16/7/10 Burton Mill-blank!

Today was going to be a trip with the boat to the Thames at Richmond targetting the bream.Time constraints put paid to that so,Dave and I planned to do an alternative boat trip to the Arun,after mullet.The strong winds put paid to that one, so we settled instead for a return to Burton Mill in search of tench-this time from the bank.5-00a.m to 1-00 p.m not a solitary sniff to our legered boilie and pellet baits that had worked so well on previous bank sojourns.'That's fishing'

Three anglers in boats out in the middle seemed to land a couple so it wasn't all bad on the windswept lake.

One thing of note..(something interesting always happens even when you blank)We had our rod licences checked by a couple of E.A officials.One of them was a keen tidal angler and reported that she'd caught a 9-02 mullet from the Adur last September.Dave Rigden mentioned something about this to me last year,about the same time, but it was reported as being an Arun fish.I suspect that they are one and the same fish.
