On my last trip the going was very slow and by mid-afternoon I had the entire lake to myself. With an hour left before sunset I noticed a fish top in front of some reeds on the far bank about fifty yards to my left. I cast a rod close to where the fish showed itself and decided then to leave it there until the close of play.
Darkness was falling on the day-only venue and I was packing away when the left rod bleeped in to life. I was playing a carp! That small, fin-perfect Common made my day and I'm certain that if I hadn't seen the fish show or fished until closing I would have blanked.
