezing cold but a good laugh as ever
