The weather for the day was around 14 deg C, very little wind and quite bright. Over the weekend the first frost had fallen so would it affect the fishing?
I got to The Oaks at Sessay around 8am and quickly headed into the cafe for a bacon buttie and cup of tea. I spoke to Tom, the owner/baliff and he mentioned that finer lines would be the order of the day, maggot or pellet as bait. I grabbed 3 pints of mixed white / red maggots, pint of casters and some micro pellets. My other bait choice for the day would be worm and sweetcorn.
As I'd not met the Anglers Cabin crew I proceeded to walk around the different groups of anglers in the car park if they were fishing Hoppy's Memorial match... in typical fashion it was the last group I saw that were the lads.
The banter started straight away, plenty of good humoured …
