I was watching Matt Hayes last night fishing Eyebrook reservoir catching some huge perch by spinning soft plastic lures , kind of got me in the mood for some stripy action. So i thought i'd try out my local wee pond this evening. I decided instead of the usual trout sized lures like wooly buggers etc, to give some saltwater sized flies a bash , i packed a few size 4 clousers and surf candies in white and a few in black. I started off with the clousers but it was slow a change to a white surf candy seemed right up there street.
About halve an hour later i did manage a nice'ish fish a small consolation. i'll be back for him though!
