Itching to get off the mark for the year and with a limited window of time (snow forecast tomorrow) I opted for Pumphy Pond instead of Eliburn . Usually a Perch or two will greedily oblige. However nothing at all was forthcoming, not even a bite or a sighting. At least I was able to distribute the maggots I'd bought for last weeks aborted Eliburn venture (hungover).
The golf course is using its winter greens so I was able to fish round the lip of the 16th green. There was a lot less weed about than in November, but still a bit about to inhibit proceedings now and again.
